We have a nice little list, obtained with
a great deal of trouble, of students who
would never, no never, think of subscribing
for The Hesperian but who nevertheless
find both amusement and instruction in
4 'swiping," it out of the boxes, ud reading
it without money and without price. This
list would look very nice in print. Enough
We desire to extend our sincere and
humble apologies to the faculty members of
the Athletic committee for the injustice
done them by an obscure "local" in our last
issue. The local in question was entirely
unjust and uncalled for, and TnE Hesperian
asks for the pardon of the faculty members

to a finish without such exciting auxiliaries
as canvass psntw &mJ nose guurds to kindie
the imagination and arouse the enthusiasm
of the spectators. Take our debating asso
ciation, and the preliminary contests, just
