Through the courtesy of Mrs.

are enabled to publish a letter re
cently received by this lady from
a nephew she has who is attend
ing Stanford University.1 The
letter is written in entertaining
vein and the ' writer shows him
self to be a keen observer, as the
following will prove:
I was half delighted and sur
prised to receive your welcome
letter, surprised . in that "you
can' t al ways tell what you least ex

exultation of one who - has not

college Stanford is, and its beau
tiful surroundings. I guess I
have made no mistake in my
selection of a college. The
buildings and the grounds are
something magnificient and I
have heard that $30,000,000 has
been spent ou the University.

was certainly an event in my
career, un that date the annual
football game between Stanford
and Berkeley was played, and
this is the biggest athletic event
of the Pacific coast. The details
of the game were nothing as
compared with the rooting of the
students and the admirers of the
two colleges. The game was
played on Stanford's new field on
the campus just in front of En
cina Hall. The field seats 15,000
and every place was taken. The
patrons xwere about - equally di
vided, one side of the field being
a varigated mass of blue and gold
while the other side was a mass
of cardinal, Stanford's color,
Each college has a' trained root
ing section of 80O students. For
Stanford every rooter wore a
red hat and had a red megaphone.
Then in middle of the section a
white S fifty feet high was formed
by some c-f the feUows putting on
white hats and caps. At the
bottom of the section was the
Stanford band where the music
was played. The whole 800 root
ers waved their megaphones
back and forth keeping time and
making one glaring sea or car
dinal. Then when the team
came on the field each fellow
oroduceda bag of red confetti
and scattered it In the air, pro
ducing, it is said, one of the
most novel effects ever seen in
college rootine. At the same
time someone liberated 6 doves,
each with a streamer of cardinal
ribbon.. They flew first to the
Bertelev side then to Stanford's
side: and finally across Berkeley?s
goal line. ,,The' mea - was cer
