It is gratifying to note the appointment of Pro
fessor Barbour to the position of- acting state geolo
gist. A geological survey of the state is desirable.
The university, being at the head of the educational
system of the state, should have charge of the survey.
Professor Barbour is peculiarly fitted for the work:
before him. The university authorities should see
to it that the next legislature creates the office of
state geologist and provides for a state geological
It is currently reported that the reception, given
by the scientific club to Chancellor Snow of the
Kansas University, was disturbed by unnecessary
demonstrations of enthusiasm on the part of a few
thoughtless persons. It was unfortunate and proba
bly could not have been avoided. Too much ram's
pic may have produced an imaginary lit. A recep

There seems to be considerable controversy in
regard to the expediency of the university withdraw
ing from the state oratorical association. It has been
a disputed question ever since the state association
was formed. To be sure, the university orators have
failed four times. Why have they failed? Because
they were not prepared. Our orators have been too

been to write their orations after supper, to commit
them before breakfast, to enter a contest in the even
ing and win the highest honors. They have failed.
Let our orators rid themselves of this abominable idea.
Prepare for future contests, and "stay with her boys".
We desire to call attention to an article in
another column concerning the junior class annual.
It is not onlytoo late; but, considering the enterprise
of the managers, it is entirely unnecessary to offer
advice and suggestions. Those in charge, evidently
know what is necessary, for they are carrying on the
work in a quiet and systematic manner. That they
wiil make a success ol it, there is no doubt. That
is characteristic of the class. That they will receive
the hearty support, financially and otherwise, of all
the students, there is also no doubt. That is
' characteristic of the school,
