There is a strong feeling prevalent in
tho University that the Junior Annual
next year should be free from even
the suggestion of any of the objectlon
ablo foatures nttached to It In past
years. It is felt that It Is time to turn
over a new leaf and expel fiom our
University all the dishonest methods
that have been Instrumental In lining
foiije individual's pockets and In mak
ing past books a complete failure. The
stu'onts of the University deserve and
denu.nd returns at least commensurate
with their Investment. They feel that
acm- acknowledgement ought to be
macic In the form of definite returns
for '.heir loyalty in supporting the book
and giving liberally to making It a succ
ess. We view with iihamc the showings
lmde by the institutions about us,
where fair methods prevail, 'which com
pel us to admit the Inferiority of our
Junior class book to theirs, By such
Institutions as Minnesota, Michigan and
Wisconsin, although they are larger
schools that we, we are, even relative
ly hnnelesslv outclassed. Tho mere
fnct that the chief places on the staff
of the Junior class book are a bono of
contention among thoso who would
Fiilnert tho interests of the University
to tholr own. marks a degeneracy In
class politics that calls loudly for re
form. We would not see a hardship Im
posed upon anyone to whom Is en
trusted tho charge of getting out this
book, but there is certainly need for
the exercise of a certain amount of re
straint withholding them from abusing
their position for their own gain. In
fnct the past points out an object les
Bon. No man who has over betrayed
his trust and obligation to tho Univer
sity by denying it its due to benefit
himself, has profited. He may have
gained financially, but ho has lost in
the respect and esteem of his fellow
students. But be this as It may, there
are others willing to follow jn the same
path, Influenced by the same Incentive,
and it Is against such as -these that
precautions should be taken.
;i( you ever hear of the t-.ge of the
foreign legations and the missionaries
In the city of Pekln during the Boxer
uirii-ing in 1900? Do you want to know
how they were relieved? If you do, at
tend convocation on Wednesday of this
week. A graphic account of this re
lief expedition and tho capture of the
city or l'ekln will be given by General
Daggett, a retired ofTlcer of our regular
m my, who Uuk an active part In this
memorable and unique campaign. The
wiitiT has had the privilege of hearing
tlil.s tlnilling story and at his request
it will he upented for the benefit of
tho studenth. Let no one miss it. When
hf- lolls liOiV the American -scaled the
walls of the ancient city it sounds like
a romance fiom the time of Julius Cae
sar. When he tells how a mere hand
full of An, cleans on the toi of thit
wall, with nothing save their rifles, si-'
leueed a lattery of Chinese artillery,
you will 'inci.rstand as never before,
nerhnpr1, the superiority of western civ
ilization oor this most ancient civili
zation c! iho east. As ho tells of the
leading l.art aken by the Americans
Ihioughmtt the entire expedition you
will feel an l-onest pride in your fel
low countrymen. And when he tells
hrvv and why the Americans were or
dered to rctieat when they, alone and
unaiuc-'l by th. lr allies, had fought their
way almos-t to the "Holy of Holies," of
the Inner city, you will realize some
thing of the diluciltles that were en
countered by the American command
er during this unique campaign.

The members of tho botanical staff
have been examining several collections
of classes from different parts of the
state, with the aid of Professor Hitch-
Co much for tho principle of tho ; cock, a specialist in grasses from
thing. Wo would rather point out what
can bo done than forbode as to what
may be done. Upon those vho will
have charge of getting out the Junior
Annual a great responsibility rests.
They will have within their power the
'ability to give the University a book
worthy of the name and to- establish
a name for themselves, without fore
going a reasonable remuneration for
their services. Will t,hey bo true to
their trust or will they add another
chapter to the shameful record of the
past? That will be the question con-
Washington. The result has heon. to
make several important corrections in
the determination of species.
