The same spirit of Work and de
termination that has always been
characteri.stic of the Philomathian
Literary Society is vei-y much in
evidence now. There seem.s to be
a stronger determination than ever
to make this the greatest of all
years to the society.
Since he beginning of the semes
ter the work has been moving along
fine, but the approach of commence
ment seems to have given it a new
impetus. The society is eagerly
awaiting its arrival.
The meh chosen to represent the
I'Mlomathians at commencement are:
E. F. Baker and James Baley, de
baters; Edward Harrel, Raymond

Calls It A Difficult
Problem to Settle
. Ihere are two sides to every (jues-
tion. It seems that the Mars Hill
public has received only one .side to
the question of “bumming.” It i.s
certainly not as bad as it is' painted.
Of all the reasons for its defense
three stand out as the most impres
sive. They are: for the fun, for
economical pui-poseg, and for acquir
ing the art of getting acquainted
First, the fun. It is true unadul
terated fun for a real red-blooded
American boy to take the chance or
reaching his destination v>n time. Ev

oves to tr.\- his luck.
