Wo never like to say anything about
ourselves, because the less frequently
wo do so the better. But wo would
llko a few long letters from alumni of
this Institution, In order that wo might
publish them In our alumni column.
Wo have Bpokon of this matter before
and havo received good returns, and
thus wo are encouraged to speak of It
again. Anyono having a letter from
a friend who formerly attended school
hero, a lottor that contains Informa
tion about the country and surround
ings, etc., can obligo us greatly by
allowing us tho uso of It. Wo hopo
that those who havo Buch letters may
bo cognizant of tho good uso to which
they may bo put and wo would llko to
hear from them.
There aro few of us who do not
know that Wisconsin will play hero
tonight, but there aro probably some
who havo not made up their mind to
como out. Tho athletic association
has a deficit remaining from tho foot
ball season. It stands conspicuously
forth and remarkably unimpaired.
Now this game with Wisconsin ought
to yield BUfllciont returns to help dis
turb this outstanding total a trifle.
Of course, It has generally beon the
custom that our other branches of
athletics havo been helped out through
the surplus remaining at tho end of the
football season. ' But thoro Is now no
such surplus, but a' deficit. Tho order
of things having beon reversed In one
Instance, why not rovorse It In an
other? Why not make basket-ball not
only pay for Itself, but help out toward
lessoning tho total of tho doflclt? It
can be dono If wo look at tho matter
In the truo light and como and support
the game. Tho Inducement for to
night Is certainly a good one, and Is
not bo lightly regarded. This game
with Wisconsin ought to bring out the
crowd, as it probably will, and wo hopo
tho size may at least bo determined by
all tho available accommodations -in
A comparison between college jour
nalism in the east and the west re
veals some lntoreBtlflg facts, which
aro not altogether In tho favor of tho
former, as many might suppose. In
weekly and monthly publications the
east is considerably advanced over the
west; as some of their productions
come closo to tho magazine standard.
In fact, tho literary features of the
.eastern publications seem to surpass
those of their western rivals. But In
other respects the west greatly excels.
The dally and. weokly newspapers of
all the eastern Institutions show a
stereotyped similarity of matter and
make-up. Very little Improvement
seems to be made by the successive
managements that come and go, and
tho monotonous sameness continues
unbroken. In most of these papers
tho first page is given up to nowB
matter and often a very acceptable
showing Is made there. But tho other
thrco pages aro largely given up :o
advertising and reading notices, with
a mere sprinkling of Hvo matter. But
In western institutions we find a
marked difference. Thcro tho news
matter in tho paper preponderates
over tho advertising matter and read
ing notices. More conscientious effort
Is made for improvement and more
concern seems to bo shown by tho
editors in keeping tho news service of
tho paper up to a high standard. And
if anything, In western papers the edi
tors como nearor tho practical In nows
papor businesB. In both east and west
collego newspapers havo had an ovon
start, but It certainly does seem as
If tho west Is forging ahead.
Mr. J. W. .Androws, who has tho

How Can I Keep Up with
the Times ?
IT is pretty hard to keep well informed on the
political news, the scientific news, the literary
news, the educational movements, the great
business developments, .he hundreds of interesting
and valuable articles in the hundreds of excellent
magazines. ' About the only way it can be done by
the average busy man and woman is to read a
magazine like " The Review of Reviews," and, as
it is the only magazine of the sort, it is a good
thing to send $2.50 for a year's subscription.
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT says:
" I know that through its columns views have been pre
sented to me that I could not otherwise have had access to ;
because all earnest and thoughtful men. no matter how widely
their ideas diverge, are given free utterance in its columns." .
EX-PRESIDENT GROVER CLEVELAND says:
I consider it a very valuable addition to my library."
