Columbia, Princeton, and Yale have been chal
lenged by Harvard to a team race of one mile,
four men to constitute a team, each man run one
quarter of a mile. Team races have been very

substantial way, they can do so with little trouble.
They can be of as much benefit to the college as
victorious foot and base ball teams, by simply
taking a firm stand in a class meeting on hazing,
refusing, as a class, in any manner to encourage it
next year. This is simply a matter of loyalty to the
college. There may be some in the class who are
so blind to the feeling of the people in regard 1 to
this matter, and so ignorant of what constitutes
true fun as to believe that there is romance and
fun in hazing. Let such, however, yield their
views for the time and be loyal to the college, and
willing to sacrifice for its sake whatever gratifica
tion they may imagine to be in hazing. Let the
class think upon this also, the most practical of all
practical considerations, that, under the new regi
ment hazing “doesn’t pay.”
We take the following paragraph from an edi
torial in the Nassau Lit. on college exchanges:
“Nor is there any reason why a magazine, no
matter how great its importance, should sit for
ever on a perch and see others go by. The larger
magazine can feel no loss of an exalted majesty by
recognition of a less important exchange, any
more than the younger exchange can feel that its
criticisms on a more pretentious paper are not
fully appreciated. No paper is too great to refuse
to aid and notice a smaller exchange, as no paper
is too great not to wish to be recognized by its ex
changes. Every college editor knows that one of
his greatest pleasures is the perusal of the ex
College Exchanges have a most important func
tion in bringing their college into notice, in mak
ing one college know another, and in establishing
a friendly relationship which must in turn have its
influence in increasing literary endeavor and en
hancing the college standard.”
This indeed shows the true American spirit and
one which some of our other great college papers
would do well to adopt since it comes from one as
good as the best.
The Pennsylvanian gives us the following in
formation in regard to a new departure at Cornell
which will be of great advantage to teachers and
others who wish to take advanced work in special
