IN our correspondence column will be found a letter on the subject of substituting janitors in the buildings for scouts. We should not refer to the matter again, were it not for the numerous complaints of it we have heard expressed on all sides, making it our duty to notice it. Many men look beyond the mere inconvenience that they consider will inevitably arise from the change; they regard it as an infringement of their rights, and as such they demur. It looks to them like employing a retainer who will perform the function not only of scout and attendant, but also of a special detective. We are reluctant to believe that this is the case, for such a system of espionage would be opposed to what we had always supposed to be the spirit of the University.
