If we h i v e too much responsibility and shift some of It, It Is still for us to see that It Is done by the next person.

Then why should the atudenta be debarred f r o m uaing any or ail facilities offered by the College for their legitimate puraults? We are told that the Chapel is too sacred a place to be uaed for so profane a purpoae aa a maaa-meeting. In moat fields of life we have gone beyond thoae careful diatinctiona between aacred and profane occupatlona. We reject the idea t h a t religion, like the old-time Sunday suit, la to be carefully laid away on the shelf during the greater part of the .time and brought out for an airing only at stated intervals.

A "religious a t m o s p h e r e " which can be destroyed by the mere fact t h a t a pep-meetlng was held In the same room the previous night, seems too artificial to be worth keeping.






It Is to be hoped t h a t our young F r e s h m e n have been so taught th? f u n d a m e n t a l s of "table" manners that the correct use of knife, fork, spoon and fingerbowl Is almost second nature. In case there are some things which has been overlooked In their training we will drop a few gentle suggestions from time to time. This Greek's Installation will no doubt prove helpful to t h e dean In her efforts to train her latest arrivals. We would suggest a game which may be played when t h e r e are visitors at the dorm. Call the game "Boner." It consists In watching the visitor closely all during t h e meal In order to catch him In any breach of ettlquette. As soon as the guest makes a mistake the first Freshman to discover It points an accusing finger at him and i h o u t s "Pulled a Boner." The F r e s h m a n discovering the greatest number of "Boners" during the evening is rewarded a prize based on the following points:

We must find some other place for our public speaking classes. Our debates, too, take away from the "atmosphere" of the Chapel; so do our oratorical conteats. Even parts of our morning Chapel exercises might have to be abbreviated if we are determined to keep the sacred atmosphere.
