Last evening, according to the -
torn followed every year on the ev'-ii'.i .,
of June 15, the Yale freshman ria-s
'handed over the sophomore fence to iti.j
anew sophomore class, that class on this
occasion being '99. As Is generally
known, there are three class fences on
t.he campus a senior fence, a junior
fence and a sophomore fence. The
present "fence" extends alone' the wall;
from North college to the west end o
Durfee. The original "old fence" was,
however, the fence which enclosed the
southeast corner of the campus before
Osborn hall was built on the site. When
the . old fence was torn down to make
rooiin for Osborn hall there was no
"feitjce" for over a year, but finally the
frequently expressed regrets of alumni
and undergraduates at the loss of that
time -honored institution led the faculty
to decide upon building a fence whlcn
would take the place of the old one, and
in the fall of 1S93 the present fence was
The sophomore class each year selects
a member to act as its spokesman, who
in an appropriate oration hands over
the fence to the freshmen, while fie
freshmen in turn select a member of
their class to accept.
The orations began last evening at 7
o'clock, and at that hour a crowd ot
several hundred students occupied the
space in front of Durfee, where the ora
tions were to be delivered, while in the
windows of Durfee were numbers off
ladies on hand to hear the orations and
see the fun.
The orator selected by '98 to hand
over the fence was J. H. Scranton, and
the one chosen by '99 to accept was E.
T. Noble of Wichita, Kan. Mr. Scran
ton spoke as follows:
We have no doubt, gentlemen, that
you want the fence. You've always
wanted it. It is perfectly natural that
a class like yours, which always wants
anything that it can rest its hands on,
should occasionally want something
upon which it may rest its feet. Yet,
believe me, gentlemen, you almost fail
ed to get it. Ninety-eight saved it for
you. You were so obtrusive when you
came here that the rest of the college
wanted you to get off the face of the
earth, so we decided to put you on the
fence. At the first faculty meeting
held last fall the president exclaimed
with a sigh of relief, "At last we have a
fresh subject for discussion." But af
ter you had been here awhile and they
knew more about you the faculty didn't
want you to stay. They said they
could get along without a freshman
class this year. But '9S objected. We
told the faculty that such a course
Would take away from them a great
source of pleasure and would also
spoil our beautiful system, for at pres
ent '98 sits on her fence, soon '99 will
sit on her fence, while the faculty sit
on '99. And we thought ythe good old
customs ought to be kept ijh.
But I must leave these general re
marks, and like the Greeks before Troy,
I must hasten to the horse. Yet in
disclosing your history to a forebear
tng college it is hard to know just where
to begin. You have so many stars,
some shooting stars, some stars that
often get shot. Like Long Island sound
you offer room for many jibes. As the
best way out of my predicament I'll be
gin at the beginning. That ought to
suit you, for where are you yourselves
but at the beginning?
Before you came here last fall we
heard large rumors of your greatness.
People said you were to be the biggest
class on record. We said the freshest.
And after you had arrived we found
the rumors were correct. You certainly
were the biggest class when counted
per capita. And often as we looked
across the freshman gallery in chapel
and observed the sea of nodding heads
we were tempted to remark with the
girl upon the seashore, "What awful
You had not been here long before it
was generally known that you were an
athletic class, yet you were very quiet
about It, and you increased rapidly in
modesty. We visited you often and
helped you to get acquainted with each
other and with the town. You were
shy and often retiring (or about to re
tire), but we urged you on. We prais
ed you we even flattered you. When
i you shook your fists at us, refused to
1 go out, and declared that your heads
were level, we gently asserted that they
were absolutely flat, and that your
faces were built upon the architectural
lines of a commons pie. Thus, as I
say, your gentleness increased until
you even blushed vividly whenever you
1 were obliged to turn up your trousers.
It was at about this stage of your ex
istence that in large herds you wan-
; dered to the lake, and like the snail of
wise Instincts, you crawled into your
shell. But right here let It be said that
as between the shell of the snail and
the eight-oared shell of the freshman
crew, '98 offers odds on the snail, with
good prospect of winning. And yet we
would not underestimate your oars
men; they are a goodly lot of men.
Though like the duck when moulting it
is rather hard for them to feather, yet
they are a noble set. It is with some
trepidation that I venture to speak of
them. I know that Windy Abbott has
his eagle eye fixed on me. I do not
dare to smile lest he smile, too. Those
of you who have seen Windy smile
probably understood the paragraph
which appeared In a New York paper
last fall declaring that since the advent
of the new freshman class certain

and as a member of the class he Is
quite too small a matter to mention.
In fact, I should not speak of him. but
every little counts.
But now we must pass to football, for
after all like Trilby you get there large
ly with your feet. You did well upon
the gridiron; we honor you for it. You
proved in fact that although you may
and often do make a bull of athletics
yet you stand in no fear of the tiger,
and this under the present circum
stances is very encouraging. In speak
ing of football, you doubtless expect nie
to mention Harvey, and Harvey prob
ably expects it too. They say that
Clark regarded himself as so essential
to the success of the team that he used
to lock his door each night and go to
bed with his lingers crossed for fear
somebody would steal him away. Then
there's groehy Connor, one of the few
men on the team who did not belong
to the medical school or the Bible class
if I may dare to mention these two in
stitutions in the same breath. Connor
is that well known gentleman who was
refused admittance to D wight hall be
cause he contended that Abraham went
to the Valley of Sichem for the pur
pose of seeing a dog fight.
Upon the diamond you are famous for
lots of things. Lack of space and per
haps lack of appreciation of the ridicu
lous prevent me from mentioning nil of
them. Even early in the spring when
the beautiful snow, spotlessly white,
was decorating the campus, you were to
be seen flitting, lightly clad about the ;
town. And when a respected resident
asked who you were and was told that j
you were the Yale freshmen hnsrbll J
team just beginning to work in the cage,
"Cage," said he, "well they ought to
be kept in their cage." Yet the team
could not conceal its identity long. We
soon learned, for instance, who the
Heckers were, a name of which we had
heard in the dim past as Identified with
a particular brand of oat meal. The.
twins are very fond of each other. One
of them actually refused to pay his
term bill because his brother was not
invited to the president's reception.
Then I must also mention Joe Ware;
in fact he especially asked me to speak
of him, and I am glad to gratify his
whim. But when I promised to men
tion his name he asked me to pronounce
it distinctly for he did not want to get
mixed up with his room-mate West.
He said he was the king of the fresh
man class and he did not care to share
his honors with anybody. Yet Joe is
a most generous sort of a fellow. He
even parts his hair in the middle be
cause as he says he is too fair-minded
ever to agree to a one-sided arrange
ment. As I look upon your well grown feat
ures this evening I feel that it Is not
wise to say too much for it is very
evident that there are more of you than
there are of me, and I have no desire to
borrow trouble. You yourselves are
noted for your borrowing. In fact,
since you came here this fence is the
only thing you have not touched. Your
prominent men whom from long prac
tice have gained proficiency in this art
are numerous, but none are better
known than Upton, who believes that
because he lives in what is called a
commonwealth he is always at liberty
to take the loan of five or ten, without
regard to previous acquaintance.
There are many other little games,
too, in which you excel us; one in par
ticular often played without the joker,
at which we could never beat you. The
reason is quite plain, for while our re
sources are limited, you, as you will
observe by a close inspection of Durfee,
can easily draw any number of queens.
Freshmen, in the years to come we
expect much of you. From head to
foot, including both, you are fearfully
and wonderfully made. At prfsrnt next
to Savin Rock you are the most popu
lar feature of New Haven. But do not
let that make you unduly conceited
for they say that Dante wrote his "In
ferno" after a short visit to Savin Rock.
You are an attractive class. You even
drew some men from '9S, some men
whom we had fondly cherished; men
whom we were sorry to see go, but with
whom we were forced to agree when
they declared that they needed a little
refreshing. In this class the genial
Brastow is particularly prominent. He
is an authority upon prep, schools, be
cause of the large number which he at
tended. And whenever, as often hap
pened, he suddenly and unexpectedly
left one of these instil utions his class
mates would sadly gather round him
and woefully yell "fire." He might be
called the Hephaestus of '99 in that he
has been falling, as Milton says, "from
morn to noon, from noon to dewey
eve," and some people say he is going
to get dropped again. Right here a
word must be said of the talkative
Dewey, the man who is taken on the
Glee club trips in order to supply the
members with wind when they, meet
with a reception warm enough to take
their breath away. When discovered
some distance off Dewey is usually
greeted with the same exclamation with
which the mariner greets the whale,
"There she blows!"
Gentlemen of '99. this probably inac
curate summary of some of your lead
ing characters. Including a few of our
own late lamented, cast-off characters,
is completed and now '9S hands down
the fence to you. Yet do not imagine
that you have won it hands down. Take
it gratefully, for now you can do it
safely without needing '97 to urge you
on. Guard it well. P. wear by it; don't

will perhaps ever find In the midst of
the very stamping ground of our de

which we give you now, the Sophomore
Gentlemen of 9S:
In the first part of your freshman
year your home training still manif. st
ed itself. Hut those charitable t. as
given you by some one of those charit
able ladies who took pity on your lone
liness had a bad effect. You became I
vociferous, even arrogant. The intoxi
cating effect of lukewarm tpa, without
a straw, was too much for you. You
lost all sense of the artistic and beau
tiful, so much so as to Imagine that
your own discordant shrieks and yells,
were more pleasing to the audience
than the Glee club concert. For this
act you were deservedly chastised.
But let us draw a vaile over your
last year's record. It was but the first
step, and this year the university was

rooms alone in Berkeley, addressing his
pulling and prostrate minions In
French, English, Sandwich and Hobo

stand against the last and best class of
the century a class whom the Good
Book did not forget to mention Ninety
and Nine. You are proud of your ath
letic record, but, alas! we have beaten
ery record you have ever made a
football team that went through th
entire season without losing a game: a
baseball team that defeated you wltn
ease: and a crew that will lead Wis
consin from start to finish. But I for
got you pride yourselves on your row
ing. Yes, you have a strong pull, but,
unfortunately, It is not with the fac
ulty. The mental strength of your
oarsmen is not in equilibrium with
their physical. When they exercise one
they lose the other. Accordingly, you
have to call upon '99 to fill the empty
places in your boat when you wish to
Your only real track athlete, your
hurdler, obtains his wonderful form
from nature. When a small boy he
dreamt that he saw the cow jump over
the moon. This seemed a favorable
portent, and ever since he has been
imitating that graceful animal admir
ably. High, the silver tongued orator, from
Honolulu, is next on the list of your
loud men. He and Buck, and Weston,
blow gales about the campus. Whoever
wrote, "Man wants little here below.
nor wants that little long," didn't know
Buck. They changed waiters at his
table at commons, the other day. and
when Buck came in and yelled, "Bring
me four dinners and a gallon of soup,"
the waiter fainted.
In direct contract to your prim,
nicely fitted men, like Frederick van B.
and William Whiting A., whose blue
blood is easily discernible under a
microscope, is the strawberry blond",
who is always so conspicuous on great
occasions. After a careful diagnosis ot
his case, we have come to the conclu
sion that his tailor is blind. He is es
pecialy noted for the fit and number of
his golf suits. While speaking of your
valiant marshal and great occasions let
us stop a moment and consider how and
why it happened. Your display was
beautiful. Cavalry, infantry, artillery
and foolery. From the amount of fuss
you made one would think that you
really thought you could play baseball.

attached to it, because it placed him be

"Discord oft in music makes the sweet

There is Gren, who
"Utters such dulcet and harmonious

divine Brewer;" Marshall, the boy so
prano, and last but not least, George
otherwise known as "Dutch."
"His voice more gentle than the sum
mer breeze
That mildly whispers through the wav
ing trees."
In a literary career you started out
boldly. "The Kipling club was found
ed for the puiyose of promulgating a
literary appreciation in the sophomore
class." All well and good. "The Stev
enson club began on a somewhat differ
ent basis, meetings being held once a
week, at Billy's restauiant, but after a
time this plan was found impractic
able." Outsiders are left to draw their
own conclusions. The question is now,
whether Mr. Kipling cast any reflec
