The Maroon and Gold this year has
liad serious financial difficulties, regret-
able but seemingly unavoidable. Since
Christmas its publication has been ir
regular. It would have been necessary
to discontinue publication entirely ex
cept for the noble response made by
the student body. The students contri-
l)uted enough to put the finances in good
shape. This financial difficulty will con
tinue through this term, but next fall
-the new subscriiDtions should put the
Burrett Jolinson -vvas chosen by the
olass to liead the staff as editor. Mr.
Johnson is a popular member of the
Junior class. He is better known as
“Pussyfoot, Jr.” He has always evi
denced an active interest in the various
student activities, and his past experi
ence as jnanagiiig editor puts him in a
good position to serve as editor. In
Uie editorial department Mr. Johnson
■nill be ably assisted by Paul McNeill.
