Tiikhk was tlio snnio old sornp
about tho distribution of sonts nt
tho Lansing for Ohnrtt '-day night.
No mattor what system is adopted
thoro uro always thoso who wish
it somo othor way. Evory con
eoivablo plan has boon tried, al
ways with tho samo result: fault
finding and genoral complaint.
"When tho older citizens, who had
stood by tho University for years
when it needed frionds, wore
givou rosorvod soats, then tho stu
dents as a body declared that it
was first and foremost a students'
day, and that thoy should have
tho precedence. "When thoy woro
givou precedence, and an at
tempt was made to recognize them
by classes, thou tho lower classes
held indignation meetings because
their tickets placed thorn in tho
gnllory. When tho plan of re
serving soats was abandoned, and
all woro given an equal chance at
all sittings, the cry wont up that
it was mighty poor management
that compelled people to go a
half hour in advanco in order to
get a decent seat. This year it
was the seniors who declined to
recognize that this is day of gen
eral rejoicing, and for all students
alike; and hold meetings to estab
lish tho fact that they wore mis
treated because they wore expected
to get in line with tho othor stu
dents when tickets wore dealt
The simple fact is that the stu
dents of tho University, each hold
ing a single sitting, will just fill
tho Lansing gallery and all.
"When tho Legislature must be
(properly) shown somo little
courtesy, and tho State Officers
are cared for, and the clergy who
officiate in chapel during the year
have been granted this slight rec
ognition for their gratuitous and
very acceptable services ; there re
main for the faculty and students
just about one thousand soats for
sixteen hundred persons It is
impossible to determine in ad
vance who will be present and who
will not, and so the only safe and
equitable plan seems to be to is
sue tickets at a given hour as far
as the tickets would go, and let
the rest take chances when the
doors are thrown open to the
There is a woeful lack of com
mon honor and decency in the
way in which students treat each
other at such times. It would
seem that natural courtesy should
demand that the young women
have the first chance, but at the
distribution youug men crowd
young women aside without the
sligheBt compunction. In addi
tion, when it is well known that
thoro ia but ono tiokot for oaoh
student, and really not that, mon
crowd into lino a second timo and
ovon a third timo, and bonst that
thoy have thus ohoatod a olaBS
nuito or a oollego-mato out of Ins
or hor ohanco for a sitting. It ia
high timo that thoro was a keonor
aonso of honor than this; and that
if thoro is not, thoso who boliovo
in bottor things should simply
sond dirootly to Oovoniry tho fol
lows who thus outrago all sonso of
common fairnoss aud deoonoy.
Certainly all must pity tho
management; which sustains tho
firo of oitizons, faculty, and stu
donls to say nothing about tho
gonoral burdons of tho day.
Tiik recont looat oratorical con
tost provod conclusively tho do-
olino of enthusiasm for theao con
tosts on tho part of studouts in
general. Sovoral yoars ago thoso
contests woro eagerly looked for
ward to and tho chapol was always
crowded. Tho intorost was in
tense while awaiting tho an
nouncement of tho decision of tho
judges, tho studouts fairly "raised
tho roof and yolls and songs
without number woro lot looso.
Within tho past fow years this
enthusiasm has died out. Tho
audiences have become smaller
and tho yells fower until this
year not ovon the lower portion
of tho chapol was filled. Scarcely
enough money was taken in to
pay for tho prize of tho second
orator. While awaiting tho de
cision but very few yolls were to
be hoard and thoy woro started bv
tho fow alumni who chanced to
be present. But very few seemed
to oaro about tho outcome. In fnot
it was a very "tamo" affair. Tho
orations woro good but tho audi
onco lacked that intorost noooB
sary to mako an oratorical uon
