There are about eighty copies of the Somhrero
subscribed for and not yet taken. It is absolutely
necessary that all these should be taken. Each de
linquent should make it a point as well as a matter of
honor to take the full number for which he has sub
scribed. The business managers have been unable
to meet their obligations, let alone receiving anything
for their trouble. This should be attended to at
To the new students The Hesperian wishes to
give a few words of advice. In the first place do
not put yourself forward. It is always better to re

have had years of experience to take the initiative.
If you have any admirable qualities or peculiar char

into which students of wealth only are asked to come.
That is the only requisite. If you have lots of money
uid wear good clot lies you will make a first-class
.at. If iii have lots of money to .spend; jf you are
