People can howl all day about the
laziness seen on the campus; It doesn't
hurt anybody. Anyway, the very peo
ple who howl, never had the sensation
obtained by a good afternoon's loaf.
At all times they would rather shut
themselves up in a room, lock the door,

Tim iinivnraitv track team will be other high office on account of the es-
picked from the winners of next Fri
day's meet. This means" the trip to
Omaha on the 26th to compote against
Minnesota university and also the trip
to Monmouth and Chicago the last of
the month. The men are in good shape
and no doubt some records will be
broken as the interest and competition
in most of the events is keen.
The fact that the inter-class swim
ming contests were not more gener
ously supported has not discouraged
those in charge of the track team.
Every effort will bo put forth to se
cure good attendance at the coming
track meets and insure the financial
teem In which they are held.
The Idler never was so proud of his
name as now. The Idler can idle indo
lently and ignorantly day in and day
out, for indolence and ignoranco are
bliss and It is folly to have Fly Botter
Catche or any of those dinky things.
He can lie around on the campus and
smoke and listen to the freshman boast
how he is going to shoot that cannon
or blow himself up with dynamite in
tho attempt and marvol at the 'ponny
wiso, pound-foolish uppor-clnss mon
talking politics through their hats.
Its nil vory well to talk about edu
cation when you aro homo in tho sum
mor visiting the folks and aro trying
to work them to lot you come back
tho next year, but in tho spring when
tho lilacs and tomato vines and cherry
trees aro in bloom and tho English
sparrows sing sweotly and contentedly
all day and half tho night every day
and every night, it is a poor subject.
Take the Idler's advice; don't study,
it doesn't make any difference whether
you flunk or not. Get out on tho grass
with your golf suit on and two or threo
girls around you r.nd hunt four leaf
clovers till tho cows come homo. Hully
gee! You'll nevor know what you miss
till you try it.
There's only one draw back to tho
whole deal. That's tho profs. Every
time one hoves in sight you have to
roll over and hove out. Its tho only
thing you can do and hold your repu
tation. Those fellows are always sot
on blood and they aro going to make
a fellow work on studies until 3 a. m.,
Thursday morning, May 24. Then, if
ho is through, ho can study for the
finals which -begin five hours later.
Yes sir, if you've never tried it, you
ought to go at it before it is too late.
Golden opportunities are not plentiful,
so don't miss 'cm any more than you
