'Talking about college spirit," re
marked an upper classman, "It seems
to me that the smaller Institutions aro
still able- to give us a few pointers at
least in regard to supporting the de
bates. After a fellow has deprived
himself of his sleep, skipped meals, and
got all his profs down oh him for miss
ing classes, In order to got time to de
vote to his argument, how much Is he
appreciated? Only a handful of the
faithful gather, and all his eloquence,
finely drawn points, and carefully knit
arguments are largely wasted on empty
seats. But take it in one of these scrub
colleges, when a debate is scheduled,
the whole outfit from the head cheese
down Is set buzzing. " In this debate
out at Wesleyan Friday night, it was
enough to make a fellow feel ashamed
to see the kind of Biipport the debaters
out there got, in comparison with the
kind our debaters receive here. Morn
over In Iowa with only 400 mem-
from over in Iowa with only 400 mem
bers, Bent a delegation of fifty, headed
by its president, to support Its repre
sentatives. Those fifty rooters with
their leather lungs and startling yell
certainly made themselves heard. Sucn
support as this counts amazingly, and
nothing is more inspiring to a de
bater than to know that he has a
strong body of supporters behind him
who want him to win and will do all
they Can to help him do it. But when
ever an interstate debate is held here,
even the band can't drum up a crowd.
We certainly ought to feel ashamed
to allow the Intellectual side of college
life to be dwarfed by other Interests.
At all events we ought not to allow
ourselves to be outdone In this respect
by any minor college."
"I've always envied the 'frat' girls
and boys their good fortune," recently
mourned a young lady barb of accepta
ble looks and agreeable manners, "and
I've always looked forward to the time
when I might be allowed the privilege
of attending one of their social gather
ings and coming into profitable contact
with their good breeding and ability.
The opportunity was afforded me the
other night, through the kindness of a
sorority friend, and I'm still wondering
whether It Is my fault or theirs that
I feel so disappointed. I was the odd
one in a group of four girls, all of
whom stand high in the Unl 400, and of
course I knew nothing of the "inside
doings" of their organization. Now
what do you suppose they did? Why,
they 'talked shop' all evening hew
this girl, that boy, this sorority eventJ
and that frat entertainment had fallen
heir to their good, bad, or indifferent
opinions. -I was so utterly a "rank
outsider" that I had the hardest kind
of time keeping my nerves from com
pelling me to snatch my wraps and run
away. Do I impress you as being so
utterly a nobody that I deserve being
absolutely Ignored? Or is It possible
that sorority girls aren't all so much
better bred than we poor barbs, In
spite of our assumption to that effect?
Anyhow, I've quit worshipping at the
shrine "of the fraternity and sorority
folks since my experience of that even
ing. I don't believe they are so awful
ly much bettor than the rest of us, aft,er
The Janitor looked up In surprise as
the freshman addressed him. ''Please,
sir," said the youth, ('could you' tell me
something about how the compus
looked twenty or twenty-five years
ago? I'm hunting material for au
English theme and I'd lie much obliged

to you if you'd help mo out." Tho
Janitor thought. He hadn't been con
nected with tho University quite that
long and he about decided to send the
boy on his way. But tho Innocence of
the youth In thinking that ho was one
of the nppurtences that went with the
University when it was built tickled
him and he concluded to help him out.
"Well," he said, "I havn't any distinct
recollection of what tho campus did
look like In those days, except that
It was covered with pumpkin vines.
Yes, sir, pumpkin vines!" he exclaimed,
noting the freshman's wild look of sur
prise. I never saw anything grow like
those things did. I remember when 1
planted them. For a couple of weeks
there were Just a few dry-looking
plants here and there, a Btrugglln' for
existence against the drouth. Then
one night there came a tremendous
rain. Next mornln' I was awakened by
a number of agonized Bqueals of some
animal in mortal terror. I rushed out,
and one of the most wonderful sights I
ever saw met my gaze. There was tho
whole campus covered with a livin',
movln' mass of green. Great long
toiTdrilB with leaves dodgln' up In their
wake, like a row of foot-lights being
lighted, were gliding about like green
serpents and tho vines were tumblln'
aronnd and jumpln' over each other
like boys playin' leap-frog. Yes, sir,
It was those blamed pumpkin vines a
growin'. And the squealin'? Why,
way off in an open space was a little
shoat a runnln' for dear life, and those
pesky pumpkin vines were a followln'
right at his heels. Helpless to aid
him, I Just stood and watched, and
you bet I folt sorry for the poor little
cuss. He made a gallant run, but thoso
pesky vines caught the little fellow
by the heels, laid him low, and finally
strangled him. Did they ever stop
growin'? Yes, they they finally got to
travelin' so fast that they pulled up
their roots, and of course that did for
them." The freshman was leaning up
against the wall for support, and It
wns some time before he recovered suf
ficiently to move on.
