There used to be a saying that "fanners arc sleepy" hut
conclusive proof has been wanting until very latey, when the
Prof, called Mr. Farmer, Mr. Firmer, Mr Farmkk, next.
Miss Scott, one of our new students, had the misfortune to
fall sick nearly at the beginning of her work, but wc arc

Some confusion was caused in the first few chapel services
of the term, on account of the greater number of students on
the so-called male side of the chapel than on the other. Some
thing of an arbitrary arrangement was made whereby the
back rows on the girls' side are to be reserved for the boys.
This looks considerably like some small sectarian college
mandate, and seems rather childish for a state institution.
Custom and courtesy will keep most of the boys on one side,
but there is certainly no harm done, even if they do mix a
little. This looks like a "color line" that is not in keeping
with a first-class co-educational institution.
