The "Table" man on the Ariel rather throws light on tho mechanical part of the various college journals. In ur opinion, if it were not for the clcau make-up and style of many "school boy" papers, there would be noth ing worthy of commendation. Any way, let them work on that part which they can do best.

The question going the rounds of the college press is as to whether humorous itemfi taken from other than college papers should bo published in college journals. "We would be pleased to see the "funny" part of the college papers stopped. It is bad enough to be obliged to listen to the duily jokes of the students without having them rehashed, inflated by addition from such ordinary hu morous papers as the Hawkeye, Free Press, etc., and spread before our tired eyes once in two weeks.
