We expect 110 mercy after perpetrating such an
outrage upon the unsuspecting students in the pre
sentation of this, the vacation number of the Hesper
ian, and according are prepared for the worst. Do
not venture too far into our sanctum, for we varn you
that we are prepared to prevent any very violent
chastisement for inflicting this All Fools' Day joke.
If,however, you can be appeased " by promises, you
have our promise that we will never make such a
break again, at least without timely warning.
Yesterday closed the last session of the legisla
ture, a session fraught with many things of interest to
the University. We are thankful that we have been
so liberally dealt with, but what pleases us most is the
recognition of that principle which the University
has striven so long to establish, that the University
authorities should have control of University funds.
On the 17th of March occurred the fourth annual
Commencement of the Medical College; when a class
of young men were graduated. Our Chancellor very
fittingly told of the hardships and discouragements
met with and predicted that if they met each trial
of professional life with as much patience and energy
as evinced in their course here, a marked success
would follow. We are sorry to lose the members of
this class, for in their three years stay they have made
many friends. We regret to say that we are unable
to give the address of the class, delivered by Mr D.
S. Moore, but we most deeply sympathize with the
thoughts there presented.
It may seem as if we were over anxious to make
our request, now that the University is not so cramp
ed financially as it has been for years, yet in'the light
of long and patient waiting for that which is ac
knowledged by all to be almost a necessity, we deem
it not out of place to ask for Hesperian wants. The
Hesperian is (pardon the allusion) an essential fea
ture of the University and we feel confident that our
authorities will recognize that fact as they have in the
past. We are laboring and have been long laboring
under great disadvantages, and to keep abreast of the
progress of the University we should have the materi
al to be able to present something besides the same
old appearance, and to be able to make a change in
the customary matter if we, by chance, should stum
ble upon some original thought. And then, one vis
it to our sanctum would convince anyone of the
need of more commodious and quiet quarters. We
are paying our running expenses, but.are not able to
take the needed step, although a very small sum
would accomplish all that is necessary, while the Un
iversity could not place such a small sum in any
place where the student is more directly benefitted
tl an in the Hesperian office.
