''his liiunliur of The Hesperian is edi
IwUy the Palladiau Socioty.lt contains,
hi-siuVs tin interesting account of the
quarter-centennial celebration, much
matter relating to the early historv of the
society. This will please all who read
tho paper. For during the first years, the
Palladian was so intimately connected ,
with the life of the university and formed
so large a part of it that a history of the
society, through that period, must needs
be a history of the university itself. And
particularly since the principal actors, of
those days are still with us. No student
can fail to be interested iu the proceed
ings of an organization which helped to
develope such men as Caldwell. Wolfe,
Fossler, Dales or Howard. Therefore
the board gladly turn the paper over-, to
the society for this issue.
Any system or institution having
passed successfully, certain tests, such as
time and utility, may be considered rela
tively permanent. The open literary so
ciety in the university is such an organi
zation. For twenty-five years, under the
chauging conditions of rapid growth, the
principle has operated successfully. Stu
dents actuated by it have been prominent
in university life, and in social and busi
ness life after graduation. They have
stood for democracy as opposed to aris
tocracy, for utility as opposed to display.
The typical Literary Society student to
day is an all round university man. He
is patriotic, full of college spirit. He sup
ports athletics, celebrates football victor
ies and takes a just pride in the success
of the team. But he celebrates victories
in debate as well. He beliees it is as
laudable to beat Kansas in debate as in
foot-ball. Perhaps, after consideration,
he will be pardoned if he deems the work
of the debating association of as much
importance as that of the foot-ball team.
For, are not our Mercers, Fields and
Holmes as worthy products as even" good
centers or half-backs?
