Our mothers know noth ing of these things; beside s it Is so much nicer to learn even commonplace things in colleges. What are lads, anyway? '1 he new hymnals for which the 1 eg eiiU, made an appropriation at their last meeting were used for tho first time in chapol laat Monday morning. They are the tame style of book6 as the old ones with the excpiion of the rtbponsive readings, which will now become a part of the regular chapel exercises. 'this is a commendable innovation as U gives all a chance to take part in the service which is much more in teresting than striving in vain to hear what some weak voiced professor 1b reading. There is also another Impor tant advantage. To those who insist on talking during chapel it gives an opportunity to talk to thtir heart s content and at the same time offer? a chance to say something an oppor tunity which unfortunuttly has not ex isted heretofore. A rather unexpected disadvantage in the new order of ex ercises Bhowed itself last Tufsday morning in the responsive reading When the students came to tlie nam Ephrathah," there was an awkwar pause, evoiybody waiting for Iiib ue gh bor to prouounoe it A few au.mt.u.'u it and stumbleu through and finally a suppressed glgglo went over tho whole room. It might bo a good Idea for tho students to study tho responsive readings a day or two In advance so as to mnko euro of pronouncing some of the unpronounceable proper tinmen which thoy aro llablo to encounter. A CRITICISM ON PROP. BATES. The following extract from the Wis consin Sentinel will bo found of Inter est to tho BtudontB wliu had tho pleas ure of an acquaintance with Prof. Bates, formerly at tho head of the English department In this Unlvershy: Mr. Herbert Bates, a young and promising writer of verso, mnkes In the current number ot tho Cluiphook a rather unfortunate metrical experi ment. Ills poem Is put Into tho mouth of one of the parlies to a duel, while the duel Is going on. Here Is one stanza: Crafty, with treacherous kiss, how Tempt her to lecherous bliss! Thou Whom 1 have sought but for this, how Now. for thine hour Is fast. This may be meant for an onomn lopoetlc representation of sword play, but It sounds more like the noise made by a small boy when ho drnws u stick sharply along n picket fence. A Ml'DHY DRILL. Those who have never experienced the delights of drilling on a slippery, muddy day. should have belonged to tho Second battalion last Monday af ternoon. The campus was not very sof. but It had a thin layer of mud on It. just enough to make l appear firm and safe until the hapless victim stepped In It. Then he slid a few yard, threw hlo feet up in the ulr. in a sort of an agonized way. all the time making vain endeavors to regain his equilibrium. But he would finally succumb to the Inevitable and comfort himself nftor drill hour by wiping the mud off his new uniform. The mud grew less as tho drill con tinued, although It could hardly be said to have dried up on account of the hot drill put up by the hattlion. There were various other reasons, tho man on the pivot while marking time, always managed to churn up a con siderable amount of mud under his trousers. Some of the officers also helped the good work along. Adustant Lyon scraped the mud off a few spots himself. He unsuspectingly struck a slippery place and was soon engaged In some antics which looked as though he were trying to kick off his hat. However, he felt that to be a rather undignified position for a man of his rank and station and after several frantic efTorts managed to land right side up. Sergeant Major Jim Fechet did not fare so well. He was going at double time to post the guides and looked very nice until he struck a wire which had iteen stretched along the campus to keep back the crowds at the football games. Jim went up in the air a few yards, but he was so anxious to reach earth again that when he did land, he embraced it from head to foot. He finally picked up his dignity, his cap and a considerable amount of mud and continued his Interrupted march leav ing a large dry spot behind him. Major White slipped around the campus like a girl on hkates for the first time. Every time a cadet would got stuck in the mud. Boh would help him out by yelling at him to "pay at tention there." As a fitting close to the drill each cadet swore softly to himself and ap plied a few endearing ipithets to the commanding officer whom they lu-id responsible for the state of affairs. It is thought that with two or three more drills on he campus the mud will all disappear. ATHLETIC ANNUAL POSSIBILI TIES. The movement which has been on foot to publish an Athletic Annual hai now assumed tangible form and is a lively possibility If not a probability Prof. Hastings has boen working up the matter and his suggestions have met with universal approval by all 10 whom he has broached the suLject. There is no good reason why well an annual at the cost of twenty-five or fifty cents should not succeed It is thought that by personal canvassing 250 or 800 copies could be subscribed for in order to guarantee the success of the enterprise. Prof. Hastings has outlined a plan something like this for the contents of the book which will give a general idea of the scope and possibilities of such a publication. First cones the football season with a record of all the footlwJl games. At the saint occur the Freshman-Sophomore field day. The next division of tlie book eould be devoted to basket ball which eould be dlvldfd into four sections treating of the inter-class series, the outside sanies, the rnivrsity championship oerieg and tbt jirls outside games.
