In a recent issue we spoke of favorable comments
on some of the articles in the University Studies and
said that mention of Prof. Fontaine's article must be
deferred until later. Comments have now been re
ceived and we are glad to say that they are very fav
orable. Prof. Todd, of Johns" Hopkins, reviews the
article in Mod. Language Notes, giving quite a di
gest of it and saying that it is a "suggestive and com
prehensive explanation of the varying uses of auxil
iary verbs in the Romance languages." But by far
the most gratifying mention comes from Prof. Tob
ler, of the University of Berlin, probably the highest
authority in Germany on the Romance languages.
In the last number of Zeitschrift fuer Romanische
Philologie, Prof. Tobler expresses the pleasure he re
ceived from reading the article in Studies and notes
that Prof. Fontaiue has independently come to the
same conclusion as himself on many points. It is
by such articles as this, which attract the attention of
world-renowned scholars, that our University is be
coming known and its influence is extending; It is
well for students to appreciate the efforts our faculty
are making to raise the standing of the institutuion.
. It was with unbounded astonishment that the stud
ents of the University learned that the use of the ar
mory had been granted to an organizaion of Lincoln
society people, for the purpose of holding a "german."
It was a matter of little importance apparently; but
the students remembered a time when almost two hun
dred of their number had made a request for the use
of the armory for an informal hop at the end of-the
fall term. Their request was refused. The students
accepted the decision with good grace.
But when it was known that the use of the ar
mory had been granted to an outside organization,
the students felt that they had been unjustly treated.
The Hesperian does not desire to criticise any
one without cause. However, it does riot seem right
that those not connected with the University should
receive such a privilege over the heads of the students.
There may be some reason lor granting the armory
for a "german," but as it is the students feel sore
over the action. They do not believe that the use
of the armory should be given to others while they
themselves have been denied it. is it a. fact that the
