Are the seniors preparing to surprise the school
with some startling innovation in the commencement
exercises?
SCIENTIFIC CLUB.
The various college and class yells that will be
given at the state contest will be an attraction which
if not the principal one will be none the less inter
esting. The students that desire to hear a "dull sick
ening thud," should attend chapel the day Chan
cellor Bessey "comes down" on the noisy crowd
that congregates in the rear of that room.

Scarcely a week passes but that there ,:vs some
need of a song that could strictly be called a univer
sity song. If we are going to adopt all the airs that
a school of our standing entitles us to, why not have
some that we can sing as well as put on.
The very gratifying announcement has been
made that the course of lectures started two years
ago is to be resumed. The lectures will be on sub
jects that are of interest to every one, especially
students. They will be delivered on Thursday after
noon of each week, and while they are primarily for
students the public is cordially invited. Dr. King
sley will deliver the first three lectures giving a
thorough and complete discussion of all the phases
of heredity.
The reformers that are clamoring for the election
of the United States senators by the people direct,
have had their stock of argument greatly increased
by the questionable actions of several of the state
legislatures this winter. The controversy of the
legality of the action of the Idaho legislature in
electing four senatorc, brought out the fact that there
is quite a number in the senate that favor such a
change. The long and tiresome contest in Illinois
where three members of the legislature will probably
dictate the selection of tne next senator from that
state, together with the charges of bribery and fraud
that have been made against the newly elected sen
ators from Oregon and South Dakota, will have much
influence in hastening the change of public sentiment
to favor such u, reform. When public sentiment
changes, some reform will have to be made that will
clear the senate of the charge of fcgyism and of
being the "American house of lords."
