The local oratorical content which is to
fyetoelfl in the chapel next IViday te
ntng, bids fair to be one of 'the best in
tihe 'history of the univei-sity. Phe con
testants are strong men who have worked
hard to make the contest what it should

atory has seen its best days as a collegiate
attain merit. We do not believe tins.
The need of such work is very evident

grace, as well as hard sense.
The senior class is to be congratulate!
oil seeming Howard Everett Hale as class
orator. We doubt if a more representa
tive of capable American could found.
He is at once the eminent preacher, schol
ar and author. Although in his seventy
fifth year, he is the strong, manly, ac
complished American which he has
always been. He comes from the east,
but is a man in thorough sympathy with
lihe west and will bring with him a spirit
of appreciation and sympathy which will

What is more trying on one's nerves
than the attempt to study when from all

the librarian either. 'He may try as he
will, but as soon as the back was turned
some puerile student will make a giddy
sally which is taken up and echoed and
re-echoed through the alcoves until the
whole room is filled with a tittering,
tlhumping, buzz. We must set our foot
down 'upon it as students, o one will
act against the good -of public opinion.
We are democratic, but let 'us not abi
and licentiate our freedom.

an article entitled "A Western 'Univers

'Here is an eastern man who is unpreju
diced one who in the strength of con
viction gives us credit for what we are
worth. No one could do this better than
Mr. (Bates. Besides 'being an unprejudic
ed 'man, he 'has spent five years with us
helping 'to tpropogate the culture which
he so earnestly sets to our credit as a uni
