these mass nmetings. But thoey were not
as potent a factor as this daily.unncon-
venticoal metng of large crowds in
the postoffice. The closing of the post-
office in thoc evening ths brings to a
sudden end one of the University's best
established custons.
Many are the stirring scenes that have
in years gone y een eacted in the
postoffice. Probably the ms exciting
of these occurred in 1879.
In 1879 occured something of a sen-
sation over what appeared in the nes-
papers under the ominous hleading, A
Riot in Ann Arbor."
The evening mails from the east and
from the west reach Ann Arbor at about

ix o'clock ; between half-past six and
half past seven the largest numher of
students visit the postoffice. Until 1882

the postoffie was a very small and in- M ENSWegt1Oacs
