The Nickle Scheme.
How many problems in life are as easy
as "rolling off from a log" when we know
how to tackle them! Mere wo have been
worrying and planning as to how the
student body, as a whole, eoukl be made
to feel an interest in (he College Settle
ment. Now Dr. Sherman comes and
proposes a rlan which is simplicity itself
and which is sure to be successful if the
students see its full meaning. Tt is a
'fickle Scheme.' ' No more and no less
than that each student should give just
slive cents to this noble work. Could we
think of anything more simple more
easily done than this?
The one difficulty that has overshad
owed all others since this work began,
lias been that the student body as a
whole has not come in touch with it.
Now we all know that no one will be very
much in touch with any enterprise unless
he is personally interested in it. "Bvory
student in the university will not go
down and take part in the College Settle
ment work, so the question has been how
'to bring the work to the students. The
Ipla'n suggested seems to be a most happy
One in this respect. We do not think
that there is a student in the university
who would not give this small sum to so
noble a work. Every person who puts
even this small amount into the work,
will if he gives it in the right spirit, foci
'interested. And if people are interested
'there will be no question about the reflex
A great many people 'have a queer con
ception of anything that is labeled Hinr
ity." They think of it in general inn
sort of a "sack of flour" or "old suit of
clothes" way. Now t his idea is. if rightly
fostered, a good one so far as it goo
Rut here is an opportunity for u- to ttikc
a hand in a work not alone to teed tin
hungry body, but also the -hungry mi'"'
We have the privilege of taking Imrt111
one of the grandest works that humanity
knows that of raising our fellow men
to a higher plane morally, intcllcetniiHy
and spiritualty. All hail the "nuke'
scheme" and let every organ'rfition in
school as well as every individual briiuc
this matter into prominenee and action.
While the TLesperian regrets that tin
Maxwell elub was unable toscttlMt11
difficulties, it is ready 'lo commend tin
'Chancellor for his tiimety "request llij"
!t!ho meetings of the club !be temp n-arily
suspended. The affairs of the clublia"
reached that point where neither faction
would concede anything. Both faction
demanded everything. Then was no
common ground where these extremis
could meet. When the club reconvene
it is to be hoped that the judgment of tlij
'Cooler heads will prevail. That the d"
will once more become an organr"1011
for forensic training; not a band for 1"
purpose of testing "scrapping" ability'
