When tho former managing editor laid
aside her pen last yoar she loft us as a legacy
a column of advice. Wo road it at the time
and remarked that it was all true; wo think
so yet. Soon after tho publication, however,
a friend said: "You don't receive much en
couragement for your next year's work, do
you? You will loose all of your former
friends. " Tho last statement sounded some
what startling at first, as wo prizo our friends
a good deal. But, at tho time our only ex
pedient was to fall back on Balzac's philos
ophy: "Do not bo afraid of making ene
mies, woe to him who has none!" We
finally settled tho question by dociding that
anyone who has dabbled in University poli
tics for three years and then is able to make
more onomios by working on TnE Hes
perian, is a genius.
But, jbo this as it may, as wo launch out
upon another year and confront tho trials
and difficulties that must be overcome, wo
can look back with pride to tho past record
of The Hesperian. It has travelled a long
and prosperous course and to-day is an essen
tial part of tho University. It has reached
that point which is tho ambition of all pro
grossivo newspapers, it has been threatened
to bo sued for libel. The Hesperian is a

fullest, latest and best news around tho
Tho editors fully realize that thoy have a
difficult task to perform; that their work will
furnish some of the choicest gossip in the
school ; but wo can bear it. Pilo it on, and
when it gets too high, bo charitable and
come to our aid. We shall have some miss
understandings, though wo may strive to
please. But "wo'll know each other bettor
when tho mists have cleared away."
Our motto for the coming yoar is "Be
sure you are right and then go ahoad." If
wo think it is right o keep still, wo will
keep still; but if wo think it is right to i
speak, yell, whoop or start a cyclone wo"
shall do it, and who indeed can stop us?
