They arc deal hied lo do valuable work in training men
for the college journals.

W "come dmv.i." The Campus has a mission after
all Willi more grit than sense it is endeavoring to re
form the disgraceful college politics of Allegheny by sub
stituting ti e honor system for the present method of elec

The fuss made by the Kunsus University Courier over
an appropriation of $50,000 for a new building reminds
one of the frantic yells of the democratic press after the
Jast election. Somebody please pour a pitcher of ice
water down the back, of our excitable neighbor. The
