The Hesperian xetends greetings Jo the hosts of
new students and takes the occasion to remind tl.cm
that this paper is published in the interests of the in
stitution of which they, are now a part. We shall
strive to make the paper interesting. If we do not
succeed, drop in and tell us about it.
The Hesperian hereby announces itself as a can
didate for the patronage of every true friend of the
University, subject to the approval of each individual
mind. We shall try to advance every new movement
for the University's welfare, and we shall ever be
ready to fight that which we deem prejudicial to her
There appears to be a disposition on the part of
a certain section of the' University to boycott The
Hesperian. We are sorry to lose any part of the
support of the paper; byt we can live without those
who refuse us their subscriptions. Moreover, such a
move will effectually remove a gag which has of late
been oppressive. We await developments.
Melancholy though it be, it is nevetheless true
that the propoitionate number of young ladies in the
University is decreasing. The number of joung
men entering this "fall is phenomenally large. The
t number of oui:g ladies is discouraginglysmall. We
have not been able to get a satisfactory explanation
of the fact, but several solutions have been suggested.
We have been told that the "educational fad" adop
ted by society young ladies, resulting in a large num
ber of special students, not remarkable fophrillfano ,
has so lowered the reputation of University co-eds
that many mothers refuse to send their daughters.
This may or may not be true. If such an impression
is abroad, it should be corrected. No sensible, stud
lous girl need fear that she camot do good work in
the University. Thcie are those in the Univershv,
both male and female, who are in it for no good and
who hurt its reputation. The door of a siatt iiisihn
lion ran not be shut on tnfler though they injure it.
We hope if any false prejudices jue keeping awav
young ladies, that these may be overcome and the
west side of the chapel fill with beauty and grace at
the same rare that the east side has filled with youth
ful awkwardness and ninnlv strength.
