Thk campus presents a better appearance to-day
titan ever before. It makes us all feel good to hear
the compliments visitors give it. The cloely mown
lawn, and the beautiful flower-beds, arranged in such
tasty designs, add greatly to its looks. It is the first
time our campus has ever been a credit to the high
standing of the university. The Hesperian wel
comes the new improvements in our surroundings
with joy. In so doing, we certainly express the sent

For some unknown reason the attendance of com
pany "A" has not been what we expected. The
members ot the company seem to lack appreciation
of the fact that every absence deranges the order of
the men in ranks. Nearly every day, some of the
men are compelled to drill out of the regular place.
Consequently, the men do not become proficient in
any one thing. The practice of skipping drill must

afford to miss a single drill. We must all, no one

present at every drill, and do his best. Let us drop
everything that will conflict with the interests of the
company. While at drill, let us think of nothing
but the work before us. If we all do our best, no
one need fear the result.
"Have you seen the Sombrero?" was the question
everybody ask everybody else last week. The Som
brero after a sizzle and fizzle exploded in our midst
one day last week, causing great commotion. Com
ing events cast their shadows before them. A few
days before the explosion a notice appeared on the
bulletin board as follows. "Gall for your Sombrero
at The Hesperian office, Friday a. m." At five
o'clock a lonely student tried the door but found
it locked. At six o'clock two persons weresecn look
ing in at the windows of the office and several others
