Peace Settled Down Again After
After a day and a half of wild ex
clteynent tho calmer views and judg
ment of the students are beginning to
assert themselves. The history of
Thursday Is remarkable in many re
spects, because of tho scope of the
activities of both aides and tie large
number of students that wore Impli
cated. So suddenly and forcibly did it
all break forth that it seemed like a
volcanic eruption and students
will have a Btring or stirring events
to romember as long as they retain
recollections of their college days. Now
that it is past, wo can review tho sit
uation soberly, without being subject
to impulsive influences felt when the
. events were actually taking place.

"iVyiitt of view can not bo commended,
the kidnappings were carried out with
much clevernesB, although this is about
all that Ib good that can be said about
thorn. Complete surprlso was the key
note of the success with which they
were carried out. None of the victims
had any Idea of evil designs against
them, until they were captured nnd
While such occurrences are becoming
less frequent fn all colleges and the
spirit prevailing in them is generally
to be condemned, yet there was a com
paratively little destruction of prop
erty, when we tako into consideration
the large number of students involved.
The asaanlt on tho door of Walsh hall
resulted in some destruction of prop
erty, but the leader of the Sophomore
murfv hnn voluntarily offered to make
kood the loss to the owner of the
building. Such a spirit as this is a re
deeming feature ot the affair, how
evei much in the wrong the assailants
mav have been.

One thing, however, is to be depre
cated 'and severely condemned. Thut
was the throwing of eggs In connec
tion with tho party at the hall. We an
glad that only a few of these were
thrown, but are sorry that some struck
home. A number thrown through the
opon window smashed upou the floor
and spattered shoes and dresses pro
miscuously. Such an act as throwing
eggs especially upon such occasions as
this is offensive, as a needless wasie
and injury is inflicted. It Is one thing
l to Impulsively ruBh In and take your
l chances' In a rough and tumble scrap.
Iflp purely from motives of college spirit
P and onthuslaam, and another to stand
at a distance and throw eggs, in hopes
of Inconveniencing someone else.
There JsTa point of Uonoi here that
practically all college students recog
nize, and wc are sorry that there are
any exceptions" at all.
Tho demonstration at the hall was
not made by the University students
alone. Sgme of the rough element of
the town was there, as they love to
mix in student affairs of this kind a
" thing that Invariably results In the dis
advantage of the University.
Aside from the many anuoyances,
the Freshman party was a flno success.
Except for tho few that were way
layed and HWnnnpetf. upne of those
who attended experienced any diffi
culty In coming or going.
Dancing was indulged in. and nianj
were entertained by various kinds of
games. All those expecting to take
art in tho play were present, but ow
ning to tho fact that the voice of one
of the leading characters had col
lapsed, It was declared off. The de
baters were present, but no debate
A design that is not generally known
came close to being perpetrated, and

number of venturesome Bplrlts sought

design failed was not their fault, al
though for a while the Freshmen were
really in danger of having their lights
The Freshmen aro manifeting sor
row because of the destruction of their
capr. The blow came to them entirely
unexpected, and they did not even have
an opportunity to try to save them. Tho
Sophomore conspirators telephoned to
,H. I.. Palne's to send the caps to a
certain fraternity house, which wns
dene. All that was left for the Hopht
to do was to take the caps and hunt up
some tar. and make for the University
campus. They made a roaring hot
fire in Uip street south of the campus,
and the caps wore soon in n est. A
