the thing would have been there yet Fletch. was the lion o
the hour, even to the roar; he took charge of the crowd and
the successful return is due entirely to his untiring efforts.
The only thing remaining was to pick up the parties who had
straggled along the road towards Lincoln aad then do the in
evitable apset. This last is described as being tragic in the
extreme. According to one of the fairer partidpaats, all that
was accessary was that the boys lean back, opea their anas

were getting wee" aad small" whea the party reached Lia

-Editor Hesperian. If you will kiadly allow me to vest
my feelings through yoar columns it may save me the trouble
of doing a little swearing. Somebody has stolen my rubbers!
I wouldn't make a fuss, but this thing happens just a little
too often in the University, for comfort. Another fellow I
know had two hatsstolen from him last term, and if he should
write you a letter I know you wouldn't dare print it. Now
who does this stealing anyway? It can't be the Profs, of
course, but every body below them must be considered guilty
until he proves that he isn't the thief. Wnat's the matter
with organizing, to run the rascals down? I may be the ex
treme in my views, but I'm MAD. Those rubbers cost me
just $1.00, and I need the money for oysters to pay a bet lost
lastterm. Let's go in for blood. Rubbers.
Mr. Editor. The library is not a place to study and
never was intended to be used for that purpose. But since
there is no other .place to study, it is necessary to use it for
such. It is not a resort for children, nor is it intended a place
for the warm-hrartedsHiooth-tongued dedples of Cupid, to
express their peat up feeling. It is not the daty of the libra
rian to stand over them with a dub, aad try to preserve order
among a lot of children, whose place is at he high schools.
This is a gentle hint to such, that there room is worth more
than their presence. Interested.
Mr. Editor. Again the old trouble of noise in the balls is
becoming noticeable, especially in ihe first hour of the morn
ing, it Has been suggested as a partial icniedy that the
library be opened at 8:30 so that students coming early 109:30
recitations can have a place to go without hanging around the
stairways and making noise enough to waken a policeman.
As" it is now there is no place to go, and the nails have to be
used as waiting rooms. Again, it quite frequently happens
that a libinry book is wanted for a reference, early in the
morning, and it would be a great convenience to be able to
get into the library. Why can't we have it open all day as
well as a part? is the question that bothers a great many, and
there seems to be no real good answer. B.
Ed. Hesperian: We learn from the Courier that the stu
dents of that place not nnfrequently have a University ball.
That paper strongly advocates them, when indulged in occa
sionally, as productive of much good in bringing the students
together in a social way and "creating a strong K. S. U. feel
ing." These are our sentiments, exactly. A University ball
once or twice a term would, in oui opinion, have an exceeding
ly healthy effect upon our social relations. If we continue
much longer in the direction we have been drifting we will
soon reach a point where laughing will be considered an un
pardonable crime and moving faster than a -walk a sign of 311
breeding; in fact wc will some day be pounced -upon and car-
old fashioned Puritan settlement. Let us reform.
