| Question cf Holdng Commence

Faculty Decision Would Leave
Deserted Campus and
(By a senior.)
With the facility decision against set
| ting commencement up a week staring
I them in the face, the Senior class is
| desolate. Every member is a committee
j of one to look around for possible help
1 in the situation. At present, however,
that help seems far away and the weeks
are growing fewer and fewer.
With no particular argument either
f for or against the recommendation tak
en in by the faculty committee that
commencement be set forward one
week, thus making it possible for the
seniors to be graduated while there
were still some signs of human life
on the campus, the recommendation was
turned down. As a consequence, mem
bers of the class have little interest
left in their graduation. particularly
since the latest training camp authoriza
tions will take a number of the already
| pitifully small crew of men which grace
: !ts ranks and tear up its class meet
Would Upset Class Work.
The faculty reason for refusing the
request is that it interrupts the regu
lar routine of class work for the under
classmen, makes it necessary to make
out two whole sets of examination ques_
tions, and cuts the year for seniors
even shorter than it already is. It was
pointed out to the committee that
should commencement ceremonies be
held on a totally deserted campus, very
small interest would prevail even among
the seniors themselves, since practically
everyone is more than anxious to got
at work of one kind or another. The
mail carries diplomas just as it carries
checks from home. As for the girl's
viewpoint—many of them also will work
this summer, and commencement loses
its chief dignity and charm when it be
comes purely a personal matter.
Sunday Exercises Unpopular.
The changing of commencement ex
ercises proper for Sunday night is like
wise meeting with disapproval among
the class of ’IS. It was suggested in
meeting but was not discussed fully at
nil and on more mature thought the
seniors are seeing the disadvantage of
the idea. The number of relatives and
alumni in attendance will not be great;
the plan crowds a formal commence
ment and makes of it a high schoolish
affair; the next day will be “Blue Mon
day” and, after all, exercises held on
Sunday night will not greately facili
tate the departure of the seniors—that
is the feeling.
There is at present a tendency in the
class to bring the whole question up for
consideration again, and after confer
ring with various faculty members, it
is believed that some more satisfactory
arrangement can be found for the com

There will he no track meet this Junior
Week-end f )r the first time in several
years. The University of Washington
backed out of their contract to send
a team, pleading that they were so de
void of track talent ns a result of the
war that they could not find enough men
on the campus to make up a team. There
was some talk of another meet with
O. A. C., but this has been dropped. The
doughnut meet also has been abandoned,

campus that such a contest would have

sufficiently this week to give the Var

was a loose uncertain affair, and it is
not much to their credit that they cap

Kruger will have to improve about
100 per cent if he expects to win one
of the games here. He was hit hard
