If the change can be conveniently made, we

The Scientific Club is to be congratulated for
securing Professor Snow to deliver a lecture on

perian Association should be changed so that the
editorial staff may be elected at the beginning of the
fall term instead of at the beginning of the' winter
term. This proposed change may not be approved

that it is for the best interests of The Hesperian
that such a change should be made. According to
the present method there are, practically, two editorial
boards initiated each year, one at the beginning of
the year, the other at the beginning of the fall tenn.
