The Class of 1902 avoided last year’s debacle, when they had rudely interrupted the consecration of the sophomore’s class tree—a necessary preliminary to the “knighting” of the class.  While this year’s freshmen slept, ’02 arose at 4 am, gathered around am elm between Strong and Main and “softly gave the class cheer,” according to The New York Times.  As members of their “sister class,” ’00, also softly cheered, ’02 headed for the gymnasium for the “knighting” ceremony.
