Corks and Curls

First published in 1888, the student yearbook's original name is often misunderstood by today's student to mean "wine and women." However, the title is taken straight from the vernacular of the late 19th century: "The student who flagrantly failed to reply correctly to the questions of his professor in the classroom was said to have been 'corked' . . . if he answered with a grand flourish of pertinent information, he was said to have 'curled.'"
