The students are looking forward to the Juno
meeting of the board of regents in the hope that
I)r Wolfe will lie reinstated.
Now that the school year is Hearing its close the
usual "jam" has come in everything. It is not alto
gether the faculty's fault cither. A great many
students are prone to leave all special work until
the last minute and then come d-ingero'tsiy near
nervous prostration because the work is so heavy.
Some resolutions weie unanimously pascd by the
senior class this week asking and "instructing" the
Chancellor to omit the latin formula on the presen
tation of diplomas The request is a most peculiar
one However the action of the seniors does not
deserve serious discussion until it is announced
whether their "instructions" mean something or
arc simply as rivals to ome of the Junior Annual
We all expected great things of the. Junior Annual
and were not disappointed. There arc few student
publications which have more genuine merit than
the Sombrero of the class of 9S. Replete with art
from cover to cover it is an honor, not only to the
Junior class, but to the university. A few people
seem to think that such a publication should lie one
of stately literary merit alone. What is an annual
for, if not to bring back to the mind the memories
and associations of our college life The illustra
tions, photographs and "joaks" do this better than
anything else, and who could find a 1etter collection
of such than in the publication just issued The
annual hoard should lie given great credit for their
tireless energy in the production of a liook, which
not only represent every organization in the uni
versity, but the institution itself in such a creditable
manner. The classes of the future with an annual
in view will have to "hitch their wagon in a slat" if
they improve on 9R.
