page publication, and was issued in nine numbers. The editoi-ial

The Cruise of the Delbeck. published under the non de plume
of Ned Lindsey. \' olume four, 1884-85, was issued in ten numbers.
The publication of the Reveille was suspended during 1885-86.

hard labor by a few of the cadets. The first number was issued in
January, 1887, the volume being completed in seven numbers.
The numbering of the volume was changed to Volume I. The
price was fixed a $1.00 per year and fifteen cents per single copy.
The editorial boai-d consisted of seven men under the following
departments, editor-in-chief, literary, local, personal, miscel-
laneous, business manager and assistant business manager.
The board was elected by the two fraternities, the X and the
A 1' n, under the rule that they alternate in the election of the
editor-in-chief and business manager. The other members of
the board were selected by the fraternities, according to their
relative membership. This method of selecting the editors
continued until the administration of President Brown, when
the editors were selected by the faculty, under his approval.

Official Organ of the Vermont National Guard." The volum.e
contained the roster of the Guards and militar}^ notes. The
connection of the Reveille with the State National Guard was
severed with the last issue in June, 1891. Volume 26 was

column. The board of editors was increased to thirteen members,
editor-in-chief, assistant editor, business and assistant business
manager, nine associate editors, and faculty representatives. For
some time, an effort had been made to have the Reveille more of
an organ of the alumni, and at the commencement of 1907, an
alumni committee of two was elected to represent the alumni and
past cadets on the board. The volume was completed in nine
numbers, the last number being chiefly a reprint of the North-
Jicld Neivs giving an account of the commencement exercises.

In the fall of 1908, the faculty representative and the alumni
committee were dropped from the board and an advisory board
of three members was elected in their place. The volume was
completed in nine numbers, the last number being largely a reprint
of the Norfhjicld News, and containing the commencement notes.
At the commencement of 1909, the constitution of the Norwich

THE WAR-WHOOP. 539



THE WAR-WHOOP.

In the spring of 1895, was published the first issue of the War-
Whooj). An effort had been made for some years previous to
publish a University annual, but it remained to the push and enter-
prise of the class of 1895 to start the publication. The annual was
styled the War-Whoo'p, a name synonymous for war-like ' deeds.
The first issue was a book of fifty -nine pages, containing several
cuts. The printed page was seven by five inches in size and bound
in University colors. It was dedicted to Gen. G. M. Dodge, '51,
who had done so much to aid the University. The editorial board
consisted of Harry C. Moseley, '95, editor-in-chief, F. B. Thomas,
'95, R. Storrs Dowe, '95, S. A. Thomas, '95, Arthur G. Andrews,
'96, W. C. Spafford, '97, and Edwin Booth, '98, associate editors;
C. J. Scribner, '96, publisher-in-chief, and James L. Averill, '96,
assistant publisher.

Several attempts were made to continue the publication, luit
failed through lack of support. In 1906, the publication was re-
sumed and has continued to date. The issue was somewhat more
pretentious than the first number. The size of the page was
enlarged to Tf by 4^ inches and contained 93 pages. This issue
and the succeeding one were bound in maroon. The issue for 1907,
contained 137 pages. Beginning with this issue the publication
was in charge of the junior class. The issue for 1908, was again
enlarged. Its page was changed to seven by five inches in size;
was bound with slate colored cloth and stamped in maroon, num-
bering 164 pages. The issue for 1909 was bound in maroon and
numbered 192 pages. At the commencement of 1909, "the By-
Laws Governing the TUar-TF/ioop"were adopted and its publication
placed under jurisdiction of the "Journalistic Association."

THE UNIVERSITY RECORD.

The {jul)lishing of the University Record was begun in October

1907, and was issued in June, August, October and December
of each year, until 1909, when it became a weekly publication.

The issues, No. 1, October, 1907; No. 2, June, 1908; No. 5,
October 1908 ; No. 24, October, 1909, and No.82, December 1910, were
the general catalogues of the University. Issue No. 3, July,

1908, contained the report of commencements. Issue No. 4,
August, 1908, contained the " Rules for the Government of Norwich
University." Issue No. 7, June, 1909, contained the report
of the librarian. Beginning with No. 8, June 17, 1909, the
publication has been issued w^eekly and has been chiefly a reprint
of the Northfield Neics, containing the record of events on the Hill.
The Record,\Yhi[e not a pretentious publication, has proven of great
value to the University, and has done much good in awakening
the interest of the alumni.

THE OLD SOUTH BARRACKS, OH!

BY COL. HENRY O. KENT, '54.

This song was written in the summer of 1855, and was at once
adopted as the college song of Norwich University, in manner
similar to the adoption of "Benny Haven's, oh!" at West Point.
It was sung on all public occasions — reunions and gatherings of
cadets — and was chanted by the alumni and past cadets, who
fought on both sides in the great Civil War.

In 1866, the South Barracks at Nor\Aach was burned, and the
University was removed to Northfield, where new college build-
ings had been erected. The supplemental verses, " Hurrah for
Old N. U.!" were written by the same author over thirty years
later, and, like the original, are dedicated to the corporation,
faculty, undergraduates, alumni, and past cadets of his Alma
Mater.

THE OLD SOUTH BARRACKS, OH !

BY COL. HENRY O. KENT, '54.

Come, pour the ruby wine, my boy.s,

And give a loud bravo
For our tried and true companion.s

Who have left us long ago;
They are scattered on the ocean

Of life's pleasures and life's woe,
And ne'er again may shout with us

In the Old South Barracks, oh!

Chorus.

In the Old South Barracks, oh!
In the Old South Barracks, oh!
-And ne'er again may shout with us
In the Old South Barracks, oh!



THE OLD SOUTH BARRACKS, OH!

Tliey have left us here to vegetate

In mihtary row,
To serve the time allotted us

Through sunshine and through snow;
But we'll treasure up in memory.

Where'er through life we go,
The names of those who've met with us

In the Old South Barracks, oh !
Chorus.

'i'o the Army and the Navy;

Each prospective grand hero,
Who went out from among us

To fight his country's foe,—
May he win a crown of laurels.

Where'er P'ame's breezes blow.
And shout amid the battle's blast

For the Old South Barracks, oh !
Chorus.

To our hero-chieftain, Ransom,

One glass before we go;
His blood bestains the rocky height

In distant Mexico.
His countr>''s flag waved o'er him

When the volley smote him low;
And we'll drop for him the silent tear

In the Old South Barracks, oh!
Chorus.

To the silver-headed veteran

Who slumbers calm and low.
West Pointers, join the chorus

From the everglades and snow ;
We'll crown with brighter memories

As onward still we go,
Our stern old founder's cognomen

In the Old South Barracks, oh!
Chorus.

To the ladies fair of Norwich,

Where'er through life we go,
. 'We'll treasure up each witching smile

They e'er did on us throw
From the " Congo's' ' dismal galleries,

And the cushioned pew below.
Or erst upon Commencement Day

PVom the Old South Barracks, oh!

Chorus.

Norwich university.



To the pretty ones who occupy

Our heart's internal row,
Who have chained us by their glances,

And have stole our 'fections so;
They have handled Cupid's arrows

In a way by no means slow.
And we'll chorus them in eau de vie

Jn tlie Old South Barracks, oh!
Chorus

To the annual Coininencenient

Oiu" hearts shall overflow,
As we lose our boon companions

Pro bono publico.
But we'll shout the chorus louder,

As o'er life's sea we go, —
A hip hurrah for old "N. U.,"

And the Old South Barracks, oh!
Chorus.

To the coming year of jnl)iiee

Our cups shall ever How,
When we hope to gather once again

In eighteen sixty, oh!
To mourn each patriot fallen,

To share each brother's woe,
And once more to join in chorusing

In the Old South Barracks, oh!
Chorus.




NORWICH POEMS AND SONGg. 545

"HURRAH FOR OLD N. U.!"

BY COL. HEXRY O. KENT, '54.

One doleful night in winter,

Full many years ago.
The bursting flames' red banners waved

Above the pallid snow;
Her blackened walls, her ruined halls,

Told shivering tales of woe;
But, phoenix-like, "N. U." arose

From the Old South Barracks, oh!
