change his mind in this particular, and so he is back with us
again. While a good law sludenl he does not believe in putting
all his lime to the study of law. for he is occasionally seen
strolling along the banks of the North River in such company
as to induce a reasonably prudent man to believe he is a ladies'

Poland started, but, being a man who knows a good thing when

have been shattered. He is now bending his every energy
towards becoming a great lawyer.

Pyle came here sometime ago and is about to lake his second
degree. Having made contracts by the sleep route, he tried the

the teacher and this year has found him awake with the same
dust in his eyes. Pyle is also not without fame as an actor,
laking a leading pari in "The Balloon." A senator without
reproach and a lawyer without a client we find him; also
one learned in other matters outside the law, for was he not
an Assistant in German for one whole year? His early
attempts as a lawyer show a marked ability to prevent damages
from being recovered against his clients and may he always
be as neurotically successful. Calyx Board. 1911-12.

Be not amazed, curious reader, at unconvenlionalily, informality, heait-breaking f ankness, and
Twentieth Century "Catoism." It is a conspicuous departure, but is in keeping with our dual subject.

It is a source of regret and remorse that we can not offer a joint sketch, or even a skelch in severalty.
It would depict both the most verdant rural scenery, and at the same lime the fne lineaments that were
wont lo be seen in the countenances of Romulus and Remus.

The "one"— the older, "C. N."— has eyes that flash like zigzag lightning on the da kest midnight;
a tongue that is crushing with bitter vituperalion when the sloim is on; and, if you please, a face —
noble as it is — which is as stoic, determined and ironbound as ever Napoleon had in his m:>st agonizing
moments of indigestion. Yet there smolders beneath the fire and smoke the most refined humanilarian
spirit and a soothing gentleness which may oft be sought in vain among those of the fairer sex. 1 his
is he — the English Instructor, President of the Senate, el cetera.

The "other" — the younger, Peyton — has a face passing fair, excruciatingly scrutinizing eyes, and a
lantalizing smile. When pressed to the wall in a heated argument Ins minimizing glance vanishes and
is replaced with a knit forensic brow, his voice becomes more sonorous and slower, his nose slightly
dilated, and he resembles the classic steed. He is using smokeless powder, but his aim is deadly. Half
reclining, with his cap pulled far down, he dotes on the Math, of Probabilities and Chances. Why he
wishes lo be angelic, but wants everyone lo ihink he is the antithesis, is mole than mortal tongue can
say, yet it is undeniable. This is he — the Math. Instructor, President of the Student Body, some lime
lootball player "und wider."

Their dual uniqueness is attested by the length of their stay here, and their mannerisms — being at the
same lime fire-eaters and pacifiers. Scalier, you w.ongdoers of Kentucky, but gather unlo them you who
would seek the counsel of lawyers.

history are here "entered of record." This entry will also serve to notify
the various states of their future hopes in the legal profession.

To the cities, towns and villiages of all save seven of the states came
letters in 1911 that amply convinced one hundred and twenty-five recipients
ol the advantages of Washington and Lee and the attractions of Lexington.
It was September 14, 1911, when we arrived, each carrying a suit-case lull
to its capacity of assorted high-grade ambitions.
"Daddy," "Sunny," and "Joe" immediately acquainted us with our chosen pro-
fession and we proceeded in the library to search out many fine points in Contracts. Toils
and Carriers. So diligent, indeed, was our application that we never did learn the
location of Willie Higgins' and McCrum's pleasure palaces until well alter Christmas.

Despite our strict attention to duty, we were well represented in athletics. We

After the well deserved holiday at Christmas we returned in almost our lull number
and plunged again into our tasks.
