Students who fail to patronize the check

they do lose an overcoat or a book, now
and then. The misfortune is due to their
It is very encouraging to see the inter
est which is being manifest in the college
settlement. Both faculty and students
are begining to realize that the settlement
is an institution which has come to stay,
and that it is something with which each
one of us ought in some way to be allied.
People outside of the university are be

"At the last mooting of the association
a resolution to withdraw from the inter
collegiate association was defeated. It
was decided to hold a local contest."
