complaint among those from whom
tho ponnlty was oxneted. Those stu

claiming that sufficient publicity had

able them to loarn of It. They do
clare that tho collection of tho fee
under, theso conditions was an In
justice to thorn.
But whethor tho foo was a just ono

The rule was made with tho idea
of expediting registration and tho
figures for tho first two days of the
assigned poriod show that it accom
plished that end. it was not arbi

that seemed to bo the best way to
assume tho success of tho plan.
Notice of the oxtra feo was glvon
in tho schedule of classes last spring
and this fall and was printed in tho
catalog of this year. That was ex
pected to bo sufficient warning but It
was not, and thero Is tho flaw In tho
order, which really glveB tho penal
ized students causo for complaint.
Thero should have been wider and
xnoro general publicity given to tho
Many upper classmen did not read
the bulletins last spring and wont
' ajray from tho university totally Ig
norant of the threo dollar ordor.
Sohlo of them returned last week
after Wednesday to face a three
dollar ponaljy for failure to register
on .the first two days, The older
students should hardly bo expected
to, read aji that Is printed, on a
.. Bcneauio or classes. Most of them
kndw what studies tlioy want to tike'
ilk peed lb consult tho schedules
otfjy, jto find at .whdl tioursthelr work
Ooi&M., Few of them either, In re-
forrlng to tho catalog, are likely to
boo now rules.
It, however, was realized that tho
feo would work an lnjustlco iri caBOB,
and whero a satisfactory ocusc was
glvoh by a student, tolling why fie
did not register In tho allotted period,
ho vv'Kb ref eased from paying the J3.
This hardly romoved the grievance
of all against tho rule, for there are
Borne students who are too timid or
faint-hearted to approach tho chan
cellor on n subject In wnfch they have
to ask for a confession. Such "Was
tho case with ono junior. Mo started
to rogiBtor on Wednosday afternoon
and wnB given a number, but the
doors clOBod before his turn camo
at the desk. Tho noxt morning ho
entered the lino but tho fact that he
had a number from tho provlous day
did not enable the assistants in the
registrar's office to excuse him, and
he pnid his feo of $3. He did not
have tho "nerve" to explain his case
to Chancollor Andrews and went away
from tho building complnlnlng against
tho Injustice of the system.
It is not denied that the new rule
1b a good one, for it is and ought
to be onforcod in future registrations,
but Hiifnclent warning should be given
the students. A little notice will
probably be sufficient In the future.
It seoms to bo a hard task for fra
ternities to obey the rushing rules.
That $3 fee would buy a fair Stet
son hat or two good seats at a show.
It Is not tho cost of registering that
flattens the pocket book; it's buying
books that does the crimping.

"Thy Will Be Done." Following this
Mrs. A. W. Roth, formerly In North
field Seminary and at present a mem
ber of tho state committee of Colora
do, spoke upon the subject, "Why
Study the Bible?" She first pointed
out that bible BtuJy 1b necessary be
cause the bible is God's Word and
contains tho foundation of the Chris
tian religion a religion which is uni
que Inasmuchc 'as It Is not only for
tho Anglo-Saxon race, but for all na
tions. Mrs. Roth Bpoke further of the
influence of bible study upon the char
acter of tho student and pointed out
the great men whose lives had been
guided and Bweetoned by scripture
study. She then ended with the plea
that the glrlB of the university Inter
est themselves In bible study.
An enrollment was taken of those
desiring to enter any of the bible
