O much has been said lately about those who
borrow The Hesperian from the post office in
the hall that we supposed that those who considered
it not worth the subscription price would cease from
their unholy practice. But in this we are disap
pointed. Occasionally some one complains that his
paper cannot be found in the box and this leads us to
believe that there must be some persons around here
who do not always regard the rights of a man to his
It is amnsing to note the manner in which a per
son acts when he wishes to 'boirow' the paper. He
would not have any body think that he would stoop so
low as to even notice it. So having cast careful
glances up and down the halls he steps lightly up to
the box and secures the coveted prize. We recently
had the pleasure of seeing one of our prominent
Greeks going through such a preformance. Now we
do not intend to say that frats are the only people
who 'borrow' papers from the post office, but we do
wish to remark right here that if they desire to have
the frat, anti-frat contest fought out without indulg
ing in personalities it will be necessary for some of
them to have due regard for the property of others.
He frats seem to have become suddenly alive
with enthusiasm for literary societies. They
have revived from its slumbers the Philodicean society
and posted on the bulletin board programs for every
Friday evening of the term, even for the last night
when most of the students will be at their homes.
We wonder what has happened. Have the two mem
bers initiated by the frats this term been able to bring
about this change? If so it must be admitted that
the barbs excel in literary work. But possibly the
frats thought that it would be necessary for them to
work new students with the gag that there is as much
opportunity for doing literary work in the fraternities
as in the literary societies. While things looked
'bright and merry' for the Greeks liere they showed
no inclinations to do anything in the open society,
but now when things are beginning to look rather
blue for them they realize that it is necessary to
do something and so have resurrected the society.
Yet it is not very long ago that some of our Greeks
