a proper showing.
The students who attend our University are marked
for their conscientiousness in study, their respectful
attention and obedience to those in authority over
them and their willingness to experience self-denial
and even hardship in order that they may reap the
benefits of liberal education here, but they are defi

politeness among us would cost nothingand pay well.
This is no doubt a minor fault when compared with
the good qualities that we have just mentioned, but
nevertheless it is an unnecessary one and reflects upon
us in the outside world. That a great many warm
personal friendships exist among us is beyond dispute,
but wo do lack a general kindliness and fellowship
that it would take very little individually, to create
and permanently establish. The Student docs not
think that the deficiency named comes from anything
more than a caroler or self-occupied disregard ofone
anothcr's feelings. Too many of us are strangers.
How many who read this will recogni.e the existence
of this defect, and do what lies in their power to reme
