"THE OLD WHITE ELEPHANT"
Awgwan last week sounded tho
death knoll of military encampment
for all time to como. "And," blandly
asserts Mr. Northrup, "tho great ma
jority of tho students aro glad to boo
it go." "Tho old white elephant" Is
dead and burled, nover again to causo
moro than a "slight rlpplo In Univer
sity dIscuaBlons." So Jt's all over,
petitions or no petitions, favornblo
sentiment or unfavorable sontlmont.
Wo would Hko to feel one-tenth as

Hko to know whoro Mr. Northrup got
his insldo information. How does ho
know it Ib up "for Its death blow?"
Wo had entertained tho foollBh Idea
that In all probability camp would bo

lfoknow that this Is a "lastrieoblotind

tempt would succeed; that tho ele-
pliant would "como back." And how,
wo are most anxloim to find out, does
ho know that tho "great majority of
tho students aro glad to seo it go?"
