Again the lime lias come when a change
is made in the editorial corps of the "Stu.
dent." Our connection with the pupen
though of short duration hasheen a pleas
ant one, as we have everywhere met the
well-wishesund cordial hclpol'our friends
One won! only we have to sa' hefore
taking leave of you all.
In order that a maga.ine of this size
may he sustained with credit to the Uni
versity, the students must consider them
M'lvcsjust as much hound to contribute
for its columns as though they were every
one editors. In tin: older colleges of the
Kust, where therearo always aspiring au
thors, good material can always hu found
to ill! the columns of a paper. Editors of
these papers have only to tclect, and need
not solicit, copy. And in our own Univer
sity the number of students who are uspii
ingtowiu fame in literature is exceeding,
ly small, so that those who eon write good
articles should consideittheinselves under
obligations o furnish .something for near

and amen" to this trite argument, hut there
is a vast difference between giving our an

it. The former costs nothing, whilo the
latter requires a little exertion on our
pait. That the "Student" may be such a
maga.ine as the Institution in which it is
published shall he proud of, it is necessary
that (iH-nol a certain part or party-shall
contribute their mite for it. Then, again,
when contributions, after much urging,
are sent in, let such lime be spent in revis.
ing them as will make them fit to appear
in print without any "nxing.up" by ths
editor. This "lixing-up" an article will
give almost any editor the "blues;" and
he is apt to become careless about the
matter himself when he sees that the
author cares so little as to how his pro.
duction will appear in print.
With some regrets that we can no long,
er be called Air. Editor, and with many
well-wisl.es for the prosperity of our sue
cessor, we make our bow to patrons, friends
ami foes, (if we have any,) and take our
leave. A. U. Hancock.
Iluuie has tersely said that it isditticult
for a man to speak long of himself with
out vanity. He might have added that it
is equally difllcult to dwell long upon
plans for the future without seeming to
