This is the time of year that the average under
graduate in the various schools, begins to think of
what his or her class may do to distinguish itself, but
in this institution few of the plans that result from
these thoughts are ever carried into effect. None
but the graduating classes have ever attempted the
plan of holding Class Day exercises, while the lower
classmen content themselves with giving an occa
sional class social, and an annual class program in
the various societies. Although a common one in
the older institutions there is one plan that has never
been attempted in ours, and that is the publishing of
a class annual. Where they are published regularly,
they form an interesting history of the institutions
from which they are published, and usually they
possess considerable literary merit. Of course, this
is a scheme that involves considerable expense, but
by taking advantage of any of the devices for raising
money that are employed in other schools, the
expense may be met. The Hesperian makes this as
a suggestion, and while it is intended for any class, it
is made with special reference to the incoming

may be held. At a recent meeting of the association,
a committee was appointed to confer with the faculty,
and get them to endorse the scheme of laying aside a

the right direction, and one that is made a neces
sity by the growing interest in athletic matters.
The organization of an mter-collegiute base ball
league, together with the numerous foot bail contests
makes it necessary for us to have a park under our
own control. Heretofore, we have always used the
city "ball park for such contests, but the expense, and
the uncertainty of getting it when wanted proves n
source of inconvenience. As to the location, it has
been proposed to lay out the park in the south-west
corner of the farm. This is the most preferable site,
