If the chief object of the Laurean editor's
is to make others happy, as he asserts, we
would suL'L'ost that application of obnoxious
names to ooutempoary editors is generally
considered, neither a source of plessitre to
any one nor conduct becoming a gentleman
and an editor. If we can not uphold the
credit of our respective societies in another
manner and by a triundly exchange of greet
ings and by refraining from unbecoming re
marks in reference to each other, we think
all communication between the columus
should cease till such can be dose.
The committees appointed sometime siuce
by the societies, te make arrangements for

other necessary arrangements. Ihey have

This beautiful building site under the artis

The Laurean editor by a remarkable con
lescensiou has concluded to make the lives
of the Eutaxians happy and their peace per
fecthe has assured them he will lift his
hat to them when he passes. As he re
sumes hit studies at the Uuivenity this
week, we hope the walk to the Univenity
will not be blockaded by young ladies desiring
to secure this boon, and that the Oregon pa
pen will not be tilled with acknowledge
ments ot his Kindness. nai a grand no
ble example he offers to posterity, the sacra-
fice of his pleasure to that of a few benighted
mortals, to whom he thus offers perfect bliss
and enduring prosperity. May blessings,
unnumbered, be showered npon him for his
unselfish care for the hapnyness of othen,
and may fate hold in store for him, a fitting
reward for his uutireiug devotion to the
cause of humanity.
It is earnestly to be hoped by the many
friends of the Oregon Ktate University, that,
at the next regular meeting of the board of re
Knts, the present arrangement for granting re
duced rate tickits to students, will be modified,
as to admit of some discretion in regard to the
time of presenting the certificates, necessary
for procuring such rates,
As it now exists, these certificates must be
presented to the asjents the very day they are
dated, nr else they are void; not only Is the
time nf presenting these certificates limited but
even the time of issuing them is specified.
The present arrangement virtually dnntrnvs
Henry Villard s propnmition, and utterly fails
to carry out the intentions either of that be
nevolent benefactor,' or those of the present in
