The Wisconsin state oratorical contest lias happened and
Uipon college takes first place. Hipon college is in luck as
this is her first year in the association.
The Star of Hiram college has doubled its size and prom
ises to better its appearance by a magazine cover. For a
monthly or semi-monthly this is the proper thing to do.
In the University of Michigan they call the "baths," "in
dependents." This is more dignified but "they get there
just the same," for they have secured the management of the
base ball team.
Th Miami Student for March contains a beautiful cut and
a biographical sketch of one of its famous alumni, lately de
ceased, (icn. Robert C. Schenck. It isadcscivcd nibutc to
the memory of the man.
The College Echoes of Lane university, Sccomplon, Kan.,
has this item: "The Greeks and barbarians arc waging a long
and stubborn war at the state university. We thought so
from the K. S. U. papers. Ah! it's a merry war."
The Doane Otol emphatically denies the assertions of the
Gates Index that Doane is in financial straits. Says the Owl,
"The college is in better condition and is doing better work
than ever better before." We arc glad to know that Doane
is all right. Long may she live.
Many of our exchanges just coming in show the results of
the press of work coming just before the close of the term.
They arc like a room swept in a hurry where the corners arc
left in an unkempt state. The odd corners of the paper have
not received their proper attention.
Of all the elegant monthlies that wc receive perhaps the
best, typographically at least, is the University Forum of the
University of the City of New York, nor is it behind the best
in literary matter. All in all it is an honor and a credit to
college journalism. The magazine just received seems more
like a souvenir than a regular issue.
The K. S. U. Review tries hard to accept its defeat in the
oratorical contest with good grace. As an evidence of its
good will it congratulates the winning man, Naylor of Wash
burn college. Just wait, Mr. Review, until Naylor meets Nc
braska's polished orator. Your man will go down as stubble
before a prairie fire.
The Occident takes the poor frcshies to task for making
themselves too conspicuous on Charter day. It says, in part,
"It was their first regular college holiday and. not yet being
fully free from their petty high school customs and being un
assimilated into college life, they arc not in a position to lully
appreciate the character of the day." Wc presume the edit
or of the Occident is just beginning to appreciate his own
This office is receiving weekly that greatest of prohibition
papers, the New York Voice. A caieful perusal of this paper
will repay any student and especially those desirous of keep
ing posted on the campaign going on in our own state. For
it is always necessary to leave home to get the news of home.
It would be a good idea if this paper could be placed on the
library tables together with the advocates of so many other
reforms of not half the prominence or importance of the one
represented by the Voice. We make this as a suggestion to
The ex, man of the Argus says that we have accused him
of holding his position through the influence of fraternities
and of conducting his department in their interests. Well,
suppose that wo did say the above and suppose that lie was
nominated by a non-lrnt in a meeting in which there were
only four or five fiats prcssnt the Argus must cater to the
frats lest the Pan-Hellenic steps into the breach with alacrity.
Nor will we retreat from the position the Argus man says we
took until wc see a better explanation of the sudden change
of tone in the exchange column of his paper. In conclusion
wc would remind the gentleman of the benevolent profes
sions he made in his exordium or salutatory paiagraph and
say nothing as to his epithets. "It is the best bird that flut
ters." Some time aeo the Independent, the crcat religions week
ly of New York City, published an account of a brutal assault
made by a white professor o! Clatiln university of South Caro
lina, upon one of its colored professors. The Independent,
after stigmatizing the assault as barbarous, proceeds to severe
ly arraign the community for not arresting the assailant.
Now comes the new "frat" journal nf Mo. S. U., the Pan
Hellenic, and attempts t reply to the just attack of the Inde
pendent. It is interesting to read the '. H's account, which
is almost as brutal as the attack, "The cause of the uproar
was the knocking down of Professor Cardozo, colored, by
Professor De Trevillc, white. The uugulislic encounter was
occasioned by some disparaging remarks purported to have
been made by Professor Dc Trevillc relative to a revival
which the colored gentleman was conducting. Professor Dc
Trevillc denied the allegation but said nothing about 'licking
the alligator' till Professor Cardoz intimated that he dallied
with the truth. The presence of the president's wife in the
faculty room prevented an immediate spoilalion of the ebony
lnicd professor's countenance, but all knew it inevitable. The
next morning the gentlemen met on a stairway of the univer
sity, and the pale faced professor immediately proceeded to
demolish his colored colleague with an orange-wood club.
After knocking him down and 'walking' on him to some ex
tent, Professor Dc Trevillc retired to his room, having fully
vindicatcrt his honor," (and, forsooth, indicated his gentle
manliness. Ed. J Such is the P-H's account of the disgrace
ful affair, an affair that it indirectly defends. And yet, alter
such an encounter, (pugilistic the P-H. calls an attack by a
man with a club upon an unarmed man Wc don't sec it in
that light) the assailant is at liberty and probably more es
teemed than before by the community. The P-H. practically
says that a gentleman (sic) should resent an insult to his ve
racity, especially when given by one not his equal. C) justice,
liberty, where arc ye fled? "And that, too, made by one not
his equal." "All men are created equal."
For science and skill, in adjusting and grinding
glasses to all optical complications of the eyesight,
there are but few persons in the United States the
equal or Professor Strassman, His mathematical
calculations in optics have never been surpassed;
and you may be assured that you will always obtain
from htm just the kind of spectacles and eyeglasses
that you need. These spectacles and eyeglasses are
made to harmonize with the laws of optics. He has
the largest number of selections and varieties to be
found this side of New York or Philadelphia. No
intelligent student should overstrain his eyes without
the assistance of these strengthening auxiliaries.
