9 HOSE people who took occasion to assail us be
J cause they heard that there was going to be a
ball at the inter-state contest, were to say the least a
little previous. The fact that a few of the students
were in favor of a ball should not be a pretext for any
to denounce as unchristian the whole state university.
We think an apology is due us.
E presume that people are free to act as they
please but at the same time it seems to us -that
loyalty for the university should cause all studci.ts
to act in harmony when the reputation of the insti

have a banquet all by itself immediately after the con
test. Those who attended this rival banquet were too
tired to go to the one given by the oratorical associa

might have been, had Phi Delta Theta shown a more
patriotic spirit. Perhaps the Phis had reasons suffi

their banquet was given with the deliberate intention
of injuring the association banquet it is quite evident
that there are some who when the' cannot rule
desire to destroy.

and encourage by his presence those who are on the
program. There is nothing more discouraging to
performers than to be compelled to speak to rows of
empty chairs If a society does not give good pro
grams people will lose faith in tl at society and thus
it will become harder for it to secure desirable mem
bers. Each member, then, should realize the respon
sibility that rests upon himand never disappoint the
society when he is put on the program. A society can
be prosperous only through the loyalty of the individ
ual members. Too often the society secretary is
looked upon as a taskmaker a person to be avoided
if possible, Unless the secretary is loyally supported
by the individual members of the society he has a
