The P'dladians are having considerable
trouble over the adoption of a new con
stitution. Tlio Constitution Committee,
in their report, omitted tlio olllce of critic.
A majority of tho society, however, do
siring such an oflice, it was inserted in
the Constitution. This oflice is a farce.
The Critic usually begins by finding fault
with tlio manner in which somo speaker
stood. If ho stood on ono foot, the Critic
says that this is not "according to llolye,"
but that he should stand on both feet. If
It so happened that tho speaker did stand
on both feet, then this sago says that it
looks stiff and formal to stand on bnth
feet, and that the weight of tho body
should bo shifted from one foot to tlio
the other. No doubt if the speaker stood
on his head, the Critic would find fault.
When some poor production is blundered
through tho Critic says that it is "very
good,1' and when some first class produc
lion is given, lie also announces tins as
"vitry good." Again, it Is an injustlco to
the Seniors, or those who have attended
tho University for several years, that a
Prep. should he chosen to sit in judge
ment on their productions. One member
of tho society offered as an argument,
that it was a beneficial exercise for the
Critic himself. Just because somo hull
vidual had a mania for blowing sand in
peoples eyes, would It bo right to allow
him to keep it up? Yes, a Critic is a
good thing. Thero ought to be a dozen
of them. Let tho good work go on.
