The Nassau Herald, a commencement publication at Princeton edited by the seniors, gave the results of a poll taken of the graduating class.  Longfellow was the favorite poet, and Walter Scott slipped by Thackeray, Kipling and Dickens among the novelists.  The class had 185 Republicans, 30 Democrats, 7 Gold Democrats and 7 Prohibitionists, and, as to women’s colleges, the class favored Vassar (67 votes) over Smith (51), Wellesley (43) and Bryn Mawr (39).     The New York Times
