A sudden change in the management of
the Student brings us unexpectedly upon
the journalistic stage. Our surprise how
ever is but momentary. Wo glance at the
periodicals around us, and recover, to re
alize in part, the responsibility ol' our
position. Though somewhat inexperi
enced in the work to be accomplished, we
nevertheless hope to learn from the attain
ments of others, and to improve by re.
peated efforts. Inexperiancc may be no
excuse for an inferior journal, yet with the
best of knowledge one may make a com
plete failure. Diligence may acquire a
certain degree of perfection, while talent
sleeps by the way.
The Student thus far has been prosper
ous and progressive. Willi other college
papers it compares favorably, and in this
position we will endeavor to maintain it
As formily it will be conducted for the
benefit of the students and in the interest
of the University. It will be the champion
of no single society or faction, but will be

ability. But to this end we need their earn

the L'nivcrsit, who can and do write well;
and could they realize the importance of
a college journal and aid it accordingly,
the question of sustaining it would at
once be derided.
The Student would indeed miss its
aim were its contributors not to furnish
their best productions. If one would
achieve any measure of literary success,
it is necessary that he spare neither labor
nor pains.
Under the management of two editors-in-chief,
the Student enters upon a new
career. Though there was some opposi
tion to such a manner of conducting the
paper and many misfortunes predicted,
we shall endeavor to avoid all dangers
that may arise and to make the experi
ment a success. Let all students then ir
respective of society and class affinities,
freely assist us In this undertaking with
their prompt and efficient support, and
with this encouragement, we will feel
