- All that has been said above has
been- from the standpoint of the stu
dent. Now, then,;suppose we con
sider it from the other standpoint, as
every suggestion has to be consideresl
.from both sides.
- In the first place, this would elimi
nate much of the inconvenience to the
libra-rians in having books returned to
the library after being out over night.
Secondly, the difficulty of securing a
night librarian could be easily ar
ranged, now that we have as one of
the assistants a student secretary. This.
office could be filled by one of the
boys, probably best, a Senior, or one
familiar with the arrangement of the
books, and thus afford a splendid op
portunity to some one to help make
college expenses, and also for at least
five nights oT the week (Saturday and
Sunday excepted), a quiet, warm place
A great deal more could be said in
regard to this matter, but this is suffi
dient to lodge the idea, and it is hoped
that this suggestion may secure hearty
support and results accomplished.

"Would you do it again.?" "I would,"
Then coyly without more fear,
"I issue," she whispered, "a call to
lie answered: ."I volunteer."

been received as a member of the

asked, "Do you drink pale beer ?" To
which Senior Sheppard's reply was,
"No, indeed, 'the old gentleman' buys
our beer in bottles."
