Beginning with this issue, one column of The
Hesperian will be devoted solely to the alumni and
former students. Until other arrangements are made
the column will be under the charge of the editor-in-chief.
It is the intention to make the alumni notes
of especial interest. Any news in regard to gradu
ates will be gladly received and published,
Lack of space renders it impossible for The Hes
perian to print, in this issue, the constitution of the
Western Inter-collegiate Press Association. It wiH
appear in the next issue. A report of the convention
will be found in another column. Every college pa
per should join this association at once. United
efforts and mutual association will raise the standard
of college journalism in the west, and increase the in:
fluence of every college paper,

The states will pursue a system of rotation in regard
to order on the program. All this has been brought
about by changes in the constitution at the recent

being made to the constitution, it would have been
a wise move to provide that judges for the contest, so
far as possible, should be chosen from states not rep

tioning the honesty or fairness of any judge in any of
the contests, we wish to call attention to a coincidence
in one respect, that is extremely likely, if seen .
often, to arouse ill feeling among some of the con
