Of course there would be some who
would decry the decline of a sacred
institution, but we must not be so
narrow as to have any more sacred
institutions, and the West has already
proceeded far beyond that stage.

PUT- IN - BAY
Contrary to conflicting reports, the
University excursion to Put-In-Bay,
Ohio, returned Saturday almost as
scheduled. The accompanying faculty
members, having eaten their sand-
wich and hard-boiled egg at 11:30 in
the morning, were reported as ap-!
pearing wan and pale by the time the
buss returned with the last of them at
10:00 o'clock at night.
* * *
Lake Erie, out of respect to the
pedagogical dignity of the affair, was
serene and calm for the day.
BENEVOLENT ORDER OF ENGI-
NEERS AND MECHANICS
In addition to the delegation from
the University, the special boat to
Put-In-Bay, which leaves every day!
at 9 a. in., carried the annual mid-
summer excursion of the Benevolent
Order of Engineers and Mechanics.
During the intermissions on the
steamer the publicity men of the or-
der handed out reams of publicity to
the college boys, remarking therewith
that "You look old enough to be in-
terested in this;" thereby combining
subtle flattery and even more subtle
irony in the realization that that is
the most that any of the college stu-
dents will ever amount to.
BENEVOLENT ORDER HAS
In the literature given out by the
Benevolent Order of Engineers and
such things there was one page of
pictures of officers, another page'-of
officers nemes, a blank page, and a
page containing the information
"1920-1927." For a young organiza-
tion Rolls can recommend no more
adequately officered crew.S

BUT THE STUDENTS ALSO AREj
ON THE BOAT
But the students from the Univer-
sity were also on the boat. Some of
them were females; they all showed
a passionate interest i geology.
(This was a geology trip). In Lake
Erie several fish could be seen float-
ing by-dead. No doubt they hd
been hit by steamers such as ours.
Then everyone who was hungry ate
lunch and shortly thereafter the boat
docked at Put-In-Bay.
CAVES ARE SEEN
At Put-In-Bay there are three
caves. These caves are just satiated
with geology, so the serious minded
students of the delegation, led by
their intrepid faculty men, betook
themselves therewith. The caves were
very exciting, being damp and musty
and filled with electric lights and
guides. Before seeing them the dele-
gatts were forced to listen to a speech
by the faculty on how. they were
made. This was included free, and
was part of the price the students had
to pay for the reduced rates.
STALACTITES ARE FEATURE
The word that is misspelled at the
heading of this paragraph is what all
geologists look for in caves. Nearly
all of the stalactites had been broken
off the last time the geology class
visited the caves, however, and so
there were few good specimens. After

way, however, for the benefit of the
admiring throngs, the Rolls delegate
had more stalactites in his hair and
down his neck than the whole class
had gathered previous to that time.
The faculty, with a hammer, was only
able to break off a piece of strontium
sulphate a quarter of an inch square,;
also, while Rolls's assistant delegate
came out with a pocket full of four-
inch crystals. Rolls does not say this
to be boastful realizing that the com-
parison is with a faculty man.
BOAT ALSO RETURNS
After the caves the faculty an-
nounced that there would be a race
against time through the underbrush
around the edge of the island-those
who won would see a glacial groove
and make the boat back while those
who lost would see the glacial groove.
