Parted in a Dream.
This new song is a charming story
of the parting from his sweetheart of
a brave American soldier, who fell at
Santiago de Cuba. He appeared to
her in a dream, the instant of his
death, and in the parting, asked her
to wear for him a rose in her hair,
that lie might surely know her when
she came to meet him. The song
contains a beautiful sentiment that
makes one wish to take it home with
him. The words and music were
both written by Halbert L. Hoard,
of Fort Atkinson, Wis., a son, by
the way, of ex-Governor W. D.
Hoard, of Wisconsin. The song (re.
tail price 50 cts.) may be ordered of
him or of Ann Arbor Music Co., or

The coming meeting of the senior
class will be a very important one
for several reasons. It will be the
first business meeting of the class
and the recently appointed commit-

called upon to decide upon continu-
ing the custom of wearing caps and
gowns. The important question as
to what manner of memorial should
be established will also be discussed.
Every member of the class should
be present to help in establishing the

"It is beyond the comprehension
of an old fashioned sportsman, ac-
cuistotied to see athletic contests take
place betwee6 certaiii unersities as
a matter of course antil witlut fuss
or feathers, why it should be such a
difficult matter to agree upon a time
and place for a boat race if all the
parties really want one. That this

Harvard and Cornell would have
further to travel, in any event, than
Yale, a geographical axiom. There
is considerable room for argument as
to which offers the better water for a
race course, the Hudson at Pough-
keepsie, or the Thames at New Lon-
don. I am more or less converted to
the proposition that the Thames is
the better water for training purposes
and the climate in New London
better, for the same purposes, than
that of the upper Hudson. From
the old grad's point of view-the ob-
servation train-there can be no com-
parison. A better view can be ob-
tained from the edge of the course
than from the edge of water-covered
flats and behind rocky promontories.
I am also iichined to favor a straight
course over uniformly deep water as
against a crooked one, partly in deep
and partly in shallow water. But,
when all the pros and cons have been
canvassed, there remains the thing
without which it is not worth wast-
ing brain tissue-the desire for a
race. If there be that, what does it
matter where the race takes place?
The business of wrangling for months
over the place where the race is to
come off is not edifyiig. Why not
submit the whole thing to arbitrators,
agreeing to abide by their award and
to row wherever they say? Come,
cone, gentlemen, we want a little
less diplomatic manoeuvring and a
good deal more common sense."-

The Fruit and Flower Mission
dance which was to have occurred
Friday night has been postponed.
The committee when it made the
arrangements was unaware that the
date it settled upon was the one pre-
viously selected for the Michigan-
Pennsylvania debate. When the
conflict of dates was noticed, the
committee very kindly agreed to
postpone the dance for one week. It
will be held on March 10.
