Well, dear friends and country-men, you will shortly have passed into the ranks of those who have lengthened their names by several letters and who have more to enliven their walls than mere pictures. You will, moreover, have known the sweetness of a free ticket to Capping Ball and a toast at Undergrad. Supper. You will bear yourselves well in these things; it is therefore fitting that you be complimented. May your beards grow long and may you parent many children. Congratulations!

They gave him the kids and they ain't his'n."
