human desire to make a commodity
better, for the sake of an easy and a
pleasant selling,-to paint what it car-

facts less significant, to depreciate its
wares, on the demand of a private
interest. For you who are at the ports

Not Threadbare Yet.
A great deal has been so well said
concerning all phases of the anniver-
sary celebration just past that it is
like building on to an already com-
plete structure for us to add any more.
But a subject so significant, so virile,
can stand elaboration even at risk of
repetition. Though the show is over,
the spirit of 1912 is the same that al-
ways has and always will permeate the
university's citizens past and present.
Its appropriate events, its skillful
management, and its entire success,
are still vivid impressions in the mnids
of all those who witnessed the Seventy-
fifth Anniversary celebration.
One notable feature was the effective
showing given to student activities.
The Union Minstrels were the counter
pole to classic "Alcestis" and the base
ball games and costumed parade on
the "imaginary line" between. The
wonder is that more Commencements
are not featured by numerous under-
graduate representations. A more
feasible and effective way could hardly
be suggested for bringing home to the
returning alumnus the trend of college
activity than to introduce, periodical-
ly at Commencements, spectacles and
games by the members of the then
student body. There was much in
those informal, enthusiastic "stunts"
last week to bring back to the jaded
paterfamilias the "shining morning
face" period of his own life, and to
liven him up to the relishing of a
little joyful nonsense. It is to be
hoped that it will not be a quarter of
a century before undergraduates will
again jubilate wholesale with their
And it is to be wished that all com-
mencements, jubilees, reunions, and
anniversaries, may be conducted so
smoothly. An .instance of the clock-
work accuracy with which events fol-
lowed the schedule occured Com-
mencement morning. After marshal-
ling delegates, alumni, and seniors
from all sides and corners of the cam-
pus, instead of there being the almost
inevitable delays, it was just as the
prescribed hour of ten struck that the
crowds tooktheir seats in the pavilion.
The men on whom the brunt of the
management fell are to be heartily
thanked, especially Professor John R.
Effinger whose efforts as General
Chairman were untiring. To him and
to dozens of other faculty men in
every department is due gratitude for
the happy success that crowned the
