Sloan Fraternities Lee Berry Athletics This issue of the Hespekia is the last one that will appear for the school year. The year 'OS-' 99 is past (except final ex aminations), and now is but a memory with us. The manage ment of the Hesperian wishes to state that the paper closes a very successful year. The paper has held to its original pur pose of dealing fairly and honestly as far as was possible. The Hesperian has always been and ever will continue to be the organ of the great common people of this Univerdty world. It has been more of a newspaper this year than ever before, but has not entirely left out the literary department. Its news has been reliable. No attempt has beon made at sensationalism. Its editorials have been thoughtful and earn est. Its Bixby's Retreat has been, us ever, spicy and delect able. No effort has been spared to make it a genuine Univer sity paper. In this last issue the managing editor wishes to ihanl: those members of the board and others who have materially assisted him. The entire management and control of a weekly college paper is no small task:. It requires an endless amount of time, energy and worry, and the present editor has appreciated every assistance that has been given him. He wishes to state, however, that the literary Bociety members have not supported the paper as they should. They have thrust the management of the paper upon one man find have expected him to make a success of it while they have stood back, rendering at the most only lukewarm support. For those persons, whether frat or barb, who for certain economical (?) reasons have been too stingy to pay the small subscription price but who have each week taken some one's paper from the letter boxes, the managing editor has nothing but unalloyed contempt They are the persons who during the past years have hung like a dead weight upon the college Bplrit of our University. They are the persons who sneak in to see the bane ball and football games and then growl because the manager doeBn't pay expenses. Oould our University only be purged of this crowd of tight-fisted bigots there would be no trouble in creating true college spirit. As a last word, we wish to commend those who are to come after us. The Hesperian for next year will be controlled by Mr. Plowhead as managing editor, Mr. Marsh as assistaut, Harry Garrett, busiuess manager, and W. H.Warner, assistant. Last Saturday's competitive drill resulted in a victory for Co. B. Second place was nion by Co. C. This company proceeded to paint die town. The Capitol building i? covered with big C's. This is to bo rogreued. The University ex pects uinch from the legislature, and it is easy to see that this prank will turn mauy a legislator against further increase in appropriation. If Company C has auv love for the University they will proceed at once and scour off those Cs. We have the New Sprinir Styles in tiie best $3, $3.50 AND $5 SHOES on earth.
