The Editors and Business Manager of the FREE LANCE say so too. (Ex. Ed.) The Hampden-Sidney Magazine says in its ex change: "We regret to see an editorial lament ing the decline of the literary societies. The plague seems to be spreading north and south, east and west, from the accounts of our exchan ges." We are very sorry to say that the plague has reached State College and if the literary so cieties do not take a brace in two more years we will be lamenting their death, COLLEGE CORRESPONDENCE. Four cribs in his pocket and three on his miff, Some formulas, rules and other small stuff Tucked up his sleeves with the stolen test, A text book buttoned beneath his vest And bookish chum near to assist him, Behold the effects of the ranking system.
