weeks later. This suggestion seems to us to be a good one. At present the 3 ear begins much earlier here than at other colleges, and with only the advantage of enabling the football team to go into training so much sooner. During the warm, muggy weather which frecjuently prevails here in the first part of September, very little studying can be done, or even entered upon. This fact was especially noticeable this year; there was a general feeling of restlessness among the students, and little actual work of any value was accomplished before the ist of October. There is an old saying, " Well begun is half done, " which might well be applied to our studies, as it is evident that a term ' s work begun in an earnest, interested manner, will produce greater and more valuable results than if it is begun carelessly and half-heartedly. If the opening of the fall term were put off two weeks, the weather at the end of that time would be much more favoi-able to the recommencing of studies ; and while the number of hours devoted to recita- tions would be smaller, the amount of ground covered would not neces- sai-ily be lessened. There is no doubt that the students would appreciate the extension of the summer vacation. To many it would mean a better opportunity for working out their expenses, and we believe that all would come back in better condition to take up the work of another year. In conclusion we will not give, as have our predecessors, words of ad- vice to the new Index Board, for probably they would not be taken. Each Board of Editors has to " work out its salvation for itself, " and by its own efforts gain the knowledge and ability necessary to publish its volume of the Annual. Such has been our experience. For the benefit of the new board, however, we would suggest that hereafter the various associations and clubs which have full-page half tones in the Index shall bear the ex- pense of making their respective plates. This will result in making the book more of a college publication, as it ought to be, besides aiding the small classes of the next two years in meeting the necessarily large expense of getting out a good book. Laying aside all class feeling, we believe that every true college man should be anxious for the success of the Index, and we wish to do all in our power to aid the new board in the work which it has already entered upon. 162
