207 ST. JOHN'S nearly to the close of the,one-hun- dred and ninety-ninth year of the in- stitution's existence, and that we must take up our editorial quill and make therewith our little valedictory. Others before us have vacated the chair, some with sad words of part- ing, others with joy for a freedom gained-our's must be one of mingl- ed gladness and regret. We shall- not, in our closing columns, attempt to explain why the COLLEGIAN has not done what it anticipated, we leave that to our kind readers. Our errors have been manifold and our feelings great in number, but we ask for com- passion for these, our many short- coniings. Our experiences as college editors have been of a most pleasant sort, and we realize that the most joyous phase of college life is draw- ing to an end. We have endeavored to make the COLLTEGIAN an impetus to healthy college spirit and enthusiasm and a means for the cultivation of the stud- ent's powers. Our criticisms upon some of the most prominent college reforms have been given in a spirit looking to the betterment of the ad- vantages of St. Johnis. lt cannot be denied and the student of years to come will find that some of these must be recognized for the good of education. To the editors of the class of '96, into whose hands we give this prec- ious charge of our Alma Mater, to them we must express our best wishes for their success. live know the-ni to be men of earnest purpose and great Capacity, and we shall he-pe to see 9 COLLEGIAN. . I emanate from their combined efforts a better paper than any of its prede- cessors. 'Stern purpose and constant application will -enable them to ac'- complish much more than we have done. So may success be .theirs and their success that of St. Jrohn's. ,May their misgivings and trials be not so great as ours, who now abandon those cherished desires and all that might have been, and as gracefully as pos- sible-now step down and out. i We would take this last opportun- ity to urge from our lowly, station, that new effort be made to rapidly in-. crease the endowment fund of the college. At its inception the pros- pects for a large fund were very great. No' one can, for a moment, doubt or deny the claims of St. John's' for aid in her upbuilding, Standing as she does, the descendent of the iirst free school on the North American Continent, the sturdy spirit of sound education then im- bued, has remained with her to this day. With a curriculum well wor- thy of her history and position she merits the earnest support of all promoters of education. A glance over the long list of her departed sons, suffices to reveal the good she has done the commonwealth by training and lnstillinginto the minds and hearts of the illustrious sons of Maryland and thenation that received their education within her walls, principles of justice, honor and patriotism for their guidance in the adairs of state.
