Another commencement has come and gone.
Another large class has received diplomas and will
begin the battle of life. Some will succeed, others
will not. , But who will say they are not better pre
pared for the duties of life than they were four or six
years ago? Who will say that the time was not well
spent? But, while commencement calls up such
thoughts as these it also suggests a certain sameness
that have characterized all other commencements.
The class-day now takes the place of commencement
day and the same objections may be made to class
day orations and essays that were made to com
mencement orations and essays. While the class
this year was wise in the choice of persons to repre
sent them on cla-s program there is no probability
that future classes will always be satisfied with the
members chosen to represent them. The University
of Kansas this year dispensed with the usual orations
and essays and gave an interesting drama instead.
By so doing every member of the class was given
something to do. We throw this out as a hint to
the class of '93. There is no doubt that something
of this kind will be a great improvement on the very
best class day programs as now given by the great
majority of graduating classes.
Wiikn this issue reaches our readers, our duties
as editor of The Hesperian will be over. In part
ing from you we cannot forebear inflicting a little
advice for next year. Let us first of all urge upon
you the advisability of electing your whole board of
editors for the year at tie beginning of the (all term.
Anyone that lias served you as an editor will at
once see the wisdom of this change. If you elect
your editor-in-chief next fall for one semester, he will
just get fairly well started in his work when he must
lay it aside and a new man step in his place. The
new man must go on with the same business manager
and an entirely new and inexperienced set of associ
ates. The result is that the paper cannot possibly
be made the best or have any consistent polu dur
ii.g the year. 'J he next school jear will be divided
into two par's. No better time will be found in
which to make 1 he change than mxtar. Sun
