At the meeting of the Alpha Delta Phi Prof. James B. Thayer of the Harvard Law School responded to the toast, "The public service, - a trust and not a perquisite." His was a brief speech, alluding with facetiousness to his proposed trip to Greece and his mission to plant colonies of Alpha Delta Phi along the coasts of the Mediterranean. The Rev. Edward G. Porter of Lexington was introduced as a representative of the Harvard Chapter. He told of the perennial power of the fraternity, and of the life-long allegiance which the members owe to it. Men of all the educated professions are brought together, and the meetings of the association should be held every year. Mr. Edward E. Hale, Jr., '83, spoke for the young Harvard Chapter.

The sample heliotype album which was saved from the fire at Pach's studio is now on exhibition at Bartlett's. Although the book of itself is more or less smoked, the pictures are uninjured and will serve as a pretty fair specimen of those to be contained in the class album. All who have signified their desire to purchase such album are requested to see the sample at once, and to leave with their order the necessary deposit of $5. The order is to be given on the back of the class list furnished each member of the class by Messrs. Pach. As all extra copies of these class lists were destroyed by the fire, it is hoped that the members of the class will use those already received. The album order, with deposit, may be left either at Bartlett's or with the chairman of the committee. One hundred subscriptions are necessary, and these must be obtained before Feb. 15th.

The Advertiser is very facetious over the Harvard-Yale negotiations. It says editorially: "The Harvard and Yale boat clubs exchange voluminous protocols and diplomatic notes, as if they were two great powers arranging a complicated treaty. The whole trouble is caused by the fact that Yale is to row in a boat slightly longer than Harvard's, so that there is a difficulty as to deciding how the boats shall start. Harvard wishes it understood her way before she accepts Yale's challenge, and Yale wishes the challenge accepted and the matter arranged afterwards. Harvard has sent an 'ultimatum,' and the Sublime Port and Starboard committee of New Haven are deliberating their answer to it. Meanwhile trade is depressed, and the shares market is out of kilter. This tinkering with the boat race should stop, and the matter decided in one way or another, or a panic may ensue, deep-reaching and appalling."
