8 THE HESPERIAN EXCHANGE. DIRECT POINTERS. The Monmouth Collegian is one of the best exchanges it is our lot to read. It has a numerous editorial staff, and they seem to bestow much hard work on the make-up of their sheet. We would especially call attention to the good quali ty 01 its editorials. The Lombard Review for May is much better than usual. The article on -Business Colleges" strikes hard at their sys tern of education. Wc endorse the sentiments and think the matter would bear consideration even in the face of the suc cess with which business colleges meet. From our exchanges wc gather the following facts concern ing the inter-statc oratorical contest: It was held in Blooming ton, 111., May 5U1. Nine states were represented. J. II. Fin ley, the Illinois orntor.took first prize. His subject was"uJohn Brown." Second prize was taken by Park Daniels, of Indi ana. In the last number of the College Student the editor-in-chief bids his fellow journalists adieu. He is one of those specimens of humanity that wc sec sauntering lazily through the halls answering to the name Senior. Notwith standing this in hU editorial capacity he has done his work well and won many friends. Wc regret to lose him and hope his place will be filled by one as able. Doane College is crying loudly for an instructor in elocu tion. Wc heartily sympathize with our sister school. Not four months ago wc were in the same condition. Our cry went forth, and at last wc arc supplied with the much needed in structor. Of course the benefits for us as students arc yet in the future. And for those who make a judicious use of the opportunities now offered, there will be surprising improv ments. We have rummaged through the great pile of exchanges endeavoring to find something half way entertaining. But very lew of the articles found satisfy our desires. A languid, half careless air seems to pervade all. The continuous wear and tear of the year's work that is now drawing to a close seems to have absorbed all the energies oi the editors. Wc feel this to be the case with ourselves. It is a relief lor us to look ahead and think that wc arc writing the exchange for the lost time until after the summer vacation, and perhaps for all time. We hope that during the vacation the numerous cd itors will lay up enough energy to start out on next year's work with a vim that would surprise even the readers of the IlEsl'ERIAN. Friend Carlelonia, wc button up our coat, assume as mili tary an air as possible, and plainly say wc do not like the style of your last exchange. Your writer must have been working under a terrible pressure when those articles were penned. If they arc intended as criticisms they lack the es sential part: the reason why. It is no use to tell a man we don't like his style if we do not give the reasons. For this reason wc are going to say why we arc not suited. In the first place we do not think that the writer of those exchange articles believed in the doctrines he wJts preaching. Take for instance the "advice to contestants." But perhaps that was meant for a joke. If so it was a failure. In the second place the writer does not seem to have anything to write about, a nost imperative reason why he should not have written.
