The caption reads : 'Fulton and Morse have exhausted the scope of invention, nor that Webster and Jefferson have reached the highest limit of statemanship; but we do belive that in these and other fields of activity there is work that we may do, and we are getting ready to enter them.  Believing as we do in co-education, we are proud to have some young ladies in our class, and regret that their number is not larger.  We give due praise to these ladies, who by their enrnest efforts, are profiting by the educational advantages which are as much theirs as anyone's else.  May their example and influence and success induce many others to pursue the same course, and to help, by larger numbers, in representing future classes.  The members of the class are not lacking in loyalty to the University and all its interests.  Thoroughly imbued with the college spirit, they stand ready to help to enlist others in the work.  We feel sure that many, if not all, of those who are now Freshmen will continue their work through the entire course, and finally go out from the University as graduates, and place their names upon the roll of the many who have gone from this institution and achieved honorable success.'
