P. G. Suekey was toastmaster. Toasts were responded to by Professor Calvin Thomas, who gave a short resume of the history of the University and showed how it had been founded in the backwoods fifty years ago on the distinctively Germán idea of a university. Dr. Finkier responded to the toast, "Germán Universities." Professor V. C. Vaughan responded to something about those dreadful bacilli. He told of what Germán investigation had done for medical science. Dr. Lichtenfelt spoke on Germán students in a witty manner.
