A Kansas college press association was re
cently formed at Topeka. Eleven college
papers were represented. The objects of the
association are to advance journalism in the
higher institutions of learning, and to bring
about a more harmonious feeling between
the colleges of the state. There is as much
room for harmony in Kansas as in any state
we know of, therefore we congratulate our
brother editors in that field, and sincerely
hope Nebraska college editors will follow

The University of Pennsylvania Courier
has this to say of the recent bowl fight there :
"The Sophomores and Freshmen appeared,
at 1,30, on opposite sides of the field, deter
mined, if necessary, to die in support of their
class. The fight was fast and furious, clothes
were torn in a heart-rending manner, and
more than one pugilistic student was divested
of his garments in a manner which would
have brought blushes to his cheeks, had he
been anywhere else at the time. The Sophs
failing to put the bowlman in the bowl, r.nd
the Freshmen failing to demolish the bowl,
the fight was declared a draw."

In order to secure the advantage of hori
zontal bar work by a whole class at once,
Mr. Bowon is using the innovation of two
bars of Swedish pattern, twenty feet long,
susdended by ropes. The bars can be de
tached and the ropes are in place for travel
ing rings, although the rings cannot be pur
chased just now.
The students in this department will give
two exhibitions early in April the ladies
and the men's classes appearing on separate
evenings. Admission will be by ticket, and
limited to the number of seats that can be
placed in the gymnasium without interfering
with class work. Besides the class drills
given there will be various athletic contests,
open to the students of the University. The
latter feature is always attractive, and ought
to bring out considerable new talent and be
gin the preparation for field day contests.
