needs of more than eight hun-
dred students. As a practical result,
any* person- desiring to make use of
that towel, without discomfiture and
risk of disease, must do so in the wee
small hours of the day. The rest of
the students,- particularly those ,who
have dressed hurriedly to make class-
es, face a truly non-hygienic dilemna.
They must either dry their faces on
that dirty towel, or else go unwashed
The barber shops, however, are the
chief offenders in this respect. Prob-
ably everybody knows in a more or
less vague fashion, the dangers inci-
dent to the pubtlic shaving mug, but
generally few are sufficiently impress-
ed, that they are willing to take no
chances with it. Several cases of the
contraction of offensive diseases in this
manner, have recently become public,
one of which was severe in its conse-
quences. True one shop advertises it-
self as a sanitary barber shop, and to
support its contention, regularly de-
posits its apparatus in a little heated
oven, filled with formaldehyde fumes.
But as a matter of fact, the sanitary ef-
fects of this method are psychological,
existing only in the minds of its pat-
rons; the results, as far as the germs
are concerned, being confined to a
change of atmosphere from the stale
chat of the barbers, and the frigidity of
an underheated shop.
At far less expense, a truly efficient
germticide could.be provided. Each of
the chairs might be furnished with sev-
eral sets of brushes, to be used alter-
nately, and a weak acid bath for
cleansing those not in use. In addi-
tion it would help matters to .thorough-
ly rinse the soap, before beginning a
new operation. Let the students who
frequent the barber shops suggest this.
At fifteen cents, the barbers cannot
complain that they are shaving on too
close a margin.

Recently, a leader in the movement
against the spread of infectious dis-
eases, who had never during his life
eaten a germ or a microbe, died of ap-
pendigitis. The irony of his plight,
however shrinks into insignificance,
when one considers the efforts of our
medical authorities, both of the univer-
sity, the city and the state, to realize
better sanitary conditions, and then
contemplates the fact that one of the,
most obvious agencies for the propaga-
tion of germinal diseases remains un-
Generally speaking, throughout the
campus, sanitary conditions have re-
placed unsanitary conditions. Only in
the law building and library is this
not true. Even yet, the authorities in
that department seem to con-
