Now that the location of the post
office has been changed we no
longer have any reasonable excuse
for walicing across the campus.
Heretofore when the snow cleared
away early in the spring we were
greeted by an ugly narrow path
across the campus which up to
commencement time could not be
effaced. All manner of mass meet
ings and indignation speeches could
not keep the students off the cam
pus except during brief occasional
moments. Wire fences and signs
were of no avail. The only prac
ticable remedy has been applied and
from indications the “crossing-the
campus’ ’ evil has been greatly over
We are not perfect, either indi
vidually or collectively as an institu
tion. There are chances for im
provements everywhere about us
but very often these improvements
are never made unless a gentle re
minder be given. The Collegian
has thought out a scheme. We are
introducing a new department in
which we will include from week to
week a few hints which we hope will
be taken in the spirit in which they'
are given. For want of a better
name we are labeling this depart
ment “Kicklets.” We will cheer
fully receive from students any sug
gestions which effect the well-being
of the college.
Probably some will contend that
that we are assuming a rather bold
and dictatorial position in conduct
ing a department of this nature. In
reply we will say that we conscien
tiously believe this is about the
most effective manner in which a
college may improve itself. If any
one chooses to regard us in the light
of “knockers” let him consider that
we mean well and that we have the
prosperity of the institution at heart.
Here are a few “kicklets” for
this week:
A clock in the library would be
If a bell in the Engineering build
ing be electrically connected to that
in the lower hall of the Main Build
ing there would be less confusion at
beginnings and endings of periods.
A permanent pavement across
College Avenue to connect the walks
in front of the Engineering Building
and the Hotel would be a conven-
ience, especially when the streets
are in a muddy condition
