dished up to us the same old mixture consisting of
orations, essays, recitations and debates. We had ear
nestly hoped that some society would he original
enough to vary the programme by something new,
but have been disappointed. We earnestly hope that
when '88 takes the helm it will be inspired with some
new thought, some new idea that will relieve the
stiffness of the June programmes.

It is to be hoped that the students will come back
from their vacation with 'a determination to add some
thing to the regular University routine in the way of
athletics. We ought to lose no time in reviving our
athletic association, and pushing it forward for all it is
worth. We have acquired a great deal of new and
apparently good material from an athletic point of
view and they should begin their practicing early in
the term if they expect to accomplish anything.
Contrary to our expectations the June class
question has not formed a very prominent question in
student politics this year, but the matter seems to
have been taken as settled last year, judging from the
alacrity with which each society has selected its class."
This is good, and we hope that it is not only settled
for this year but for years, for we believe that no bet
ter system could be introduced. There is a fault,
however, in all of the classes selected, or rather in
th ivirfc nccirrnerl tn the mmnhpre nf thr different
classes, and that is in the fact that we are to have I
We are happy to note the fact that this year the
University is being recognized by our legislature as
an institution worthy of the state's heartiest support.
The apparent alacrity with which our appropriation
bills have been passed seem to suggest that this legis
lature is ashamed of the parsimonious economy prac
tised by the last legislature and is striving to make
amends for it. A very pleasing feature connected
with the appropriation of $165,000 for running ex
penses for the next two years is the practical acknow
legdement of the principle that the University's inon
ey should be placed in the hands of the University.
With $50,000 for a new building and 165,000 for
current expenses.the next twd years look bright, from
a financial standpoint.
We have urged before in the columns of The Hes
ferian, the student to have .more interest in the state
associations which meet in our University. We
would like to urge it more warmly now, as there is
soon to meet in our midst an association which, from
its nature, ought to demand more attention from the
students than perhaps any other. An association con
sisting of the teachers of the pupils who are to take
our places in the future, should command more than
ordinary attention, and as many students as can pos
sibly arrange to spend one or two days at their meet
ing, which takes place just before the beginning of our
spring term, will be amply repaid for their trouble.
The acquaintance of the leading educators of the
state should be made and they be given an idea of
what the University is doing and can do, and we can
see no better way for them to judge of that than by
basing their judgment on the students as they see
We are too prone to forget, when engrossed in the
routine work of our regular classes, that there is some
thing else that we ought to cultivate. In this later
