There is an abuse of library privi
leges on the part of a number of young
men which should not be tolerated and
which doubtless will cease to exist
after this word to the wise. We refer
to the very ungentlemanly habit of
expectorating in rooms used as much
by women as by men especially the
library. Every student should feel it
to be as intolerable an offenso as if
committed in a friend's parlor. Men
do not realize how dlsguestlng the
habit is to all women nor how impos
sible it should be in an institution like
ours to have such looking stairs, halls,
and class rooms as have been seen
for the past few weeks. There ougnt
to be some difference between the ap
pearance of the halls of the univer
sity and those of the city hall for
instance, or police headquarters.
This is particularly true of a library,
the floors of which should no more oe
subject to such treatment than should
the hard wood floors of a private resi
dence. Moreover, aside from Its un
pleasantness the habit Is extremely un
cleanly and unhygienic, so much so
that more than one city board of
health has trieu to prevent the spread
of disease by forbidding the practice
in public places. Finally the fact that
a number of the women instructors as
well as some students have complained
of the filthy appearance of halls, stair3,
class rooms, aad even alcoves, should
make every man on the campus see to
it that neither he nor his companions
offend longer In this respect.
Tho Chancellor has again been
forced to mention smoking on the
campus. It seems that this should not
be necessary. Any one who has the
best Interests of the university at heart
surely will no. do it. While we now
have better flro protection than in the
past, no risk should be taken. A fire
in any one of the buildings would re
sult in a total loss as no insurance is
carried. New buildings are needed too
badly for us to be careless with what
The Minnesota Daily in a recent edi
torial kindly told its subscribers what
kind of a paper they wanted. A. com
munication to the paper asked the or
gan of the Gophers to publish personals
and locals. The claim was made that
auph events interested the public, Evi-
dbntly, this " was ' no't tho first com
plaint. Tho editor replied wlUi n
weighty editorial stating that It was
abovo a daily paper to publish person
als. Wo would urge that it Is not
abovo any paper to please its subscrib
ers. Pcoplo wish to know what tho
members of tho faculty and their
friends arc doing. Such items are
news and It stands to reason that a
newspaper should publish them.
Trouble is browing at tho Univer
sity of Iowa. Recently, President
MacLcan suspended ten members of
tho sophomores for kidnapping the
president of tho freshman class. Pro
tests and resolutions against tho ac
tion are numerous, but it seems likciy
Dr. MacLcan will not recede from his
stand. The best element in tho univer
sity is supporting him and wo hope ne
will bo able to settle affairs without
causing too much trouble. However,
his stand is an admlrablo one and
should bo upheld.
The institution of Indoor practice
for tho foot ball men at Michigan is
an admirable cxamplo to us. Coach
Booth is here and no doubt can bo se
cured to push tho work. The follow
ing clipping from the Michigan Daily
is explanatory in itself:
"As soon as the mid-winter examin
ations are over, the foot ball team will
begin indoor signal, practice under the
direction of Kccno Fitzpatrlck. This
radical change in the foot ball practice
cannot fail to be of great benefit to
the team. It is a start toward all-year-around
