We correct a statement made in yes
terday's editorial to the effect that n
lady's formal gown cost $15 We are
reliably informed by those who have
bought that the average cost is near
er $150 Not having purchased any,
we can be held to no more than rhet
orical exactness ill stating the market'
HOW WE CAN DO IT.
It IS useless, we an' told, tm us
to warn people that tlie sliouM live'
within their means without showing
them in a practical wa how the can
live within theii means II oui ie
marks on extra agance, sa oui cut
ics, were less the remarks of an agita
tor and more the remarks or a shrewd
business man the University commun
ity in its present sad tinanclal plight
would bo much better advised and di
rected. While we doubt the willing
nesB of our critics to come forth open
ly with their "practical" views on the
question of economy, yet we adopt as
our own a suggestion which 1b good in
itself by offering a few definite and
practical roformR In our accustomed
way of running a University dance
First, Induce the Regents to per
mit us to use the armory for a dance
by showing them that we propose to
submit to official regulation of our
Second Refloor and lehaul the
armory until it is tit for a dance at I
a cost of no moie than a thousand
Third Instead of appointing ten,
men to a dance committee that can t
keep one man bus ten das, appoint i
one man to manage the whole dance i
Most ot the people we have usually1
got to he chairman o! a dame haw
contented themselves with a remun
eration of live romps worth approxi
mately ten dollars. These men tell
us they would gladly dispense with
a committee, which is more a hin-j
drence than a help, and run the whole!
dance themselves for twenty-five dol
lars Such a plan pays the chairman
for his actual services, eliminates the
committee gratt, and fixes responsi
bility for going in the hole directly
where it belongs.
Fourth. Issue few complimentary
tickets. Take the dance out of politics.
Elect or have appointed your dance
chairman, bo that no unofficial "boss"
is entitled, as he was this year, to five
free tickets for naming the chairman
and appointing the committees. Do
ing away with the ttSftftfttfoe Sine
cures does away with their comps. In
short the very slightest change in pub
lic sentiment should reduce the lorty
six tiee tickets issued to fellows who
could pay to go to the Cotillion any
how, to less than ten Business prin
ciples having nothing to do with this
economy What we need is a higher
standard of University citizenship,
a standard that stands pat against cor
ruption and gratt in every form
These are onh a lew ot the simple
and piactical suggestions anyone
might make when called upon by one
who can alford to pa tor dances at
their piesenl price to come lortli with
business lather than moral principles
Metween us and our critics the onh
issue seems to be who shall
Freshmen as well as older students
will receive a hearty welcome, com to
