Night Editor--Maurice Toulme.
In a recent issue we protested edito-
rially, with more or less vehemence,
against the locking of the doors and
blocking of aisles at a series of lec-
tures in Sarah Caswell Angell hall.
Subsequent investigations have reveal-
ed that all the doors were not ;locked
nor were there chairs in the aisles all
of the time. Be that as it may, a main
exit was locked on one occasion and on
another chairs were placed in the
Experience has shown that it requires
either a terrible catastrophe or unusu-
ally strong language to call attention
to the lack of proper exits to a public
auditorium. Exits by French windows
onto a porch the railing of which is
eight feet above the ground are, not
sufficient. Exits from the back of a
stage several feet above the auditorium
floor onto a sloping running track are
equally dangerous. Those who had ex-
perience in the Iroquois Theater disas-
ter in Chicago, saw hundreds of charr-
ed corpses packed into the corner of
stairways when there was no obstruc-
tion but a turn. Hundreds more were
packed against doors that opened in-
ward and doors that were simply barr-
ed on the inside, when under ordinary;
circumstances they could be instantly
The authorities in charge of Barbour
gymnasium are not to blame for tire
arrangements of exits. Petitions have
been presented to the Regents in years
past asking for fire-escapes foi the
hall. Nothing was done. The ,peti-
tions should be renewed and they
should be pushed. In the meantime it
is the duty of the authorities to see to
it that all exits are open and aisles
The girls who signed the petition
protesting against the conditions are to
be, commended for their stand. Inci-
dentally, we wish to express our ad-
miration of their display of nerve. We,
doubt that 147 men could be found'
with sufficient temerity to sign a peti-
tion which might in any way be con-
strued as reflecting upon their dean.
THE NECK OF THE WOODS
COUNT OF KILLARNEY
Don't you think it kind of funny
That when you put up the money--
To buy a bugle and send away a band,
That whatever there remained,
The Student Council claimed,
Just for themselves.
Ain't it funny?
Don't you think it kind of sad
'When the man who's baseball mad
Has laboratory every afternoon;
While the dub who doesn't play,
Has his afternoon each day
To'play bridge whist.
Ain't it funny?
Don't it nearly make you pass
When the guy who's really fast
Gets conned and thrown off the team.
While the man who won't get out,
Puts the faculty to rout,
With startling marks.
Ain't it funny?
So it does no good to buck,
It's the winner has the luck,
And the man who deserves it doesn't
But what's the use of fussing,
Take your lotand quit your cussing.
But we remark.
Ain't it funny?
