A COMMUNICATION.

TO THE EDITORS OF THE MAGENTA: -

I hope, Messrs. Editors, that you will not decline to let one more growl about the same old subject, GAS IN THE ENTRIES, appear in your columns. I think I can recall some complaints on this head in last year's papers, but my staircase is as dark and gloomy as ever, after 6 P. M., and I continue to nurse the same number per week of broken bones and bruised joints. I pay $300 for the use of a small room for 38 weeks, nearly $8 per week, - a very steep rent, considering the building never cost the College a cent, and the rents are all clear gain. Now, if I paid a private person $8 per week for a room in his house, I rather think that person would consent to keep the entry brilliantly illuminated without any demur. When the College lets me a room for a certain time for a fixed price, it stands in the same relation to me as a private individual, and should not be so unjust as to refuse fair demands which a private individual would gladly grant. Right and Justice may at last triumph, but until that day I shall feel myself

AN OUTRAGED UNDERGRADUATE.
