The small blaze that occurred
last week in one of the rooms on
the fourth floor of Old Main is a
warning to those who live in the
dormitories. The carelessness of
students in use of matches and the
disposal of cigarette stumps is so
great that it is a wonder that alarms
are not more frequent. With such
well dried timber as the Main build
ing affords and with such draft as the
three large wells would provide a
fire gaining a small headway on the
second or third floors in early morn
ing would soon make a roaring fur
nace within the stone walls. The
fire escapes, three in number, are
as far from the students as possible
in the rear of the building and it is
doubtful if many know how to
reach them. Each floor is well
supplied with hydrants and hose but
there is no system of fire drill to
assume their quickest and most ef
fective use in an emergency. The
incident of last week should furnish
food for thought along this line.
There seems to be a misunder
standing as to what constitutes a
subscription to the State Col
legian. In former years the
Dance was sent to everybody and
the acceptance of the copies at the
post office was considered the same
as subscribing. This method work
ed well as far as getting a large roll
was concerned but not for getting
the money. Accordingly the new
publication was issued to all stu
dents for the first two issues and
notices were inserted asking for
your subscriptions. The third num
ber was sent to subscribers only.
We MUST have your subscriptions
but under our terms of payment
you must have your name enrolled
at a definite date. The work of
the business managers can be great
ly facilitated by your co-operation
in the matter. Mail your name,
drop it in the door of 323 Main, give
it to one of the editors or business
managers, but above all do it at
