Tho recent action of the board of re
gents In dismissing Dr. Wolfe, has cnused
a breach between the executlvo powers
and the students which tlmo only can fill.
Dr. Wolfe Is ono of tho moit popular
professors In tho university, and the fact
that ho 13 an nlumnua of this Institution
Increases his popularity greatly. No ono
hesitates to say that tho students ncted
unwisely and hastily Thursday. They
were Justified to some extent, however,
and tho loyalty of tho student body to
their professors and the university, can
not be questioned. Prom their stand
point, they see only a great loss to the
university. To them tho "Interests of
harmony" do not appeal. They have seen
nothing of the conduct of the professor
which would lead them to believe that
his relations with other members of the
faculty were so unpleasant as to over
balance tho good of his educational Influ
ence among tho student. If the regents
and chancellor havo decided that It was
for tho good of tho university that the
action was taken, there Is nothing to do
but wait and seo If tlmo will bear them
out. Tho university suffers from the
loss of ono of Its great men, but If the
university has greater Interests at stake,
Xtio' action of the' board of regents was
Tho necessity of having a uniform
method of Inspecting high schools of the
state Is apparent upon every hand. Since
tho governor vetoed tho bill, which was
designed to attain that end, :t :s Incum
bent upon the university authorities to
devise somo commendable plan to take
its place. Heretofore, different members
of the facul.y havo takon a portion of
tholr tlmo In examining tho schools ap
plying for the accredited l.st. And con
sequently, m'nor matters havo been over
looked nnd Irregularity prevails In the
stnndunl of admission to the first college
year. Tho efficiency of the high schools
should be looked after wl.h care and ef
forts should be made to Improve them
whorever weak. Thero are many schools
yet to bo added to tho accredited list. And
tho time that is required as well as the
work certainly deserves some one who Is
specially employed for that puipoee. He
could give ilmely assistance In raising the
high school standard and assuring the
university that only the competent und
well prepared graduates would lie recom
mended to college Htandlng. This matter
concerns our standard of scholarship anj
appeals to all those Interested In thorough
educational work. Do not lmjioso upon
members of tho faculty, work to which
somo one should devote his entire time and
slight recognition, especially In n Hold
which has so recently beon developed.
With such marked advance who can soy
that a proper distribution of tho funds
will not enable tho professors to fulfil'
their highest ambltton In building up their
AT EL CAIHTAN.
Thoro has been no show this year Hint
was so universally attemled by collogo
students as was El Capltan on Wednes
day cvonlng. In tho dress ulrclo there
woro a number of theatro parties com
posed of collcgo people, tho balcony hntl
a few moro whllo the gallery was met
aphorically speaking, a howling cam
pus. Up In this elevated roost (that was
evidently built by a man who wns an
adopt in packing sardines) thero wns n
wild lmtlenH mob representing tho lmtnl
llon, tho ball team, tho minstrel troupe
nnd tho glee club. This noble collection
Is what Is known as Davvy's band, and
Is headed by the aforementioned vcrsatllfv
youth who can be olthor tho prettiest
girl In a minstrel show or the laziest ser
geant in tho bnttallon at n hnlf hour's
notice. Short Lehnhoff wns up there too,
having stepped up from the parquet to
ovado tho rush at the door. Ho grew
wildly enthusiastic over Edna Wallaco
Hopper and snld that it he only had bis
shoulder straps on he would call on her
between tho acts.
It would havo hard to tell what the
opera would have been without Davvy's
Hoodlum syndicate nnd the unl. band.
Thero Is one part In the opera where a
brass band, composed principally of cor
nets nnd slide trombones, nnd bass
drums appear. Llttlo Midget Crook was
In the baud with a long loose tunic and
a broad hat that covered his eyes and
ears. Ho came on tho stngo tripping over
his gown and trying to blow the keys oft
his horn. "Jlggs',' Dnvls played a slide
trombono as If ho nevor expected to do
another thing nil his life. Every once In
a whllo he would get delirious and poke
out the slide of his old Instrument till
It Jabbed a chorus singer In tho back. Ho
nnrrowly escaped two or three mix-ups.
'At the end of the second act there was
a free-for-all contest between tho chorus
nnd tho band to see which could make
tho most nolso. Tho band didn't do a
thing to tho chorus, but rush them so
fast that they couldn't pronounce tin
words. The manager was so displeased
by tho unfair ndvantago taken by our
excitable band that he refused to pny
them for their services but Jlggs Davis
sat down on his horn at the stage en
trance and swore ho wouldn't go until
ho was properly remunerated. About hnlf
past twelve tho manager paid him hi
fifteen cents and let him go so that the
theatre might bo locked.
Throughout the play the crowd was
kept In admirable order by Davvy and
his popular lieutenant, Slansky, and at
the end of the piny aftor they hnd all
Indulged In a piece of prune plo anda seed
cake nt Don's, the mob was quietly dispersed.
Merit and efficiency always win recogni
tion. They In truth, speak for themselves.
But wo venture however, to say h word
concerning the remarkablo growth and
prollolenoy of tho department of philoso
phy. It Is a typical example of the pro
gross that is being made in somo of the
depar.monts. The work Is practically elec
tive, yot thoro Is, Includ.ng the department
of pedagogy, an enrollment of over three
hundred and thirty students. It is certain
ly a remarkable showing, especially in
such abstract studios . philosophy and
psychology. No ono takes those subjects
for snaps. In 189 tho department was est
ablished with an enrollment of only four
teen students. Since then, under the wise
and efficient supervision of Professor
Wolfe, the department has renched Its
present standard of popularity among uni
versity students and tho educators of this
state. The fac; that the work Is practic
ally olectlve, shows that such a largo en
rollment speaks well for tho department
and cortalnly shows the estimation In
which It Is held, The laboratory facili
ties rank nmong tho best In the world,
holding about fourth place. It Is through
our experimental psychology that edu
ctors nnd other universities have been lol
to acknowledge tho thoroughness of our
GHADUATKS STUDENTS MEET.
A scoro of people connected with tho
graduate school of tho stato university
met Tuesday night In Dr. Wolfe's lect
ure room In library hall.
Tho suggestion of Joining tho national
federation of graduate clubs was brought
up for brief discussion. Those present
favored the Idea and on motion of Pro
fessor H. C. Peterson tho president was
Instructed to appoint a committee of five
who should bo empowered to Investigate
and act. Dean Edgren and Dr. Ward
were appointed from the faculty. The
remaining three, to bo from the graduates,
will be chosen later.
. Deiui Edgien propobtfd tho following
amendments to tho constitution relative
to tho time of meeting and election of
ofllcers: "The club shull meet roguLirly
twice a year on the first Saturday of
November and Mny." All olllcors shall
bo elected at tho May meeting." The
aim was changed to read: "It shall be
the object of the pupers reud nt the meet
ing of tho club to present In comparative
ly technical form a brief resume of somo
scientific topic und preferably one Illus
trating moro recent advances In tho sci
All these amendments were unanimously
incorporated In the constitution.
The regular program opened with nn
Interesting paper on the library school at
Albany by Miss Edna Bullock. Tho re
quirements of entrance and tho dally life
of the student when entered were pleas

which must bo answered were given to
Illustrate the breadth of knowledge that

Professor Peterson talked about the
spirit of scholarship in tho university and
guvo reasons that had occurred to him
why the scholarship was not so thorough
as It might be. Ho thought that a ten-
