Excerpt from The College Greetings, Vol. 18: November, 1914

This is a picture that was taken just before the train pulled out. Why is that girl talking so earnestly to the brakeman? Because the train was nearly ready to leave and a sack with something inside that looked like a jug which might have contained gasoline was still reposing beside of the station. Was it put on? No, as we pulled out everyone's eyes were fastened on that as if by men tal power they might be able to bring it with them, for we were wondering how we could cook for twenty-nine.

That? Oh, that's the station at Lake Matanzas. All those trunks and suit-cases? Why, you know that it might have been cold and we all had to take plenty to keep us warm. Yes, it was all piled into that one wagon. Of course it took some figuring to do it, but after the man was shown once it was all that was necessary.

The next picture was taken along the road going to Lake Matanzas. On the edge of the picture is pasted what is known as a Matanzas sandburr, a special variety, with extra long stickers. They account for all the queer posi tions shown in the picture.

This is the Oak Lodge cottage. No doubt it doesn't look as if it could hold twenty-nine people, but it did for everything but sleeping. The other cottage is the Doug las cottage, where nine people stayed who didn't mind being kept awake at nights.
