not prohibit then, If for no other rea

Someone says that so long as there
is no othor place for tho students to
congregate it would bo too bad to
drive them out of tho one place where
they can get together and visit The
campus isn't a place to visit. It is de

TjuBltfesa and if a student haBn't got
any work to do he ought to spend his
time some place where he don't inter-,
rupt others who dort't get their work'
done so quickly.

found, is an excellent, habit which too
many students never form, But using
