cussing some of the most important questions of the day, two

companion, our wort'' y business manager, was bravely expos
milling with the above mentioned villians. While he was
earnestly pleading with them in the most gentle terms, trying
to perstiade them of theii folly in holding up a poor, strapped'
university student. One of them actuall placed a danger

searched lor valuables. After a prolonged search, the viltian
fun lly found a niekle. After further search, he found an
old Waterbury watch. Our pale,, and. trembling busincs
manager was then allowed to go on his way rejoicing. It is
said that every freshman now carries , two knives and a
revolver. ' ,' 1 . 1 ; -''
