Apropos of the latest sensation in Univer
sity circles the Uksi'kkiax has a few words
to say. It is apparent to all who have read
the paper, that wo have this year said less on
the "frat-barV question than has boon said
before, anytime during the last four or five
years. "We pursued this umind-our-own-business''
course for two reasons. First,
we believe that many students arc tired of
the stereotyped arguments used in every
"frat-barb" war, and, second, we feel that
we can add nothing new or original to what
has already been said. We feel that few
converts will be made to the barb side by
our denouncing fraternities as aggregations
of soft brained individuals, whose chief ob
ject in existing is to look nice, pose before
one another and the world as blue-blooded
aristocrats, and thank God they are not as
other people. If, on the other hand, frater
nity papers can pursuado anyone that the
barbs are only aggregations of semi-oivili.ed
roncgrades mentally, morally and financially,
at the same time artfully conveying the im
pression that the only way to salvation either
temporal or eternal, lies in joining a frater
nity, well and good. We are content to let
thorn. Those who are converted to either
side by such arguments will not materially
docroase the strength of the side they leave,
nor incroaso that of tho side to which thoy
go. In short, tho JIkspkhian has rested, on
fls oars, preferring to lot the "frat-bnrb"
question settle itself. &
Thoro is now in circulation a very healthy
rumor, backed by circumstantial evidence of
a very convincing character, that we will
soon bo afflicted with two new fraternities.
