The senior class have been recently treated to a
splenclid sample of fraternal love. In the contest for
class president the lines were drawn in such a way
that it looked very much as if the class would have a
fraternity man for president for the spring term. In
fact, the place was offered to a certain member of one
of the fraternities, who might have been elected
without any trouble. Then comes forward a brother
fraternity man with another candidate, assigning as a
reason that he would not under any circumstances
support his brother who was mentioned first. As
a consequence neither was elected. Personal spite
and aggrandisement was stronger than the bonds of
fraternity. Oh consistency thou art indeed a jewel.
When, oh when, brother frat will you cease to preach
and prate about holy ties, etc., etc.
Steps have been taken to form an inter-collegiate
barbarian association. It is needless to say that this
meets our most hearty approval. Our association
should without fail become a charter member. We
would suggest that an inter-state convention be held
for the purpose of perfecting a permanent organisation
and of adopting a constitution. While plans are
being,discussed and perfected, we would suggest that
our own association agitate the question and do their
part towards realizing this, our long wished for plan.
We can do a hundredfold more for the cause of bar
barianism by organizing and building up a strong
inter-collegiate association, than by carryintr on a
fruitless and undignified warfare against fraternities.
Our own association is too loosely organized. There
is not that pride and loyalty and enthusiasm so man
ifest in our literary societies. This is all on account
of slackness in organization. Let us have an inttr
society organization with working committees, the
chairmen of which shall constitute the executive com
mittee of the association. There is-an abundance of
work for these committees to do right now. If
ingenious they would find many other things to do
not thought of now. The Palladians have made a
commendable start. What society will be next to
fall in line? Some one give us a barbarian yell, a
regular stem-winder, let the college bard construct us
a sung on the same plan, let us have all the para
phernalia of college organizations, and enthusiasm
will not be lacking
