sHE system of vacations at the University of Georgia is f(M || open to criticism. The summer vacations begin entirely too late in the year. Commencement at the University now occurs at a late period in .the summer, instead of being held in the latter part of July; it should occur not later than June 15. By having Commencement so late in the summer the college work is crowded on us in the hottest part of the year. It is entirely too hard on students to make them do their hardest studying—learning final examinations—in the hot weather.
The Pandora desires to suggest to the Trustees (we mean those who take enough interest in the University to attend the meetings) that they investigate this matter, and see if Commencement cannot be held sometime in June, and if necessary open the University in September.
We ask the Trustees to consider this if they do nothing else.

.EARLY every first-class college in the United States, except the University of Georgia, possesses a gymnasium of some kind. We all realize the necessity of securing a gymnasium, but seem to be at a loss as to how we shall ever make our hopes accomplish anything. One fact may be considered as certain, the State will not aid us— for if they have any money to put on the University it will go towards repairing the edifices which now adorn our campus. Matters may be simmered down to this point—we must erect a gymnasium through contributions, or not at all. Now, what is necessary more than anything else, is to start a fund —the University Gymnasium Fund. Let this fund be started both with contributions and money that can be made otherwise.
This fund once started, will in the course of time, if we push matters by soliciting aid from alumni and friends of the University”, be the cause of collecting enough money to build us a respectable building.
This plan that we have suggested is easily talked of, but can only be carried out by hard work. It will be difficult to imagine the material aid the University of Georgia would realize by making this proposed institution a reality.
In conclusion let us make an effort in this line. If we do not collect enough in a year to erect this building, no loss will .be felt. A new committee can be appointed year after year, and we opine that, by untiring efforts, if we do not succeed in a few months, we will do so in the course of at least two or three year.
Who will start the ball in motion ?

|E think it our duty to say something in The Pandora concerning the needs of the University of Georgia.
The greatest need that to-day stares us in the face is, the need of money to repair our buildings. Last winter a committee of the Georgia Legislature came over to see if we needed anything in the way of appropriations. The Legislature is always very kind to appropriate anything in the way of money to repair our buildings, but it is very hard for them to be convinced that we need anything. After searching the campus thoroughly, they came to the conclusion that some appropriation was necessary, and recommended that the enormous sum of five thousand dollars be given us for repairs. As yet the Legislature has taken no action on the report. Five thousand dollars would hardly amount to nothing. Its benefit would hardly be felt at all. When we heard that this committee was to come, it struck us that we were on the eve of securing a good appropriation. But. our hopes as yet have amounted to nothing. We hope they will in the dim, distant future. The University of Georgia, one of the oldest institutions of learning in the Union, should be cherished by our people above any institution in the State. That we need a heavy appropriation no one can deny, not even the cranks who hate us can deny it. We ask our friends, and alumni of the University, throughout the State, to speak a kind work for us, and in voting for men who will be selected to a position where they can aid us, to sound them and see whether or not they are the friends of the University of Georgia. We want to see the day when the Georgia Legislature will not only be willing but glad to appropriate money to our renowned institution. To this, friends and alumni of the University should come to the rescue. By an effort on their part we could soon have matters in such condition that our worn out domitories and weather beaten buildings would be turned in to attractions.
So we say, friends and alumni, help us, work for us, and our success in securing good appropriations, which are so much needed, will be assured.
