"With this issue the Hicspkuian begins its
twenty-seventh year of publication. For
twenty-six years the ILksimckian lias been rec
ognized as the tlitdeivts' paper. There is
every reason to believe that the paper will
more than ever deserve this recognition dur
ing the coining year. The IIksi-kician will
continue to be the only college publication
advocating cjllegj denucracy, the only paper
ottering encouragement to university literary
talent and the only paper which does not fill
its news columns with city paper reprint.
The size of the type to be used on the JIiw
j'Kiua.v ha 4 this year been reduced and the
number ofpagi's increased. This will enable
the paper to give its readers more literary
matter, more locals and personals, more
society, debating, department and athletic
news, mom jokes and editorials. In short,
the Jlicsi'KUUN is going to bo still a better
paper than it has been in the past. In being
what a college journal is supposed to be the
iricsi'KiciAN has no real rival. Now is tka
tune to subscribe
By some one's carelessness both the univer
sity calendar and the Y. M. C. A. hand book
announce that the JIksi'kicja.n is a semi
monthly publication. This not only does the
JIicsi'KUiAN an injustice but it misinforms new
students, who have no reason to know other
wise. This Hksi'kuian' is not semi-monthly;
it is published every Friday, and it would
Hcem to follow that it is a weekly publication.

Appropriate to the commemoration of the
celebration of the twenty-fifth anniversary of
its organization, the Pallndinn society issued
a souvenir. The souvenir is intended to point
out the beginning, the progress and the field
of the Palladisin society; as well to emphasize
for what the society has stood, what it has
done for its members, and for the university.
The souvenir contains a very creditably
written history, not only of the society, but
of the university, covering a period of twenty
live years, or from 1S71 to 180(5. It also con
tains a list of all persons, who ever belonged
to the society, giving the year they graduated,
their catalogue address and their present ad
dress. There are also lists of all who ever
held ollices in the society, and of the present
members of the society. The constitution of
the society and brief histories of the 1. B. I).
('. and 'P. (5. I). ( complete the souvenir.
The souvenir contains several outs of sub
jects dearest to I'alladian hearts. The first is
tha of Win. II. Snell '7:$, the first president
of the society. The next is that of Amos G.
Warner 'So, to whom the souvenir is dedi
cated. It also contains cuts of the "Old
Home," the "Present Members" and of Miss
"Flora Mullock, the anniversary president.
The literary part of the souvenjr is unusu
ally well written, the cuts are good, and aside
from a few inaccuracies in names and ad
dresses it is a credit to the university as well
as to the society.

Doubtless there are very few new students
who have int been accosted with the ques
tion: "Are you going to work with the socie
ties or with the fraternities?" The lirst time
the new student hears this question he is fairly
dazed. He does not see its signWicauco.
Perhaps he has read in the daily papers of
'barbs' and frats;' and of their scraps. l,lo
has had little or no sympathy with either.
He has been led to believe that societies and
fraternities are simply organizations to gratify
student tastes and give vent to personal an
tagonisms. I Ie does not appreciate the extent
of the inlluenco a college organization has on
its members. It is impossible for him to con-
