The Association Notes has just found its way to our tabic. It
abounds with interesting and valuable information concern
ing the Y. M. C. A, of New York city and the institution un
der its management. It should be read by every student in

The Niagara Index is one of the best papers that come to
our table. The excellence and instructiveness of its articles
should commend it to all. In a friendly manner wc would
suggest a neat new cover. A little harshness in its exchange
department also detracts from its merits.
Far from the west comes the news that one of our bright

The Varsity, a weekly paper, comes to us with its usual va
riety of reading matter. Monotony is one of the- crying evils
of college papers and when such a luscious morsel as the

literary department is the main feature of the paper, but
where, O where is the exchange?
The Weekly lniv. Courier is again before us. As usual it

the great field of journalism. Wc bid yoa welcome.
Among the editorials of the Coup d'Etat we notice an ex
cellent article on debate. When it said "It is the prevailing
custom among debaters to jealously keep their arguments se
cret until the night of the debate and then seek to win by sur
prising the opponent with new and far-drawn constructions
rather than by fair means," it struck the secret of failure in
society debates. A complete understanding of each other's
argument would add much to the value and interest of the
debate. It would, we think, do away with the desire on the
part of so many to leave as soon as debate is announced.
