are not familiar, with the whys and

do not doubt but that the authori

is so repugnant to us that we hope

was this: That each Senior class

remark that meetings for the pur

And there can be no doubt of the
truthfulness of the remark.. Giv-

'Tis true that some of the best
men of last year's team are not with
us, and the usual pessimist can be
found; but it is also true that good
men have returned; and with plen
ty of new material, we see no reason
why Auburn should not be repre
sented on the diamond. As yet, we
do not know how many g-ames the
Faculty will permit, but we hope
that we may be able to meet most

that has gone before and leave noth
insr to impress or remind those
which come after them. We know
of no plan to prevent their sinking
into oblivion other than that pro
posed by the President; and we
would be glad to see the present
class establish the precedent by
erecting a monument or bronze fig
ure upon the campus, or by placing
a memorial window in the Chapel,
or even by placing a tablet in
the Memorial Hall. The last on
account of its cheapness, would
doubtless be the most desirable
method. Let some man be selected
who has been intimately connected
with the history of the State and
University and erect a tablet to his
memory. In this way could the
different classes honor our dead he
roes and at the same time secure
their names to posterity.

The January Sermon.
The Y. M. C. A. has been fortu
nate enough to" secure for its Janu
ary sermon, .which comes off the 17,
the Rev. II. P. Chreitzburg, of
Reidsville. Mr. Chreitzburg is one

speaker. He, will ' be greeted, no

At a recent convention of school
superintendents and principals held
in Austin, President Winston, or

on the relation of the Univer

the mission of the University in the
State. The convention, by a rising
vote, unanimously adopted the
following resolutions, introduced by
one of the strongest, most scholarly
and most successsful of our teach
ers, Professor Jacob Bickler:
