We supposed that there was to be no cane rush
this year. In fact, we are of that opinion still; but,
judging from the bold red notice recently posted on
the bulletin board, there must be blood in the eyes
of the freshies that cannot be easily washed out.
What is the matter with '94? Have they sent their
The lecture on "The Russian Political Exile" by
George Kennan was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone
who was so forunate as to hear it. Mr. Kennan is
an interesting and attractive speaker. He possesses
what may be called true oratory. His vast exper
ience furnished him with an inexhaustive supply of
material. He was not flowery, but eloquent. His
lecture contained interesting anecdotes, narrative
description, feeling, pathos, emotion, in such propor
tions as to hold the entire attention of his bearers.
His lecture was a fitting tribute to the cause he is labor
ing to promote. The Palladian society is to be
congratulated for securing such a notable personage
to open a series of lectures they intend to give, and
for the business like manner in which they carried
out all arrangements.

It is nearly time to begin to arouse interest in the
oratorical association. It will be necessary to hold
the contest early in February, and the event, is a very
pertinent one. There should be more contestants
than there were last year, or any previous year- for
that matter. All orators of fame within the univer
sity, and those who would win renown and do service
to the university are urged to prepare their manu
scripts at once. There is no reason why the univers
ity may not win the state contest. It must win. It is
to be supposed that the contestants have written their
orations before this time, but judging from the past,
we doubt it. The idea that two or three weeks is suf
ficient time to make all preparations for such a con
test is wrong. Experience, and costly experience at
that, has proven this, and it is time that we should
realize iL . The university has not won oratorical
