The class in journalism under Mr. W. O.
Jones, of the Daily State Journal, and Pro
fessor Adams, of the department of English,
bids fair to be very popular among those
who have any inclination for newspaper
work. It lias been started with the view of
gathering more University news and distrib
uting it more effectively throughout the
state. Members of the class are assigned
special subjects to write up, which, if worthy,
will be sent out to the state papers. Mr.
Jones, who is an alumnus of the University,
as managing editor of the Journal, His ex
perience will tend to make all work of a
practical nature. Credit is given the mem
bers of this class for regular theme work in
any year above the freshman. We thank
Mr. Jones for his interest in our behalf.
It i3 not our privilege to attend chapel
regularly, but when we are allowed to escape
from the class room in time to get a seat, we
like to spend the ten minutes undisturbed,
under the "droppings of the sanctuary." It
is not right that the moral truths which some
of us have no other chance of receiving,
should be kept from striking home by the
noisy conduct of those who have assimilated
so many, that more are unnecessary. Young
ladies and gentlemen who attend chapel to
converse are regarded with much respect by
their companions, who sit mute while the
services are being conducted. It is gener
ally understood that they belong to the elect
who are as good as they ever will get. We
poor sinners, who hope to follow their exam
ple in the future, beg, however, that the
elect will not blot out our future happiness
by a too audible enjoyment of tho riches of
grace they have already received.
We learn that some of the Profs, are
"looking out" for us because of some re
marks we made on various departments in a
recent issue. We are sorry to hear this, be
cause we fear we will have to give the profs
a good deal of ocular exercise during the
year if they take all our remarks to heart.
A college paper must have its fling at the
departments. If this institution were run
on plans and directions delivered verbatim
by Gabriel himself, it would still be our
happy privilege, our sacred duty to kick,
