THE SOPHOMORE CLASS SUPPER.
After doing full justice to the supper, the class was called to order by the president of the evening, Mr. F. W. Thayer, who made a few appropriate remarks. Then followed the oration by Mr. Tufts, and the poem by Mr. Eyre. The ode, written by Mr. B. Tuckerman, was sung by Mr. Paullin. The regular toasts were given by Mr. Blaine, and were responded to as follows: "The Class of '78," drank in silence: "The Institute," Mr. Homans; "The Athenaeum," Mr. Moore; "The Boating Interest," Mr. Littauer; "The Nine," Mr. F. W. Thayer; "The Eleven," Mr. Lombard; "The Press," Mr. B. Tuckerman; "The Lampoon," Mr. W. S. Otis; "The Musical Societies," Mr. Paullin; "The Art Club," Mr. P. Tuckerman. The class songs were well sung under the able leadership of Mr. Dorr.
By midnight the last crowd was homeward bound, and in due time reached the Square without the aid of any guardians of the Port's peace.
The Sophomore supper is the only time when the class meets socially, and for this reason each member should feel it his duty to make every exertion to be present. The many who were absent will never know all they missed; while to those who were present, an allusion to the supper will bring up some of the pleasantest memories of their college life.
