The new ' 'Undergraduate
Rule, ' ' conditionally ; adopted by
Yale and Princeton, and fully
adopted in the Foot Ball Associa
tion, aims at the exclusion first of
all who are pursuing professional
courses, and secondly of all who
have previously matriculated at
other institutions. Thus, at Yale,
Laurie Bliss will be excluded next
year because of his law studies,
and. " Green way because he was
once a student at the University
of Virginia. Yale has been the
prime mover, in introducing this
rule, with" the avowed purpose of
purifying athletics. In this we
must suppose she is honest but,
for several reasons, we think she
is maki ng a great mistake. . .
In the first place if athletics are
good for boys, they are good for
young men, they are good for old
men. We believe in the English'
idea that it is a good thing for;
men of all ages to engage in out
door sports. The body must be
taken care of by a young man of
twenty-two, studying law, as well
as a youth of eighteen, studying
trigonometry. Why not carry
the Yale policy further and draw
the line at school-boys and. say
that only among them shall out
door sports be fostered ?
What is there peculiar in law or
medicine or divinity that renders
it impossible to secure the purity
of athletics among their votaries,
while the boyish ' 'undergrad' '
may be relied on to do the right
thing ?. Will not the provisions
against professionalism, that suf
fice for the college student, answer
for the Univeristy men ?
Again it has been truly said
that the teams selected from the
undergraduate classes . of Yale
college can no longer truly respect
Yale university. A truly repre
sentative team must tie of the
best from all the walls of college
life. Beware how you strike such
a blow at true athletics. All hon
or to Harvard in that she abso
lutely rejects any such false
scheme as this.

y A REPLY.
Mr. Editor : There has been
an injustice done the Magazine in
the statements made in the last
Daraeraph of the article on the
"February Magazine" published
in your issue of March 2nd. -
was evidently misunderstood .as to
the facts in the case and so his
statements are inacurate and mis
leading. The impression pro
duced is that there was a 'personal
difference or difficulty between
the magazine Editor and one of
the members of the faculty and
that the former resorted to the
subterfuge of a cartoon that he
might "glorify" over the. latter.
Now this statement is very unjust
and places the Magazine editor in
a very unenviable light. There
was no personal element in i the
case and there has never existed
any animosity or . ill feeling be
tween them, but on the contrary
the most , friendly relations have
existed and do now exist. How
any one could think the joke in
sulting, is more than' I can under
stand. No caricature has ever
been inserted in the Magazine
without the previous knowledge
and consent of the party con
cerned. As to the point of the joke it is
not my purpose to explain - that,
but will only say if one cannot
see the joke, why, then, he must
be wanting in that side of human
nature. Neither is it my purpose
to discuss the appropriateness of
such caricatures. '1 am unable,
however, to see how the insertion
of a joke among the advertise
ments can detract from the digni
ty of the Magazine.
Such periodicals as Scribner,
Harper and the Cosmopolitan
have like caricatures and what is
more, the two latter put them
along with the main body of the
matter. - -
1 ms article is not written m a
controversial spirit, but only that
the facts may be known and that
justice may be done to all.

Cupid's bow is lying broken,
Fallen on the ground,
And his arrows all with blunted y"
Points are strewn around.
For to reach our modern hearts
Pow'rless are the blind god's darts, '
From his rosy shoulders stripped.
Since to pierce the breasts so cold
Boys must always be of gold,
Arrows must be diamond tipped.
Mr. Cleveland has again shown
his friendship for the south, by
the appointment ' of Messrs. Car
lyle, Herbert and Smith, to his
cabinet. The appointment of
southerners to the president's of
ficial family calls to mind the fact
that North Carolina and especi
ally the University of North Car
olina, had supplied to the cabinet
prior to the late war, some of the
most illustrious men, who were
ever called as aids to the chief
executive. Among them may be
mentioned, Geo. E. Badger, John
Branch , 1 82 9-3 1 , Janies C. Dobbin
' 53-' 57 and Wm.A. Graham 1 850--52
as secretary of the navy; J. H.
Eaton 1829-31 secretaries of war;
John G. Mason, secretary of
navy, secretary of state and attor
ney general of the United States,
respectfully from 1844 to 1849.

Brown 1857-59, post master gen

alumni of the University. Mr
Mason was a Virginian, Mr.
Thompson was from Mississippi
and Mr. Brown, from Tennessee,
all the rest were natives of North
Carolina. ' ; W. M.
Mr. W. G. Peckham, of the
New York bar, delivered an in

Class, in Gerrard Hall, last Thurs
day night. His subject was
"Four Cases Arising from the
Robbing of the' Northampton
Bank." The lecture was of spe

Mr. Beckham dwelt for some time
on the subject of negotiable pa

and we are always delighted to
have him, and hope that in the
future he will favor us with an

During the examinations at
Princeton this year the young
men will be placed upon their
honor. The faculty voluntarily
resolved to abolish the system of
scrutinization of its college men,
the plan meets with great favor
by the ; students. The student
who knows his professor is watch
ing for him to cheat if he dare,
is very apt to feel that the ques
tion of honor having been ex
cluded by the professor, there is
no disgrace in cheating. Ex.
