'munication in this issue, TnE Hesperian
prints the views of. a good, faithful and
staunch barbarian alumnus, who agrees with
us that the way to fight the frats is to fight
them. The Hesperian is a barbarian paper,

All wet with dew and blushing deeply red,
And carried it with reverential love

tyranny. And he says, "Oh, what's he
use, good people?" and stamps his toot.
"You know it."
Yes, we know it. Wo wore born sho'ft
ourselves. Don't wo know it? Those hor
rible Friday afternoons, when wo stood with
tottering knees, twisting our fingers together,
and watching the little boys giggle, while
