A limo lo build up. Hcol. 111., 11.
The halls of tlio univoraily wore
oviilonlly miulo lo bo used, but not
ia assembly rooms whoro studonts
could moot and gossip and gigglo
and waalo thoir timo. It is a
good joko to talk about "hall work"
and it sounds onto to talk about
it, but tho timo was tod thoro is
vory precious. Tho library con
tains many a book that you will
novor bo ablo to road for lack of
timo. Your "hall work" might
bottor bo spout to good advantago
in tho library. Porhaps, too, your
parents hnvo worked hard to bo
ablo to sond you to school, and
)OU ought lo uso ovcry minuto to
tho host advantago. Whon you
havo learned all thoro is to learn
in tho univorsity, thon mako an
appointniont for "hall work," but
not until thon.

Gossip does vory well for ompty
or ovil minds, but for minds that
aro boing trained for noblo life
work, it is positivoly wicked. It
seems strango thnt such a condi
tion of things could exist in tho
Slato Univorsity. But actually
you cannot walk through tho halls
without hoaring some littlo gos
sip. Some of it is harmless, and
somo of it is dovilish. If wo
could only forgot tho miserable
things wo hoar about people and
tell only the nico things wo
hoar about thorn wo would soon
havo a littlo hoavon. Tho sly
hints that aro thrown out about
people, the evil construction put
on the most innocent actions aro
vilo and uncalled for. "Whon we
get old and tho world has lost its
charms and our brains aro worn
out, then lot us gossip if wo will,
but not while the great beautiful
world lies about us and while
there is so much to do and to learn.
Somo of tho girls complain that
their lunch baskets aro minus
lunches when they go to them at
noon. Wo havo learned and to
our sorrow of tho hat thieves, but
has it come to lunch thieves? It
surety must bo a joke. There are
cortninly not among tho ladies
that attend tho univorsity, ones
that would stoop so low as to pil
for a lunch? 1 f it is done through
a spirit of mischief, it is to say
tho least but a poor waj' to havo
fun. If there aro any one so
hungry that they must do that
way to get enough to eat, God
pity them! Character is more
than education. If we cannot get
an education without stealth let
us give it up. Without character
wc are building an edifice upon
tho shifting sands.
"Woo to thorn that ro down to Egypt
for help. Isaiah XXXI.
It sooms to bo no secret among
the students that they "pony," or
"crib." They seem to think it
is a good joke. It is so much
easier to look on tho book and
write down tho answers, than it is
to think about it. And after all
it is so vory hard for some people
to think. But what good will it
do those students to go through
collogo and "crib" all tho timo?
Thoy will stand high in thoir
olassos and all that, but what roal
atrongth havo thoy gainod? His
tho worst sort of foolishnoss. And
besidos it is stealing. Thoro is
no othor word that fits tho act so
well as this moan word "stealing."
Ladios and gontlemon who would
rosont to tho last degrooworo thoy
called thioves, will novortholoss

Thoy Were Extravagant,
Tho Dramatic club cleared
S1U2.80. That was vory good
and rellects groat credit on tho
management. But the club might
have made 108 ovon, or perhaps
a littlo more just as well as not if
a few of tho membors had been a
littlo more economical. For in
stance, the following item: "Bent
of whiskers for Bonlley." Now,
thon, why does not Bentley grow
his own whiskers? Thoso are
hard times and tho club cannot
alTord to hiro whiskers for any
one. It was really necessary foi
Bob Mauley to rout somo whiskers,
for Bob's don't grow very fast yet
But Bontley has no excuso to of
fer for his actions.
Again, there was an ilom, "Per
ishable freight for Open Gate,"
upon which a few ramarks would
be in order. Such perishable
goods were not necessary for tho
audience to obtain a dcdd effect.
Mr. Tucker was also extrava
gant But then Carl thought he
needed a dress in order to act and
look like a girl in " Chums."
It might bo well . for the Uni
vorsity Dramatic club lo pattern
after other university organiza
tions, as the Glee club for in
stance, and give up these luxuries
during tho hard times at least.
