much nicer to learn even commonplace
things in colleges. What are lads,
'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
'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'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.
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
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.
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.
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.

Interesting such a book might bo If
