The University yell has become very vigorous.
So vigorous has it become that it threatens to invade
the "cooler" some of these fine evenings. As a pro
tection for the yell, every student should make it a
point to lock it up in his room at nine o'clock each
night. Otherwise our dearly beloved yell will get

The unusual interest awakened in athletics is cause
for rejoicing among students. It is to be hoped that
every student will avail himself of the opportunities for
physical cxercUe. At the same time it is we'l to re
member that moderation in all sports will produce
the best results. But an hour or so of good healthy
exercise each day on the campus will be beneficial to
The movement towards forming a western inter
collegiate press association has the hearty co-operation
of The Hesperian Such an organization will be of
benefit to every college editor. The Hesperian will
have a representative at the meeting at Grinnell, May
2, Although difficulties will be encounteied, still
such an association will be worth the greatest effort.
Its success however will demand untiring zeal, and
a greater amount of work than is usually done upon
average college papers. The publication of a wes
tern college magazine similar to iheCflZegiau should
be attempted as soon as possible.

botany specimens must be gathered and classified.
In the spring the full three hours of drill are required.
A large number of the second year students drill from

quired of the second )ear student in the spring term
is very much greater th.in that inquired in the win
ter term, Asa result they are over-purdened at the
most inconvenient season of the year. Would it not
