Thursday morning Professor Lawrence
Fossler delivered the last number of the
series of chapel lectures that havo been
given during the year by members of the
faculty. The professor chose "Ibsen," tho
Norwegian poet and reformer for the
subject of his tolk. He did well in tak
ing a themo ot supreme Interest to all
students and one in -which he is highly
Interested. Professor Fossler Is a very
uble critic and rovleweiwia all who have
taken German under him know. Tho
hardy Norwegian with his bold prophetic
voice reminds the German professor of
his own countryman, Goethe. He also
likened him to Dante. Ho made analysis
of "A Doll's House," "An Enemy of the
People," and "Brand." Although Ibsen
Is a pessimist, the professor showed tho
fearful earnestness of the mun, his In
tense humanity and his high Ideals. The
motto of Brand, "All or nothing," and
the quotation, "The majority is never
right," (from An Enemy of the People)
show the peculiar strength and daring
or tno author. Professor Fossler asked
each student to read somo of Ibsen's
works and to Judge for himself of tho
correctness of his conclusions and the
worth of his lessons.
Tho class ot '37 has been meeting this
week. Wednesday thoy met to do somo
business nnd Thursday they met to undo
It. For somo tlmo there has been moro
or less dissatisfaction expressed with tho
committee which has In chnrgo tho senior
play, and Wednesday n meeting was held
for the purposo of hearing tho kicks. Mk
Manley, chairman of tho committee, was
there and gave his report as to tho na
ture of tho play and the stage to which
It had progressed. Then tho fun began.
Somo Inquisitive senior Inquired if Mr.
Mnnley's report was he report of tho
majority of tho committee. Mr. Manley
replied that two members of the com
mltteo had been at work with him and
that far It was a report of tho com
mittee. After various remarks which
went to show thnt some people had come
to tho meeting with knives to use on
Mr. Manley, the whole matter of the play I
was referred to a commltteo of three,
which was to report at 1 o'clock Thurs
day. After disposing of the play tho class
passed resolutions requesting that the
latin form used last year In the presenta
tion of diplomas be omitted this year,
nnd a committee "was appointed to make
tho action known to tho chancellor. Tho
chancellor enmo In and addressed the
class. Inviting them to a reception to be
given by the chancellor and Mrs. Mac
Lean to the seniors and members ot tho
university senate. The invitation was ac
cepted. Thursday at 1 o'clock tho class met to
hear tho report of tho committee on class
play. This committee recommended that
the play be recommitted to the original
committee, with Instructions thnt It pro
ceed to work. If this was not the senior
class people might wonder nt their ac
tions, but seniors nro like Chinamen
their ways are "peculiar." Other com
mittees were called upon for reports, but
did not seem to have anything to say.
The class then passed a unnnlmous vote
of censure upon all senior committees.
Someone suggested thnt the class had
better resolve Itself Into a committee of
the wholo In order to get a censure
where It belonged, but It did not go.
