Of the small audience who listened to Oscar Wilde Wednesday evening, over one-half were Yale students. The Yalensians were equipped with several sunflowers, one being at least three feet in diameter, and opening like a fan. After it had been applauded once a special constable squelched it. When Oscar spoke of kissing reason's cheek, kisses were thrown him from all over the hall. He won applause by saying: "How much you Yale student-athletes have done on the field and wave," and suggesting that some of them might be subjects for statues illustrating strength and manly beauty. After the lecture Oscar tired out the students, who waited to receive him, and went off unmolested and unnoticed, smoking a Connecticut Havana cigarette of the American Renaissance.
