'Twas ever thus. Since the estab-
lishment of traditions at the universi-
ty we have become accustomed to see
them ruthlessly trampled upon by un-
feeling studes. But the last, or rather
the first straw came yesterday when
Don Quixote of Washtenaw bravely
strode through the peaceful waste of
State street, disporting upon his cra-
nium the first "hay lid" of the season.
No, no, gentle peruser, he had not
escaped from the psychopathic ward,
but was filled merely with the exu-
berance of spirits instilled by the
balmy zephyrs. He sallied bravely
forth defying the sacred tradition of
Straw Hat Day, to battle for princi-
ple and his life. He was battered but
still alive at last reports.

Loui' Eich, who represented the
university at the Northern Oratorical
Contest at Evanston Friday evening,
returned last night. The contest was

one of the hardest fought and closest
of the twenty-two meets since, the
conception of the organization.
Prof. T. C. Trueblood, in speaking
of the struggle, said, "Mr. Eich never
acquitted himself better than he did in
Evanston, and the first honors seenrr
ed to lie between the first five speak-
ers. The winning orations dealt with
topics of vital interest to the people,
and were full of human interest. Tak-
ing fifth place in a contest such as that
one was a distinct honor, and Mr. Eich
is to be complimented for his work."
