Smoking at University functions Is
r.( meth lug that should be dlscountcn
antet' It Is not essential to anyone's
plen&ute upon such occasions, and is in
fait a nuisance and ontlroly out of
place. Complaints are made ot the
i n aW in e of the practice at the Senior
Pre. ni , and wo hoan expressions of
dlhgun regarding it We do not select
t'ie Senior Prom, as a glaring example,
lor It is but one instance among otheis
All of our University functions aie con
i. ii( led on a comparatively high plane,
and tho elimination of smoking at
tiiebe would make a step of improve
ment. The whole case rests with the
men themselves, and their action will
bo received with appioxal If they txer

Tomorrow the Rhodes Scholarship
examinations begin, and we trust thnt
eery student In the University has
had the matter brought prominently
before his attention. Kveiy effort pos
sible has been made to adwitlse these
i xamlnatlons. Thore will be no diffi
culty at all In getting entered. All that
is expected of any candidate is to
how up tomorrow at the place of ex
amination, armed with a fountain pen.
No ono need bo timorous about enter
ing, as the examination Is merely a
qtiaHlying one, so oven if he has not
bad tlnio for a thorough review of the
branches ho desires to ho examined in.
he still has a show of Buccess. Viewed
lrom a certain standpoint, the prize
held out Is very desirable, aml'nuy stu
den having tho qualifications, who de
sires tho kind' of training that is of
fered, will not be acting amiss by
showing up for tho examinations.
The merging of the three debating
clubs Into ono organization should bo
productive of good results. If a com
plete unification of all the Interests of
each individual body were thus effect
ed, then, there could be no doubt of
the success of the now organization.
But it Is not unlikely UuU there has
been Some- waste, as this might be ex
pected, and must bo taken into consid
eration. However, ono largo and com
pact organization has better chances
for success than three-smaller bodies,
each having an independent claim.
Three Interests working In harmony
ought to yield better results than jach
ono striving independent to preserve
an entity of its own. We hope that the
new organization will succeed In
arousing additional enthusiasm in de
bating; for the training that Is given
is lost upon no ono inditing a consci
entious effort to profit by It. It has
plenty of room to work In and we hope
to see eacji member working enthusi
astically in its Interests.
Heady made orations and essas can
be fccured at reasonable rates from
eastern parties, who evidently find that
their profession yields sufficient returns
to enable them to subsist. Yankee in
genuity has been responsible for so
many innovations that a person no
langer Is hururlfcd when some one of a
unique and astounding nature is sud
denly sprung. Hut tho idea of a syndi
cate being organized, no matter how
limited Its membership may be, for tho
purpose of supplying orations and es
says as articles of merchandise natural
ly leads one to wonder as to what can
come next. Wo can not help but
think that if a student is so far com
pelled by lack of mental equipment as
to look to others for assistance, that
there Is absolutely no excuse for pla
giarism when a reasonably good article
can be secured at a moderate rate. At
least we think that It would be ruin
ous economy for him to risk his stand
ing and reputation when a small out
lay would preclude the necessity of
I)i Fletcher L. Wharton, who hah
just resigned the pastoiate of the St
Paul's M. B church, o f this citv. gave
a farewell address to University men
Sunday afternoon in the chapel. He
spoke on "The Possibilities of Young
Men of Today." Two special poinls
v.cio brought out in his talk, namely
The call of the Christian college man
to build up civilization in the Orient,
and the call of the Christian voting
man to his home town to better his
former associates A large crowd

prominent among University men for
