strange to say we did not fuel greatly complimented; nnd ii
is only when vc arc asked point blank, that we will plead
guilty to the chnrge of having received n hid, It is really
nothing to be proud of. We have known baiharians who
were Really insulted and deeply mortified because ol having
hcen thought fit candidates for .in aggregation of pin-wearing
snobs. Since the llreltytw desires to know, and innocently
woudcis why our best men do not join fraternities, we will
speak candidly. In this institution, the fiatcrnilics have
ically no inducement to offer to good men. In college
politics, their plaintive wail is entirely inaudible; in the class
loom, their record does not shed sufficient lustre to attract
men to their ranks; on their literary work, wc must refrain
Irom passing too severe judgement; because, having seen
none of it, wc know nothing ol its excellence. Hut we sup
pi'Sc that we may be pardoned for suggesting that since they
Inve no organ to represent them, since work in a literary
society is so very disagreeable to them that they have an
nually oiganized a society only that it should die an annual
death, since they have yet to compete for oratorical honors,
diey .ue not dangerously literarily inclined. Yes there aie
licic, as in every college, a few meek, timid, low cut vested
fellows., who live that people may look at them, who know
nothing of college enthusiasm, who would fiy fioni a class
wai as fioni a pestilensc, who are going through college, not
on ni-cunut of any ambition of their own, but because they
ate sent; and we suppose that after all it is probably a bless
ing that the fraternities should furnish an asylum where such
clliiws will be cared for.
3j I'' 1 1' were not for the excitement caused by the
T annual Hbsperian election, affairs would be
exceedingly tame at the University. This, the great
event of every year, completely overshadows every
thing else. Lessons are neglected, the sessions o
the legislature are no longer visited by our students,
and confusion reigns in the halls. However, we do
not desire to say anything against such political
excitement. If conducted in an honorable and
upright manner, political contests result in much
good. They teach students to value and appreciate
the abilities of each other, and to have due regard
for the opinions of those who honestly differ from
THE COLUMMA CYCLE CALENDAR.
Hy far the most valuable business calendar for 1891 is the
Columbia Cycle Calendar and stand, issued by the Tope
Mfg. Co., of Uoston, Mass. It is in the form of a pat!
containing 366 leaves, each leal having on it a date, day of
wek, day of year, nnd number ol days to come, a par
ngnph pertaining to cycling or some kindred subject. The
hacs ate fastened only on the end, so that each cnlli
leaf can be exposed. The stand is made of stained wood,
''ass mounted, with pencil holder and pen rack. Although
Ids is the sixth year of the calendar, the matter is fresh
and new, the larger number ol paragraphs having been
specially wiitten for this purpose.
