Not illustrated. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ...upon them like a diadem; Of such splendid men as these We are the heirs and legatees And our highest filial duty is to truly honor them.

Song THE SCHOOL WE LOVE DEAREST (Tune: " Columbia, the Gem of the Ocean ") O Wheaton, the school we love dearest, O pride of the schools...
