The IIimi'kkia.v is now not only entitled to
1m willed the students' paper but also the
university paper. The efforts of the present
management have been rewarded by recogni
tion from the university authorities. They
have ordered the Hksi'Kiiian sent to the high
schools throughout the state.
The management of the Hksi'Uimax desires
to call the attention of faculty and students
to our advertisers. We have no firm which
is not reliable; we are very grateful to these
advertisers in aiding us to issue a college pa
per which is a credit to the university, to
both faculty and students. The way to re
ciprocate is to give them our support: we hope
faculty and students will remember this when
purchasing goods. If you desire to encour

The effort of the librarians, at the begin ing
of the year, to maintain due decorum in the
library, receives (he approbation of all consci
entious students. The first of the school
year is the time to begin. Let it be under
stood nam that the library Is a place for study:
not for carousel or social functions. If this
is done there will be little difficulty in iimin
tainingorder the rest of the year. The librar
ians should never again be so lenient with
students as they were last year. The ex
perience last spring shows that if the library
is once allowed to become noisy it is next to
impossible to restore proper decorum. The
librarians may remember this with profit.
Football is the recognized college game.
Moralists' may talk and "pops" may legis
late, yet college enthusiasm best manifests
itself when a contest takes place on the grid
iron. Institutions of learning gain much of
their recognition through the victories of their
football team. Xo matter how much certain
people may regret this, it is a fact neverthe
less. Tim university should have a strong
team this year. NYver before has so much
interest manifested itself m early in the sea
son. ICighteeii or twenty men are out to
practice each evening, and the presence of
seventy-five or a hundred eager rooters tells
the men that a place on the football team,
(his year, means something. So far the men
who have come out to practice show up well.
Captain Shedd and Manager Oury are feeling
jubilant over the prospect. What is now
most needed is the support of the student
body. A good football team can not be put
in the field without the expenditure of some
money. If five or six hundred students will
purchase s.-ason tickets the mauagjinant will
nothavo to go through the begging process
which was necessitated last year. Show your
scarlet and cream by investing 81. BO which
entitles you to see six games of the beat foot
ball ever played in the west.
