Somehow it becamo noised wound not
long ago that the anniversary of tho birth of
George Washington, tho father of his coun
try, was again at hand. This was quite a
surprise, but upon inquiry it was found that
tho rumor was probably so, although no one
seemed to bo quite sure of it or know much
about it. The Btudents of !N. S. U. know
nothing of it, except as they had learned of.
it individually. There was no executive
bulletin to tho effect that patriotism should
bo instilled into the minds and hearts of the
rising generation at all times and especially
on February 22d, which is tho anniver
sary of tho birth of as great a patriot as over
lived. No formal announcement indicated
to tho tired and anxious would-be patriot
that classes would not meet on this legal
holiday. Our great and glorious country
was forgotten, and its greatest leader ignored
in the great swirl of work that must bo con
tinually carried on in order to build up this
grand country that George won for us. No
matter about the past! Do not stop to think
of that! We are under an ethical obligation
and the end must be attained as quickly
as pofisible, even though we exile from
our memory those persons who made
it possible for us to enjoy the great benefits
that are continually coming to us from the
hands of a bountiful creator. Some prepa
rations might have been made for the cele
bration of Washington's birthday hod it
not been for the factthot tho University had
a birthdoy of its own only tho week before,
ond two birthday celebrations in so short a
time would certainly have resulted in an
abandonment of the University because of
so little time devoted to actuol work. It
