The past few
Behavior in months,
the Auditorium. ing the presenta-
tion of various
entertainments and lectures, certain
factions of the student audience
have indulged in practices which
can hardly receive commendation.
It is a known fact that the com-
mencement of a performance is gov
erned usually by the timely arrival
of the audience. If the patrons are
tardy in coming, the performance
begins so much later. It was how-
ever the practice during recent
events, for the students to start a
system of applause, which savored
more of an audience of expectant
youngsters, than one composed of
so-called intellectual college men.
Another factor to be considered
in this discussion, is the arrival of
late patrons, and the untimely leav
ing of others. There is one re
quisite, which should be observed
at all times in a public function, and
that concerns itself with showing
courtesy to those who perform.
Nothing is more annoying than to
have disturbances just after the en
tertainment or lecture has begun,
and to have a commotion just be
fore it is concluded. Men who
have come in late, have slammed
the doors, and they have walked
down the aisles, as though they
were marching in a military review.
If a person, anxious to attend a
public function, for some reason or
other is late, he should at least
make it his duty to enter and find a
seat as quietly as possible—not as
though he were marching in a pa
rade, but rather as though he were
entering his home at two o'clock in
There is really no excuse for per
sons leaving before the conclusion
of a lecture. If you cannot afford
to stay for the evening, then do not
attend at all, because by leaving
early you discommode your neigh
bors, and at the same time you
disturb the lecturers or performers.
There is one qualification which
should be exemplified in a college
man above everything else, and
that is courtesy, and good-breeding.
These are probably more noticeable
in behavior in public, than at any
other place. It would be well if
the Auditorium audience would bear
this in mind, and thus allow the
Penn State student to betoken a
man, possessed of tact, courtesy,
BY THE WAY
The University of Wisconsin now
has two daily publications, one of
which appears each morning, the
other in the evening.
The University of Pittsburgh is
considering the advisability of
adopting the honor system; but they
will not content themselves with
any half-way plan, so a committee
has been chosen to investigate the
honor system of other colleges.
It is claimed that the students of
Harvard spend annually about
$lOO,OOO for tobacco, $75,000 for
drinks, and about $200,000 for,
theatres, suppers and taxis.
Five young Chinese students
have arrived in this country for the
purpose of studying in American
schools and colleges. All five are at
present in Washington, D. C., but
two will soon enter Yale and the
Massachusetts Institute of Tech
nology. The remaining three will
prepare themselves for college en
Interesting statistics on the
awarding of the Yale letter since
1852 have been compiled. Only
one man has won his letter in base
ball, football, track, and crew, while
thirteen men have attained it in
three sports during this period.
Only three men have won their let
ter in football and track, while only
one man has accomplished the feat
in crew and baseball in the same
year. As a rule the records show
that in the years in which the best
results were obtained by the teams,
the fewest letters were awarded.
Professor Migge, of Stanford
University, has discovered a
method of killing the microbes
which prey upon human hair roots.
He can make two hairs grow where
none grew before. He has also
discovered a poison which will
cause rats to die outside their hole
and has invented a process for
making buttermilk in powder form.
Of whatever importance these
latter discoveries are, we will not
attempt to predict, but in regard to
the first—what a blessing for those
learned college professors. By the
way, it will also revolutionize the
shampoo and wig industry.
At a Yale Prom held recently,
dancing was kept up until 11 a. m.
This beats all records for "long dis
tance" proms at Yale.
