had: - xii moth balls. But the poor
malt wvho c.omes along, picks it up, and
instead of finding something worth
while finds only the stale, musty smell
of last year's hand downs. The func-
tion of an editorial is not to fill a col-
umnn, but to praise, to blame and to
suggest. As it is much more difficult to
praise and suggest than it is to blame,
an editor is therefore one of those men
w ho spend most of their time looking
for trouble. And he usually finds it.
But there is nearly always something{
on which to write an editorial. If there
is niot anything, then there is nothing,
and that is what we have chosen to
vrite today--nothing.
"It is appalling to look at the num-
ber of men in the University who do-
nothing, Men who have ability, but,
spend their days killing time, doing
nothing. Men who seem to have no ideas
of their own, who produce-nothing.
Men who take things ready made * * *
But men who give .the wvorld-nothing.
"Look at them in any lecture hour.
TFhey are either asleep or hunting ea-'
erythrough the morning's 'Prince'
for typographical errors. Look at them
in their rooms, studying, maybe, but
learning-nothing. Talking, perhaps,
but saying--nothing. Day after day
they shuffle through their bromidic ex-
istence, they travel the easy road of
,inproductiveness which leads from No-
where to Nothing * * * You can pick
nifty men in each class who do practi-
~ally everything done by that class,
and there are an equal number who do
absolutely-nothing. What is their val-
pie? Nothing. Yet, after all, they have
their place in the system of things;
,hey aire the ninth term in a rapidly
,onverglng series."

If the decrepit S. L. A. really wishes
