Classes maj' come and classes may go, but
class scraps go on forever.
A class scrap is at least a diversion; it takes
the prosiness out of Hue musky days and puts
a little poetry into the dull drone of existence.
But the victims of the fight? "Well, they are
the "kernel that falls into the ground and
dies." that pleasure and enjoyment may
spring up and flourish. Tis hut an illustra
tion of the 'law of sacrifice.'
Postponing the time for the tiual examina
tions nearly a week is unfortunate for no
small number of students. While, it may be
a mistake to have examinations over a week
prior to commencement, yet they were so an
nounced and scheduled. Upon the faith of
such announcements many students have
made engagements which require that they
leave the University by tue ilrst of Juno. To
such students the change in the schedule
causes no slight embarassment. It is scarcely
possible to conceive of an excuse for making
the change at bo late a date.
Whatever may bo the merits of our war

with Spain, the young men composing No
baaska's National Guards are deserving of
commendatiom for their hearty response to
the call and their ready disposition to enlist.
Confronting the stern fact of war they have
not hesitated to oiler themselves in their
country's service. Without any ebullition of
youthful enthusiasm or manifestation of de
lirious excitement they have gone straight
forward at the call of duty. Our University
men have laid aside their work, deserted their
scholastic ambition temporarily and gono with
the rest. Wo commend them for their cour
age, we congratulate them on their lldelity to
sacrifice, wo wish them God-speed in their
going and will welcome them grandly in their
Apropos of the situation of affairs in the li
brary, is currently reported that the authori
ties contemplate giving the present incumbent
another triul. During the past year, practi
cally nothing has been done to increase the
etliciency of the library department. The
need for a thoroughly trained head is felt
more keenly than ever before. The present
incumbent, we regret to say, has succeeded
in inspiring neither the confidence nor the re
spect of the students. Members of the facul
ty, as well as the students generally, do not
hesitate to say that, in their judgment, the
library is too important a factor in the pro
gress of the University to be hampered by in
competency or negleot. For the good of the
University, such a deplorable state of alfairs
ought to be remedied without delay. W,
however, the authorities persist in giving the
present incumbent a new trial, it is earnestly
hoped that such re-appointment will be tend
ered upon the express condition of a rasigna
tion immediately thereafter.
The loud mouthed pseudo-patriot is beating
his breast, shouting his love of country from
the house tops and -incidentally-seeking a fat
appointment in the volunteer service by vir
tue of a political pull. Like the Pharisee of
old, he bares his breast, stands in the market
place, and calls all cowards who do not enlist
as privates while he well, ho wants to be a
major-general or rear-admiral or something
that has attached to it a fat salary. Like
