interest to many students, especially to those who have any
idea of becoming teachers; lor to that class it is especially
vnlimble, keeping as it docs, before its readers the best
thought of the day relative to school work. Students will
find this journal in the reading room.
By the by, what has become of that redoubtable assistant
of The Hesperian, the Eccritean. We have never seen nor
heard of it since its furious onslaught on all that was in any
way connected with the University of Nebraska. We enjoyed
the fun but fear the Eecritean didn't. But one little set
back should not discourage so doughty a "corker." If it can
do nothing else it should resume its old name and begin again.
We'll give it puff.
It is interesting to note that in nearly every exchange we
receive there ai t indications that college spirit is rife. Every
where but here the students seem to have the correct idea
that there is something more in college life than mere study
ing. Not studying makes the true college man entirely but
a general interest in college affaire and politics and enter
prise. It is high time that the students here began to wake
up to this fact and become like other college men.
The University" Argus is again at hand and with a new
ex. man, a verdant chap in college politics, we imagine, or
else he would not have the audacity to disregard the custom
oi his immediate predecessor so rashly. This new man even
dares to speak somewhat disrespectfully, or at least slightly,
of fraternities. It surprises us much alter our tilt with his
predecessor, but perhaps a slight change has happened at
Missouri State University. It was needed. There is one
thing more in the Argus we want to notice. It is the follow
ing sentence, which is something of a literary curiosity in its
way. "As we launch our ship afloat on the billow waves of
a short literary career we feel that we arc likely to run ashore
or be overwhelmed by the tumultuous tide." The figure
used in that sentence is worth preserving for a ''freak" at
The DcPamo Adz for September presents a fine appear
ance and good matter. Whatever else the Adz may or may
not do, it never hesitates Id spenk its mind in regard to its
own university matters. Accordingly, in this issue it respect
fully says that one piofcssor who had just resigned was tooold to
keep up with the advancement of the university rnd a younger
man with more life and enterprise was needed. It is, indeed,
refreshing to come across something so outspoken among so
many closely guarded utterances in which the writers seem to
fear that they will make some feel the force of what they arc
saying. The Adz, moreover, speaks its mind calmly and in
good spirit concerning the prospect of a rival in the line at
Del'auw. Whether, if the new paper should become a real
ity, the Adz would continue in the same strain remains to be
seen. We fear it would not; yet its present promises are
College Review heartily agrees with all that Hesierian
said in the late unpleasantness in oratorical circles but does
not think that we are "right in attributing the lack of oratory
to fraternities." It then proceeds to ask what, at first sight
may seem to be a poser. It asks, "Is the oratory in colleges
with open literary societies more flourishing than that where
the fraternities reign supreme?" Without entering into any
extended discussion of this question it is well to note that
there is no standard cet by which wc may judge of the con
dition of oratory whether it be flourishing or not, nor yet any
extended and classified knowledge of the doings in an ora
torical way in the colleges of the United States. Further
more outside circumstances and efforts must be considered in
accounting for special activity in oratorical lines. In conclu
sion wc would simply call attention to the prize winners and
to the gentleman who was so liberally applauded by the audi
ence, the gentleman from Iowa, in the inter-state contest last
year. All were "barbs."
