usual experience, and we had the privilege of get-
ting away from our local ideas and looking at our
school problems from a new angle. His own ex-
ceptionally clear and sincere answer to all questions
of campus life, grounded as it is on the establish-
ment of higher standards of personality, b-other-
hood, and service, gives us another and better way
of looking at some of our daily perplexities. He
has shown us that a faulty, selfish, and short-
sighted attitude is the crucial point we must at-
Frankly we were surprised at the quality of the
poetry which is contained in Whimsies' first printed
issue. We did not have any idea that there were
people on the University campus who were capa-
ble of turning out anything like the truly good
poetry which this number carries. The poems are
more delicately fanciful, more carefully finished
and more worthy of 'attention than many of the
contemporary attempts which appear on the pages
of the better type of literary magazines.
The 'editors, on their own initiative without any
finanical aid whatsoever, put out the first two num-
bers in response to what they considered to be a
definite need of the student body. Neither the Gar-
goylt which is predominately humorous, nor the
Chimes which is primarily a serious magazine de-
voting itself to campus problems, offer a chance for
publishing purely literary efforts which depend for
their appeal solely on their literary quality. Whim-
sies is designed to do just this. It happens that
this issue is composed wholly of poetry; but in fu-
ture, stories imaginatively conceived will be just,
as welcome as poems.
Whimsies is ia gratifying attempt whatever be
its result, success or failure. It s ows that 4the
older desire for self-expression through the me-
dium of prose and poetry, which many claim has
passed in American universities, is still a potent
factor in the lives of some of our undergraduates.
The growth of utilitarian education with its stress
on practicality has not succeeded in completely ob-
literating appreciation of the lighter fantasy which
is to be found in the delicate nuances of poetry.
In the past there have been scattered attempts
to do the thing which the editors of Whimsies are
doing now. Generally the publications so founded
have lasted for a year or two and then disappeared.
Whimsies is deserving of a more kindly fate.
Undoubtedly the little magazine will be criti-
cised adversely, worse.still it will be tolerantly pat-
ronized by those' who never see ability until it has
,been recognized by the accepted critics. In spite of
this ewe are convinced that Whimsies has talented
contributors well .worth reading. We wish them
success in their attempt to establish a literary mag-
azine which has no "serious" end in view other
than the printing of first class poems and short
