Editors U. 0F hi. DAILY:
We notice in yesterday's DAiLV an
article entitled, "A Medic'Scrap,'
between the '93 and '94 medics,j
which was evidently written by a
sophomore. Thse writer of this does
not think that such''"rushes'' are at
all creditable to the institution, or
a subject to be set forth in the pub-
lic press, but there is such a thing
as "forbearance ceasing to be a vir-
tae,'' especially when a class will
usurp the rights of others and en-
tirely ignore a time-honored custom;
viz, that upper classmen shall have
the proference in the choice of seats.
They would not even submit to a
compromise, whereby they were al-
lowed one-half the front seats. The
present junior class has always rec-
ognized the above custom and given
way to upper classmen.
The writer of yesterday's article
says, "A '94 man took a seat on the
junior side of the building.'' When,
pray, was such a division made, and
if made, what right had a sophomore
to force his way to the front and de-
liberately jump on a junior's back
in his attempt to get a front seat,
when that seat was already filled
We are not aware that any money
