SERENADING A THING OF THE
With the annual homecoming came
the resurrection of the time honored
college pastimes, among ;vhich sere
nading ranks the foremost A year
ago University officials placed a ban
on such amusements, declaring them
obsolete and unfitting to the dignity
of the University students.
An Instance of the violation of the
rules was recently brought to our
attention following the Notre Dame
game. At this time the city was
filled with great numbers of old grads
who felt that they were called upon
to revive their old friendships with
the customs of older days. It is quite
plain to all broad-minded readers,
that serenading outside the proper
hours is looked upon with disgust
and scorn by the general "public. And
since this edict has gone out the
student body has foregone any such
displays of vocal talent.
It will he well to keep in mind
that any breach of this understanding
instituted by the misiriforned alumni,
will not constitute permission to
engage in further revival of this
and hope of making a success after
they have completed their education.
White haired veterans of the books
are seen daily on the campus and
they should receive due credit for the
ambitions which, in spite of their
years, they have retained. Not long
ago a woman entered an eastern col
lege at the age of sixty years and,
while she was a Freshman In the
college, had ambitions of a greater
future. Her comment upon her entry
was that "you are never to old to
learn." The idea that education stops
at the ase of twenty-two is erroneous.
To the sorrow of many it has been
found out that one may still learn a
lew things after becomlngsof age and
it is the regret of numbers that they
did not take advantage of their oppor
tunities. Opportunity knocks but
once and If it is turned away It can
never be found again. Therefore the
man who turns down a chance to ac
quire a college education while he is
still young and, for that matter, even
though he be up in years, is making
a mistake that can never to corrected.
