FOOLED! . . . . . .
Never were you so completely disappointed as
you will be this evening long before the perfor-
mance begins to give the least sign of coming to an
end. Did you say you came to have a good laugh?
There is not a funny passage in the whole play.
But we advertised [Note: in italics] Lots of fun, Funniest thing you
ever heard, If you never laughed before, you
couldn't refrain from it now, There won't be a but-
ton on your coat after the play? [Note: end italics] True; but did
you believe us? Poor deluded creatures, we pity
you. Don't you know that Class Day is to make
fun of somebody? and this time it's you. We're
sorry that you were no wiser, but what does it
matter to us? We wanted an audience of fools
and sure enough we have one. Our thanks for
your obliging simplicity.
But the nature of the performance? you still
persist. Though we despise you for your credulity
though we scorn you for your gullibility, though
we spurn your opinion as unworthy our considera-
tion, yet, because we have hearts of infinite pity,
we condescend to answer your inane questions.
You must know, though we believe you never will,
that one night last winter, when the snows lay

cold and deep upon the shivering bosom of mother
earth, we went to a certain magician of great re-
nown and marvelous power, by the which same
power he oped, so great his control over the forces
of nature, the gates of Death and Hell and sum-
moned forth the shade of Shakespeare. His long
confinement of three hundred years under ground
had so wrought upon this venerable gentleman
that many years since he had gone mad. How-
ever, we knew well enough that he, even in this
condition, could furnish us material for this even-
ing, which would be far too good for such an
audience as sits here tonight, though like enough
to give the delirium tremens to such Shakespeare
scholars as Krans or Benny. The shade, under-
standing that his utterances to us that night
would never be made public in a cultured audience,
readily consented to let us take down a few of his
ravings, and when we told him that Sauvain, who once
said that his coat-tails were the biggest part
of him, would be only representative of the
University in the field hee tonight, he expressed
his complete satisfaction. Therefore, know that
what you listen to tonight are the ravings of
But enough: we forbear to say more lest we
offend Bill Evans or displease the classic taste of
the Freeport Twins.

Graduating Class

SCENE: Gymnasium; Commencement Day
Audience seated. Enter HOLDEN, followed by the Faculty, who
take their seats on the stage. Enter Graduating Class
two by two and seat themselves on the stage.
Enter two Aged Couples. Holden
rises to speak. Applause.
Hol: Ladies and gentleman, kind friends: the
custom of having all seniors speak on Commence-
ment Day was so repugnant to the present Gradu-
ating Class, that I have decided to grant their
petition, which asks that three of their number
alonespeak, and I am sure the faculty, one of whom
I am which, will consent to this arrangement at
their next meeting on Saturday at eight a. m.
sharp. The program shall not exceed one hour,
that's sixty minutes, not sixty-one or seventy-
five, yes, even if I have to call the last
orator down. So without more ado we shall
proceed to business. (Reads) J. J. Mackintosh,
magna cum laude, salutatorian, will deliver his
oration, The Metaphysics of Space Considered in its
Ultimate Analysis. Let me say in passing that
Mr. Mackintosh was recommended to magna cum
laude because of his brilliant work in Philosophy.
Faculty and audience gradually go out
Hol: (reads) Miss Edith Mercer Davis, magna cum

laude, literary orator, will deliver her oration,
Present Problems.
Miss Davis: Present Problems
More going out Before the next oration is done, all are gone
but Holden, Strong, and the two Aged Couples.
Hol: (reads) F. M. McCreary, summa cum laude,
valedictorian, will deliver his oration, Toward
What Are We Tending?
McC: Toward What Are We Tending?
Applause and all return
Hol: As we close, dear friends, let me express to
you my gratitude for such diligent attention to
this tedious program. Let me urge you further,
in behalf of this excellent class, to attend their
Class Day Exercises this evening at the City Opera
House. Having heard that some things in it
might be so objectionable to the faculty as to
cause them to withhold all diplomas, I persuaded
the class not to give this performance till after
Commencement Day. To this they kindly con-
sented. Therefore, I invite your presence to their
Class Day this evening.
I have the following engagements to announce.
During the announcements Benny goes out and returns with an
armload of diplomas, which he gives one by one to
Holden, who gives them to the members of the
Graduating Class

Hol. And now in closing, let us sing No. 351,
That Famous College Class.
That Famous College Class
(Tune: Little Persimmon Tree.)
Soe green little Freshies once came to a school,
O green, O green as grass;
But though they were green, not one was a fool,
This good little Freshman Class.
By kindly Profs nurtured, by classics all fed,
Each promising student soon held up his head.
And lo, in a year all the greenness had fled,
This now brilliant Freshman Class.
They're all boasting Sophomores in the next year.
So well, so well they pass;
They flourish their canes, nor have they a fear,
That awful bad Sophomore Class.
With heads growing larger from day unto day,
"They surely will burst", all their enemies say,
"Unless something happens without more delay,
That big-headed Soph'more Class."
But meek patient Juniors they turned out to be,
So good each lad, each lass;
O, they were perfection all people agree,
This proper, grave Junior Class
They studied and dug from morning till night,
Whatever they did, they did with their might,
They never were wrong, and often were right,
This plain quiet Junior Class.

When next they came back to the old college town,
So learned, so learned, alas,
They dreamed of the future of fame and renown,
That dignified Senior Class.
They studied the earth and the heavens above,
Cosmology's problems with Bowne did prove,
And end the last year with each other in love,
That mighty fine Senior Class.
After song, Class marches past Holden, who shakes each by the
hand, shedding copious tears, while the Class weeps
into a long strip of muslin that Holden has
produced as a handkerchief
Music playing a funeral march
SCENE: Denmark; a room of state in the castle
Enter KING, QUEEN, HAMLET and Lords Attendant
King: Though yet of Ajax and his oft said jokes
The memory be green, and that it us befitted
Yet so far hath their staleness overcome
That we our sometime college, now our mater,
In equal scale, weighing delight and dole,
Are forced to quit.
Now follows what you know: young Eggerman,
Making a wild proposal to his love,

On thinking that our late dear brother Good
Had left him out of T. N. E. entire,
Colleagued with the dream of his advantage,
He hath not failed to butt us with the Beta goat,
Demanding the surrender of the hand
Lost by young Michael. So much for him,
But now, my cousin Hamlet, and my son,---
Ham (aside): A little more than kin and less
than kind.
King: How is it that the clouds still hang on you,
Sprung of thy love for fair Miss Kittredge?
Ham: Not so, my lord; I am too much i' the sun.
King: (aside) Too much on the bum.
Queen: Good Hammie, chuck thy nighted color off
And let thine eye look like a friend on Denmark.
Do not forever with thy veiled lids
Seek for thy noble papa in the dust:
Thou know'st 'tis common; all that lives must
Ham: Ay, madam, it is common.
Queen: If it be,
Why seems it so particular with thee?
Ham: Seems, maw! Nay, it is; I know not seems.
'Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,
Nor customary suits of solemn black,
Nor windy suspiration from Bill Clokey,

That can denote me truly; these indeed seem,
For they are actions that a man might play;
But I have pain within which passeth show;
These but the traps and Nick Amster suits of woe.
King: 'Tis rare and juicy in our nature, Ham,
To give these mourning duties to your dad:
But you must know your father lost a father;
That father lost, lost his, and so ad infinitum.
Why should we in our peevish opposition
Take it to heart? Fie! 'tis a fault most grievous
To the deceased dead. We pray you, dump to earth
This unprevailing woe and think of us
As of a father. But for your intent
In going back to school in Otterbein,
It is most retrograde to our desire.
Queen: Let not thy mamma lose her wishes,
I pray thee, stay with us; go not to O. S. U.
Ham: O mamma, I shall in all my best obey you.
King: Why, 'tis a loving and fair reply:
Be as ourself in Denmark. Madam, come;
This gentle and unforced accord of Ham
Squats smiling to my heart: so let's away.
(Exeunt all but Hamlet
Ham: O, that this too, too solid fat would melt,
Thaw and resolve itself into a dew!
How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable

Seems to me all the uses of this world!
Holy suffering cats! That it should come to this!
But two dogs dead; nay, not so much, not two;
So excellent a king; that was to this
As Ajax is to Behot; so loving to maw
That he might not permit his own sweet breath
Visit her face too roughly. Donner und Blitzen!
Let me not think on't-Frailty, thy name is Packer!
A little month, or ere those shoes were old
With which she followed my poor papa's body,
Like Niobe, all tears:-why she, even she-
A beast like Krans that wants discourse of reason
Would have mourned longer--married with my
My paw's brother, but no more like my paw
Than I to sporty Vance. Within a month,
Ere yet the salt of her crocodile tears
Had left the flushing of her galled cheek,
She hitched. O most wicked speed.
It is not, nor it cannot come to good;
But break, my heart; for I must hold my tongue.
Oph: Good, Hammie,
How do ye do for this many a day?
Ham: I humbly thank you; well, well, driven well.
Oph: Hammie dear, I have remembrances of yours
That I have longed long to redeliver;

I pray you, now receive them.
Ham: Cut it out;
I never gave you aught.
Oph: Now, Hammie dear, you know right well
you did.
Take these again; for as Spokespeare says,
Poor chewing wax to the noble mind
Rich gifts become, when givers prove unkind.
There, my lord.
Ham: Ha, Ha! you think you're smart.
Oph: What do you mean, Ham?
Ham: I did love you oncet.
Oph: Indeed, Hammie, you made me believe so.
Ham: Don't you care; I loved you not.
Oph: I was the more took in.
Ham: Get thee to the Dorm; I'm not the only
pebble on the beach. But yet I could accuse me of
such things that it were better my mother had not
borne me; I am very proud, revengeful, ambitious,
with more offenses at my beck than I have
thoughts to put them in, imagination to give
them shape, or time to act them in. What should
such fellows as I do, crawling between earth and
heaven? We are arrant knaves, all, believe none
of us. Go thy ways to the Dorm. Where is

Oph: He's at home, Hammie.
Ham: Let the doors be shut upon him, that he
may play the fool nowhere but in's own house.
Oph: O help him, you sweet heavens!
Ham: If thou dost marry, I'll give thee Julius for
thy dowry: be thou as chaste as Wooster Artificial
Ice, pure as Benny's liquid air, thou shalt not
escape him. Get thee to the Cottage, scat! Or, if
thou wilt needs marry, marry Pugh; for wise men
know well enough what fools you make of them.
To the Cottage git, and quickly, too. Farewell.
Oph: The most unkindest cut of all!
Ham: I have heard of your paintings, too, well
enough; you have one face and make yourselves
another; you jig, you amble and you lisp and
nicknames all creatures and make your wantonness
your ignorance. Go to, I'll no more on't; it hath
made me mad. I say we will have no more mar-
riages; those that are married already, all but one
shall live, the rest shall keep as they are. To the
Cottage go. (Exit
Oph: O what a noble mind is here o'erthrown!
Like Howell in his sporty corduroy
And sweater,
The plate of fashion and the mould of form,

The observed of all observers, quite, quite down!
And I, of ladies most deject and wretched,
That sucked the honey of his music vows,
Now see that noble and most sovereign reason,
LikeSchwartz'ssymphonies, out of tune and harsh;
That unmatched form and feature of blown youth
Blasted with ecstasy. O woe is me,
To have saw what I seen, to see what I see.
SCENE: Verona; Capulet's orchard
Rom: He jests at scars that never felt a wound.
JULIET appears above at a window
But, soft! what light through yonder window
It is the East and Juliet is the Sun!--
Arise, fair Sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief
That thou her maid art far more fair than she
It is my lady, O it is my love!
O that she knew she were!
She speaks, ay, ay, she cackles just as Faye.
Her eye discourses; I will answer it.
I am too bold; 'tis not to me she speaks

The brightness of her cheeks would hold compare
With Evans and his Pearl; her eyes in heaven
Would through the airy regions shine so bright
That Preps would sing and think it were not night.
See, how she leans her cheek upon that hand,
That I might touch that cheek!
Jul: Ah me!
Rom: She speaks.--
O cackle on, bright angel; for thou art
As glorious to this night, being o'er my head,
As is Prof Wilson to a featherbed;
He whose white-upturned wondering eyes
Gaze on the stars that him despise,
While he bestrides the lazy-pacing clouds
And sails upon the bosom of the air.
Jul: O Romie, Romie, wherefore art thou Romeo?
Deny thy paw and refuse thy name;
Or, if thou wilt not, be but sworn my love
And I'll no longer think of Jimmie Begg.
Rom: (aside) Shall I hear more, or shall I speak
at this?
Jul: 'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, although thou canst sing.
What's singing? Is it nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. Rome, doff thy name,

And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.
Rom: I take thee at thy word:
Call me but love and I'll be new baptized;
Henceforth I never will be Rome.
Jul: What man art thou that like bald Oliver
Dost make melodious din?
Rom: Thank heaven,
I have not Byron's shining pate,
or Shomo's curly locks. My name, dear girl,
Is hateful to myself as 'tis to thee;
I know not how to tell thee who I am.
Jul: My ears have not yet drunk a hundred words
Of that tongue's utterance, yet I know the sound:
Art thou not Romeo and a Montague?
Rom: Neither, fair saint, if either thee dislike.
Jul: How cam'st thou hither, tell me, and where-
The orchard walls are high and hard to climb
And the place death, considering who thou art,
If Madam Packer find thee here.
Rom: I came by 'phone and should she find me
I care not: for the fire-escape's at hand.
Therefore Dama Packer is no let to me.
Jul: If she do see thee, why, she will break thee up.

Rom: Alack, there lies more peril in thine eye
Than twenty of her whines: look thou but sweet
And I am proof against their enmity.
Jul: I would not for the world she saw thee here.
Rom: I have a night cloak to hide me from her sight;
And if thou love me, let me here parade.
My life were better ended as a Bowery tough
Than die of cold from waiting for thy love.
Jul: By whose directions art thou monkeying
Rom: By Clokey's, who did prompt me to in-
He lent me clothing and I lent him cash.
I am no pilot; yet wert thou as far
As that vast shore washed by the farthest sea,
I would adventure for such merchandise.
Jul: Thou know'st the mask of night is on my
Else thou would'st see the paint upon my cheek.
Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say 'Ay',
And I will take thy word. O gentle Romie,
If thou dost love, pronounce it faithfully:
Or, if thou think'st I am too quickly won,
I'll frown and be perverse and say thee nay,
So thou wilt woo; but else, not for the world.
I should have been more coy, I must confess,

But that thou overheardst, ere I was ware,
My true love's passion.
Rom: Lady, by yon green cheese I swear
That tips with silver all these fruit-tree tops--
Jul: O swear not by the moon, th' inconstant
Rom: What shall I swear by?
Jul: Do not swear at all;
For if thou dost, old Compy's listening ear
May catch the sound and send thee to thy doom.
Please do not swear: although I joy in thee,
I have no joy in hearing such words:
They are too rash, too unadvised, too sudden,
Too like Pete Shupe. Now sweet, good night.
Rom: O wilt thou leave me so unsatisfied?
Jul: What satisfaction dost thou want tonight?
Rom: O any thing at all: come down the fire-es-
Jul: I thought of that before thou didst request;
Only it doth make a squeak when one descends.
(Nurse calls within
I hear some noise wihtin; dear love, adieu!
Anon, good nurse!--Sweet Montague, be true.
Stay but a little, I will come again. (Exit above
Rom: O curse the moon tonight! I am afeard
It is so light that Gus will catch me here. (Retiring

Re-enter Juliet above
Jul: Whist, Romie, whist!
Rom: It is my soul that calls upon my name.
Jul: Romie!
Rom: My dear?
Jul: At what o'clock tomorrow
Wilt thou call on me?
Rom: From seven to ten.
Jul: I will not fail: 'tis twenty years till then.
'Tis almost morning; I would have thee gone,
And yet no further than a wanton's bird,
Who lets it hop a little from her hand
And with a silk thread plucks it back again
Rom: I would I were thy bird.
Jul: Sweet, so would I:
Yet I should kill thee with much cherishing.
Good night, good night! parting is such sweet
That I shall say good night till it be morrow.
Rom: Sleep dwell upon thine eyes, peace in thy
Would I were sleep and in pieces, so sweet to rest!

SCENE: A street in Verona
Mer: Where the deil should this Romeo be? Went
he not to the Dorm tonight?
Ben: No, to Westminster; I saw him there.
Mer: Ah, that same pale, hard-hearted wretch,
that Cottelene torments him so that he will sure
run mad.
Ben: No, not Cottelene today: Cottelene is dead.
Mer: Dead! Holy smoke! Then Romeo is no more
on earth.
Ben: Dead to him, dead forgot; out of sight, out
of mind; that's his psychology. She went driving
with Mrs. Ajax yester-afternoon. Romeo hadn't
seen her fully twelve hours and that was
time enough for him to forget. Meantime he saw
another woman's face.
Mer: So farewell, Cottelene; get thee to a pantry.
She lasted Romeo fully five days; that's longer
than the average. Last week it was Lucie Bella
Cass, except the first part of the week, when it was
Marie Augusta Lehmann.
Ben: But this new flame burns like the calcium
light, they say. He swears it shall be eternal as
Benny's fiery eyes.

Mer: So? then it will last a full week. Not so,
however; it will exhaust itself the sooner. I heard
him swear the same six different trusting Free-
port maids on six consecutive days during our
stay at Highland Park last summer and every
time more dead in earnest than the last. But who
is this new lightning-bug?
Ben: Speak not so lightly boy, it's Juliet, the
daughter of old Capulet. Romeo had been help-
ing himself in old Cap's orchard the other night,
when the young lady who was airing herself and
humming After the Ball on the balcony, accosted
him with What man art thou? Romeo introduced
himself and they fixed the matter up on the spot.
Mer: By all the unholy profs! Montague and a
Capulet wed! Sooner will the Montagues and Cap-
ulets eat each other at the Archer House for Sun-
day dinner. Besides, Juliet has been betrothed by
the family to Paris these ten years.
Ben: Juliet has got into her teens and has some-
thing to say about that little matter herself now.
Mer: What does it matter? Romeo won't inter-
fere with Paris. Tomorrow Juliet will be as stale
as Ginger by that time it will be Grace Packer,
next day Faye Blayney, Bertha Rogers--anybody
that's a woman!
Enter ROMEO, looking sad and dejected

Hello, old boy; been hearing bad stories about
you. I can't believe it. Benvolio actually tells me
that you're engaged. I never heard a story so
presposterous; I say it's impossible; it isn't like
you, eh?
Rom (sadly): He jests at scars that never felt a
Ben: Scars, wounds! why, you have more scars
now than a man just over the small-pox. What
are scars or wounds to you? you're used to both
as Krans to Ginger's smiles.
Rom: Alas, good friends, I pry' thee, do not mock
The tempest in my tortured soul outraves
Wild Benny's fury when he beats upon
The desk and chews his fierce moustache.
Mer: Patience, dear friend, 'tis only for a day,
Then some new love will drive your woe away.
Rom: Ah, read o'er this sad scroll, the cruelest
That ever blinded eye with scalding tears.
Alas, the beast was curst, from whose black side
The skin was torn to make this parchment vile.
Black Hecate, at dead midnight, when lone grave-
yards yawn
Mid spirits' cries and witches ululations
The ink compounded out of deadly nightshade

And blood of strangled babe and hangman's bones.
Mer: Avast, there! you give me the shivers. I
swear it's a neat typewritten note by Juliet's own
stenographer. Shall I read it?
Rom: If you fear the fiery words burn out
Your pea-green eyes. The dismal tone thereof
Will sound like Chambers' voice. I'll stop mine
Mer: (reads) To mine honored lord, Rome of
the House of Montague.
Kind and respected Signior:--
I have slept over our
little confab of the other evening and am inclined
to think our action was a trifle hasty. I was
taken unawares, and somewhat flurried, I fear.
Besides, I find the family is dreadfully opposed to
it; so I guess we had better call the matter off, be-
fore it goes further.
Juliet of the House of Capulet.
Ben: Faithfully! ever faithful as the wind.
Rom: Mercushe, farewell; adieu, Volie. I must
from hence to purgatory, Prexy's, hell itself.
Ben: To purgatory, hell! you'll be in heaven
again tomorrow.

Rom: Heaven is here where Juliet lives and every
cat and dog
And little Soph, every unworthy thing,
Lives here in heaven and may look on her;
But Romeo may not; he is far from hence.
Farewell, sweet friends; sunny Italy, farewell.
I'll seek the frozen northlands far away,
Never Italy--never face of maid to again behold.
Mer: Bybye, Romie; don't forget your engage-
ment with us at Bowers' tomorrow. (Exit Romeo
Ben: O he'll be there, never worry.
Pet: Can you read, Signior Mercutio?
Mer: That depends on what is to be read. Not if
it is any laundry bill; if it is a challenge, yes, from
any man.
Pet: I am sure it's neither of these. Read.
Mer: (reads) Freshman Duckworth and his wife
and daughter;
Josephus Miller and his beauteous sister;
The college widow, Big Bess Johnson;
Signior Prep-Amstutz and his tenor voice;
Mercutio and his friend Benvolio;
Mine uncle Capulet, his wife and daughters;
The fair Cecelia Remy;
Signior Valentio and his cousin Tybalt;
Espey and the lovely Clara.

Ben: Truly, the elite of Verona, excepting present
company. What is all this?
Pet: My master, the Signior Capulet, gives a ball
and supper tonight; these are the guests. I am
bid pray you to come and see the freaks with us.
Rest you merry.
Mer: Look here, Pete; I have jolly new ac-
quaintance, not so jolly though, I must confess; a
fellow from Norway, or Denmark, or some other of
those one-horse holes, whom I ran against on the
fourth floor stairs the other day. He's a little
slow and poky, but he's rich and handsome and, I
dare avow, from a first family, as northern fam-
ilies go. What do you say? Will your master's
wrath awake, if I bring this dead game sport
Pet: Signior Mercutio, I think you'd see I didn't
make out this blasted list; but as it is a masque, I
venture, if you bring this sport along, my master
will not make the beggar 'ot, nor you on 'is ac-
count. Adieu. (Exit
Mer: Come, Volie, let us git and spruce up for the
dance. (Exeunt

SCENE: Verona; Capulet's garden
A pause after the dance. Masquers promenading
Music still playing softly
Cap: I bade you welcome, dearest friends, before
The dance, both gents and ladies fair.
You've tipped the toe right merrily.
We'll sit, we'll sit, good cousin Capulet;
For you and I have got the rheumatiz.
How long is't since last yourself and I
Were in a masque?
Sec. Cap: By our lady, thirty years,
Come Pentacost as quickly as it will.
Cap: I'll eat my hat! How time and youth fly by!
Ham: (pulling Peter's sleeve) What lady rare is
that which doth enrich
The hand of yonder knight?
Pet: I know not, sir.
Ham: O she doth teach the torches to burn
It seems she hangs upon the cheek of night
Like a rich jewel in an Ethiope's ear;
Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!
Did my heart love till now? Forswear it, sight;
For I ne'er saw true beauty till this night.
Gad, Mercushe, who is that beaut?

Mer: The daughter of old Capulet, by her stature.
Ham: And he that walks with her?
Mer: Paris-green, a kinsman to Prof Nota della
Ham: Her lover?
Mer: One of them.
Ham: The deuce! how many has she?
Mer: Enough to make a squadron; only the
blind and aged are exempt.
Tyb: (to Cap.) This by his voice should be a Mon-
Fetch me my rapier: by the honor of our kin,
To strike him dead I count it not a sin.
Cap: Why, how now, kinsman? Wherefore storm
you so?
Tyb: Uncle, this is a Montague, our foe,
A villian, scab that hither comes in spite
To scorn at our solemnity tonight.
Cap: Content thee, gentle coz; go, get a bone.
I would not for the wealth of all the town
Here in my house do him a Sheeny act.
Therefore, be patient, take no note of him,
Make googoo eyes and tote them frowns away,
An ill becoming semblance for a feast.
Tyb: It fits when such a hobo is a guest;
I cannot stomach him.

Cap: He shall be stomached.
Am I the guzzler here or you? Go to.
Tyb: Why, uncle, 'tis a dirty trick.
Cap: Dry up;
You are a saucy boy; I'll make you quiet.
Tyb: (aside) Geewhiz, you're not so warm; I will
Jul: (to Ham) Who are you, sir, that speak our
tongue with feigned accent?
Ham: A stranger, an idler in Verona, though not
a gay one; a black butterfly.
Jul: Our Italian sun will gild your wings for you.
Black, edged with gilt, goes gay.
Ham: I am already not so sad-colored as I was.
Jul: I would fain see your face, sir; if it match
your voice, it needs must be a corker.
Ham: I would we could change faces.
Jul: So we shall, at supper.
Ham: And hearts, too.
Jul: Ah, this is so sudden; but I'll quit my mask
and you yours. Yet, if you are puddin'-face, do
not unmask.
Ham: O cut it out; I have a lovely mug. An I
see your face at supper, I shall carry it forever in
my little handbag.
Mer: Hamlet, Tybalt, the dirty dog that just now

was talking with old Capulet, thinks we're Mon-
tagues. Let us make our sneak.
Exeunt Mercutio and Hamlet
Cap: Come, gentle freaks, gallants and ladies fair;
We have trifling banquet up our sleeve,
A farewell spread for Wooster's Naughty Ones,
Which I would have you all engorge.
Let the musician play a ragtime march. Forth-
with lead on. (Exeunt all but Nurse
Jul: (returning) Quick, quick, good nurse, come
hither. Saw you, dear,
That gay young sport, who spoke to me erstwhile
In accents honey-sweet?
Nur: Ah, ladybird.
Jul: As you love me, nurse, tell me his name,
Nur: Young Behoteguy.
Jul: No, stupid, no!
Not the one in green, but he alone who wore
The rich black domino and purple mask.
Jul: Quick, haste thee after.
He hath left the hall. Go head him off
And ask his name. (Exit Nurse) Ah, if he wedded
The grave my resting place is soon to be.

We long have loved a college town,
We're going tomorrow,
Whose streets we've wandered up and down,
We're going home tomorrow.
We've been working here in Wooster
All these four years long,
We've been working here in Wooster
To make our minds grow strong.
Profs have watched the wisdom sprouting,
Shine out so plainly in each face;
Don't you hear our Prexy shouting,
Seniors have first place?
Sing a song of classes,
Put your books away,
Seniors ne'er were so happy,
As they are now today.

Freshmen for their mossy looks
Sophomores for fun,
Juniors for their scorn of books,
But for Seniors--work is done.
SCENE: A hall in Capulet's house
Enter: CAPULET, Lady CAPULET and Nurse
L. C: To think that Juliet, our turtledove,
Could once have thought of madcap Romeo!
It makes me tired.
Cap: Me angers more the fact she will not wed
The County Paris. Indeed, she made short work
With Romeo, as I bade her; sent him weeping
Like a whining babe from out Verona's walls
And whither no one knows.
L. C: We'll not seek him.
But Juliet must wed.
Cap: It makes me mad. I will not stand to have
Her say, I will not wed, I cannot love,
I am too young, I pray you pardon me.
Nur: It's all the same in dutch.
You are to blame, my lord, to rate her so.
Cap: And why, my graceful kangaroo? Go to.
Your gossip makes me ill. Be gone!

Nur: I speak no treason.
Cap: Good morning, go.
Nur: May not a poor rat squeak?
Cap: You bet not, in my presence and my wife's.
(Exit Nurse
L. C: Yes, she must wed the count; for much I fear
If this fine chance miscarry, we are like
To have much ado to find another such.
Pet: My lord, that sporty stranger waits with
Cap: The senseless loon; why comes he now?
Well, bid him enter. (Exennt Peter and L. Cap
Cap: Strangers, like all strangers, I bid you wel-
Though I hope you won't stay long.
Ham: Fair gent, I would be stranger here no
Just take a squint at this, a recommend
From one you know, which introduces me
To the illustrious Lord of Capulet.
Who is the biggest Yap I ever saw.
Cap: (reading) By the lost hairs of Ajax, what
Do my blear eyes see?
The Prince of Denmark! Nobby prince, your paw.

Nay, let me rather kneel down at your feet.
Ham: Not so, my lord; hold on; that place is
And I have suit to make, most earnest, pleading.
Cap: Most noble prince, I know just how you feel.
Whate'er you will,
Just tip the wink and I will give it to you.
Ham: Don't be too sure; you know not yet my
I come to ask the dearest thing you own,
Indeed a princely treasure. My suit so long
Pent up hath been in my hot raging bosom,
I'll let it forth. Say, Cap, you have a daughter.
Last night I saw the little peach and flopped
In love at sight. My lord, O kick me not;
I come to ask this priceless gift, O Cap,
Please let me have it at a bargain.
Cap: Why, think you, noble prince, I could say
you nit?
My daughter slinging hash for Denmark's Prince!
Why, 'tis an honor past compare, pray let
Me call my wife. Lady Cap, hie there, missus.

Her hence.
Ham: Say, mamma, can I see the kid?
L. C: No, no! the lazy child sleeps late this morn;
But come at five this aft and take a cup;
Then shall you see our Juliet.
Ham; I will not fail. I'll sleep myself till then
Now maw and paw, goodbye.
Cap: Ta, ta, my boy; we'll peel our eye for five.
Exit Hamlet
Tyb: Uncle, what do I hear? I say 'tis monstrous!
That heartless hind, that vile rat-catcher, that
Base foreign outcast from some savage tribe,
Consorts with Montagues. I've seen him twice
Upon Verona's streets with that sick fool
And mittened renegade, Romeo, and his kinsman,
Silly, simpering Mercushe.
L. C: Why, Tybalt, coz,
He's Denmark's noble Prince and will be king.
Tyb: King? king of cats! I'll have one of his nine
Have after him; where's my rapier? Adieu.
Cap: Tybalt, hold, or I'll send thee to the mayor.

Par: Ah sire, is this the keeping of thy pledge,
Thy oath, thy plighted bond, repeated oft,
To give to me fair Juliet's lily hand?
Alas, alas, my tears shall wash my face;
The foaming Killbuck swift shall bear away
My mortal parts and plunge me in the Bottoms.
Cap: Silly Paris-gree, thy tears will only kill
Potato-bugs: And Tybalt, thou too listen.
That dude you saw just now is truly Prince
of Denmark. Can we miss this chance?
Go to and now congratulate the royal prince.
Par: I see my goose is cooked and so farewell.

To wed our daughter to that milksop, Paris.

SCENE (disclosed): Brilliantly lighted hall in Capulet's house
Guests assembled. HAMLET and JULIET in wedding attire in
background, receiving congratulations. CAPULET,
Lady CAPULET and Lady MONTAGUE in front
Cap: My Lord of Montague, whom I have honored
And Lady whom no less I have esteemed,
'Mong all the jibbering apes tonight assembled,
To grace this happy marriage festival,
Believe me, none more truly welcome are
Than you, so long outcasts from our loathsome
Mon: My worthless Lord of Capulet, the thing
I like the best tonight is merely this,
That our old family scrap is past.
L. M: Hubbie, how started this crazy feud
That has disturbed our sleep for many years?
Mon: How is Sam Hill should I know?
L. M: Mr. Capulet, do you?
Cap: Naught distinct.
Some landsuit, or divorce, or some such thing.
Sec. Cap: Nay, cousin, I know. It started with a
Shot, stolen, tramped on, kicked, I know not what
'Twas a favorite pet with all the other house
And the family resolved to avenge the beast.

L. C: A cur to keep two noble families
Slashing and gashing so in mortal strife!
L. M: The cur is dead and so let be the scrap.
Mer: Tybalt, my fire young buck, the one sad
thing to me about the whole shebang is that I am
like to be deprived of the ineffable satisfaction of
running you through the diaphragm.
Tyb: It'll all come out in the wash.
Come, your hand and crush a cup with me,
Till we can find some common enemy.
HAMLET and JULIET advance
Ham: Juliet, my soul's adored, this is the most
blissful moment of my ambrosial life. I never saw
John Milton Chambers half so happy, e'en when
bringing up that little box of breakfast to his
Jul: O love, I'm happy too: my heart burns with
Emotion as hot and red as glows
The flaming beard on Johnnie's face.
Ham: Is't possible? And yet I love you more
Than Happy loves his pipe; than Smead
Loves Cora Baker; more e'en than Aunty loves
Her measly Preps. I swear my love for thee
O'ertops the wondrous love of sainted Mary
For her little lamb. But, honey dear, my eye
Caught sight just now of a form by yonder door

That takes me back in thought to Denmark
Jul: What can it be, my dear?
Ham: Come hither, boy. What Horatio!
Enter Horatio
Hor: The same, my lord, and your poor servant
Ham: Sir, my good friend, I'll change that name
with you. What make you in Verona?
Hor: I come to fetch you news, my lord.
Ham: Good news? Then the king is dead!
Hor: The king lives, but Ophelia is no more.
Ham: Ophelia dead! Alas, thou art a black mes-
senger, Horatio!
Hor: Not so, my lord; Ophelia is married.
Ham: I pray thee, do not mock me, fellow stu-
Hor: As I do live, my honored lord, 'tis true.
Ham: Married, say you?
Hor: Married to him who sent me hither; a gentle-
man of beastly ways and a vile conceit, a scape-
goat of a noble house here in Verona, one, Romeo
of the House of Montague.
Jul: My dearest love, it cannot, cannot be!
Mer: He imitated Belles to a T.
Ham: So Ophelia is married at last.

Jul: Knew you the lady, Hamlet?
Ham: I should rather snicker. I loved her once
myself; sure proof that I was mad. I think I see
them now.
Hor: O where, my lord?
Ham: In my mind's eye, Horatio.
Hor: I think I saw them this very night.
Ham: Saw who?
Hor: Romeo and Ophelia, my lord.
Ham: Romeo and Ophelia!
Hor: Hold your horses for a little bit. Romeo
caught cold a-sleighing with Ophelia and the court
physician ordered him back to Italy. I am but an
hour their harbinger. E'en now they wait with-
out and crave admittance.
Ham: For cat's sake, bid them enter.
Rom: Thanks, gentle Hamlet, we are already
Ham: Ah, Romeo; heaven bless you, sweet
Ophelia. I always judged you clever, but now ten
times over I admire your wit, since you have
shown it so supreme like me in marrying an Italian.

SCENE: The same as before
Enter all the Senior Class and sing
Class Song, 1901 OF WOOSTER
1901 of Wooster
'Tune: Lauriger Horatius.'
We will sing in praise of thee,
1901 of Wooster;
All our happy days with thee,
1901 of Wooster;
In the College on the hill,
On the campus green and still,
Sing it ever with a will,
1901 of Wooster.
We have joyed to call thee ours,
1901 of Wooster;
Worn thy blue in sun and showers,
1901 of Wooster;
In the class room and the hall
We have listened to thy call.
We have loved thee best of all,
1901 of Wooster.
[Note: Handwritten in pen] W. D. Noyes '00

Quickly sped the fleeting days,
1901 of Wooster;
Winters' snows and flowery Mays,
1901 of Wooster;
Soon, too soon from thee we part,
But still dear to us thou art,
Pride of every loyal heart,
1901 of Wooster.
So we sing this song to thee,
1901 of Wooster;
May thy days be long for thee,
1901 of Wooster;
Faithful now and faithful then,
Wooster's loyal maids and men,
Sing the chorus once again,
1901 of Wooster.
Class Yell
Caxy gowax, gowax, gowax;
Caxy gowax, gowax, gowax!
Hie! ho! hie! ho! Parabaloo!
1901, Wooster U.
