When a fellow enters coll ege, he ;s sti li e lated over his recent CODluest- graduation from high school. (t seems to me that "hell week" was instituted mainly for the purpose of 'mpressing the Freshman with his inSignificance. But--the phrac:-e "hell week" should be taken literally and not extended through the first three o r four months of his freshman career. The upper-classmen undoubtedly go beyond their bounds in attempting to ;how the ir superio·ri t y . Their pa~e rnal caresses come at too f r e'luent lntervals. If we are to retain that ancient and sacred custom, let it extend only as long as the phrase indicates. The freshmen of today are the upperclassmen of tomorrow. We must not enter nc'zt year with the spirit of resentment for our ill treatment by so-called upperclass sup~riors and wreck our vengeance on the freshmen-to-be in our attempts to get at the "seat" of their troubles. Jim Crowley: I see no reason why this traditional week should be abolished. It . is . . . enerally understood by freshmen entering college that at some time, or another they will be subjected to an iniation. Instead of dragging the initiation out over an indefinite per;od St. Viator College has chosen a more r easonable method ,to "ride" 'i.ts freshmen.
