A college paper is a great institution. The
editor receives the kicks, the business mana
ger the cash; the editor's work is never done,
the business manager's is ahvaj's dux.
That National Convention was an ideal
place to alienate your friends and confirm
your enemies. The fellow who didn't do this
was shrewd enough to keep in the background
The "prof." who will excuse a student
a whole month to practice for a foot
ball game and not a single recitation to pre
pare for the preliminary debates may get to
Heaven, but he will never do so with the con
sent of the Hesperian
There are no students who fail to regret the
resignation of Prof. Fred V. Card, as head
of the Horticultural department, and Miss
Mabel Tuttlo, as executive clerk. Both have
nrt merely been able and conscientious work
ers in their respective positions, but both have
been considered as among the students' friends
Prof. Card has accepted a position in a Rhode
Island institution as head of tho College of
Mechanic Arts and Agriculture. Miss Tuttle
has a position on the editorial staff of tho
"North-Western Monthly." The best wishes
of tho student body go with them in their new
and larger fields of labor.
Ciiartkr Day. Since the last issue of tho
ILkspkriax, tho University has passed its
twenty-ninth milestone. The event was fit
tingly celebrated in accordance with the cus
toms that have grown up around our Charter
Day. The Electrical Engineers, on Monday
evening exhibited the latest inventions in
their department; on Tuesday as usual, the
buildings and departments were thrown open
to the public, and in the evening a large aud
ience at the Oliver listened to a vigorous de
fense of State Universities by President Draper.
Twenty-nine years in the life of a Univer
sity, is a very short period. But time is
measured by the happening of events rather
than by the llux of days, and when events
rapidly crowd upon each other and tread up
on each other's heels, much history is com
pressed into a brief space of time. It so with
the West generally and with our University
in particular. In years ours is among tho
youngest of tho great Universities; but in cap
abilities and achievements it it not far behind
the foremost. It is a matter of congratula
tion to all its friends that as our University
is about to enter upon its fourth decade it a
ready to take its place beside universities
that are entering upon their fourth century.
Review ofUnivorMity ResrimenL.
The review of the University regiment by
the Governor has come to be one of the events
of the Charter day exercises, and considering
tho lack of outside drill and tho adverse cir
cumstances which the regiment has exper
ienced in reorganizing and getting down to
work this year, the drill was very creditable
to the department. Soon after the sounding
of the bugle at 1:55 p. m. on Charter day,
the two battalions formed on the campus be
tween the chemical building and tho library.
Those winning individual prizes at competi
tive drill last spring were then escorted to the
stand on the east side of the parade grounds,
by Company B under command of Captain
Chas. Hendy, where the Governor with a few
appropriate words presented tho medals.
