A SNOW-STORM VALENTINE
Lightly, softly floating downward
Like caresses of the fair,
Feathers, airy, fairy blossoms
Of this crisp and brilliant air,
Cloudborn messengers of heaven
Grant this humble plea of mine,
Snowflakes' bear this loving message
To my own, my Valentine.
Tell her of a love more tender
Than the softness of your fall,
Purer than the spotless whiteness
Of your bright earth•covoring pall,
Steadfast till the soul's great glacier
Melts into the sea of time,
Of a love that knows no ending
W hisper to my Valentine,
Tell her when the Storm King burls you
Bruised against the window pane,
When old Koreas defiant
Shakes abroad his silvery mane,
When the blast tears madly onward
Through the moaning boughs of pine,
Softly in her ear then whisper
She's my'own, my Valentine.
SOME ATHLETIC STATISTICS.
In view of the great interest the College is tak
ing in track and field athletics this year, it might
be well to give a few figures and tabulated statis
tics that would serve for reference and be some
thing worth knowing to every student. Prof.
Hoskins has kindly given us the information and
has added a few very pertinent ideas. Part of
his contribution the physical measurements of the
Freshman class, we take the liberty of publishing
among the locals on another page.
The offering of "team caps" which was started
two years ago is one of the wisest moves yet
made in athletics. It has served as an incentive
to effort where other stronger agencies have failed,
and the ambition to wear one of these marks of
distinction has brought out some of the best of
material. We here append a list of the records
necessary for winning one of these well deserved
prizes and the names of those who have received
them with the records made at the time they were

awarded. These records do not necessarily
mean the best record ever obtained by the person,
and in the majority of cases the winner of the cap
has gone much beyond the record given while
several hold team cap records in two or more
