COMFORTING REFLECTIONS OF A NONENTITY.
I cannot bonst of learning deep,
Nor can I much to art nspirc;
My poetry loses me no iileep,
Nor oratory's burning fire.
I do not row upon the crew,
Nor on til eleven glory win;
I am not of the chosen few
Who sing and play the mandolin.
I am not any social star,
But then within my certain knowledge,
Like me, unknown to fame there are
Sotqe fifteen hundred men in college. Ex.
The University of Wisconsin has abolished
examinations. Happy students. Ex.
The 4th Annual Gymnasium Exhibition at
Buchtel College took place Monday, March
20. The exhibition was a very creditable
one and a great success.
The Palo Alto of March 13th gives an in
teresting sketch of Prof. Warner, lately
called to the chair of Political Science at Ice
land Stanford Jr. from the time he graduated
from the U. of N. till the present.
The Faculty of Lake Forest University
have decided to require commencement ora
tions from the seniors. It seems to be a
heavy blow to the class. They are taking it
philosophically, however, and are preparing
for a scrap over commencement honors.
All persons who subscribed for copies of the
Hawkey e are requested to call at the book
stores and get them immediately. They will
thus save the Business Manager the trouble
of distributing the books.

Annuals are beginning to come out, and
many of our exchanges contain notices like the
nbove. Some are half pleading, some half
threatening. They remind us of similar no
tices last year in the Lasso and Hesperian.
May the Business Managers of all college
annuals rest in peace !
As we have withdrawn from the State Col-
legiate Athletic association, there will be- .
nothing but the local field day for our ath-v
letics this year. Therefore we should take'
particular pains to make it a success.
The usual scrap over the foot-ball man
agership is on, war has been declared, and
the distant echo of the approaching battle
causes the faint-hearted to tremble. There
are two aspirants for the position, both are
good men and each will make a good fight.
May the best man win.
Our tennis players have been rather in
active during the winter and the court in the
gymnasium has been used but little. It is
to be hoped that interest in this branch of
athletics will revive with the coming of good
weather. With splendid out-door courts so
near at hand, the tennis season should prove
As the time draws near for out-door ath
letics, the question arises as to whether or
not we are to have a boating crew this year.
If the athletic interests of N. S. U. are to be
furthered, nothing could do it better than a
good crew. We have plenty of good men.
that are anxious to try for the positions, and ,
our boating facilities are as good as anVv,.
in the west. Let us act in this matter
once, if at all.
The base ball manager is endeavoring to
make arrangements for a game with the
Kansas University, to be played at Kansas
City, and it is probable that he will succeed.
If he fails to do this he will arrange for a
trip which will include Kansas University,
Baker, and Washburn College. This will
make a nice trip for the team and, needless
to say, they will meet worthy foemen. Let
us hope that the boys will have better luck ..,
than they did on their last trip south.
