NOTE


Some of the people in this book have already appeared in one or two others. "Poler" Stacy was in "Princeton Stories." So was his friend Stehman, a football man; there is a whole story about him this time. Another athletic type, a different sort, named "Deacon" Young—the hard-studying, self-supporting sort—was the hero of a whole book called "The Adventures of a Freshman." Here he appears briefly (in a Broadway window) at a later stage of his career—but still serious; he always will be. Some of the rest may be remembered by those who read the books referred to. Other characters are new.

In the later pages of the volume college life is dealt with from the point of view of an "old" graduate, who thinks he knows all about it. He is somewhat sententious, but he means well. Note how patiently the undergraduate listens. But I wonder what he really thinks.
