N OW that the class games are over and done,
.N with, we wonder why every year the so-called
class spirit has to take such destructive forms of
outlet. Last year the Student Council, hoping to
recoup from class funds, paid to have windows
leaned of the posters pasted around town by the
sophomores. The two years before that found bills
payable for new ropes for the flagpoles where the
two underclasses had hoisted their banners with
hammner and nails. This year, the sidewalks of
the campus are smeared with paint in prominent
places, gaudily proclaiming Yea '35" or, more
simply, "34."
The class spirit might better be diverted into
the garnes themselves. A great deal of money has
been expended in attempting to make this campus
one of the more beautiful in the middle west, and
to have painted numerals glaring forth from be-
tween white marble columns certainly does not
add to its material beauty Such outbursts on
the part of classes are more for the purpose of
display than for stiffening class spirit or obtaining
a large number of turnouts for games. The paint-
ing of sidewalks and buildings is certainly not a
necessary adjunct to class rivalry. Can't we do
away with it now that we allegedly have much
more sophisticated freshmen and sophomores to
deal with ?
