THE Williams Athenaeum is devoted mainly to sarcastic allusions to the Faculty, who, it seems, have been treating the luckless students with great severity. Four Freshmen have been suspended for "'putting a wall between themselves and a college officer,' i. e. tossing ball by East College, and running when they saw him coming." The Glee Club, too, in order to pay off a debt, had arranged to give several concerts in the neighboring towns; but the permission of the Faculty was at first flatly refused, but finally was granted, with great reluctance, accompanied by a reprimand. The same august body has also forbidden all match games of base-ball, so that poor Williams, now that boating is dead, seems to be deprived of all healthful recreation.
THE Brunonian is exultant over the success of its nine, and is confident of winning the championship. The "transports of rage" indulged in by the pitcher, which were mentioned by the Advocate, are explained as being caused, not by the decision of the umpire, but by the bad base running of the player. The Athletic Association held its spring meeting May 22. There were thirteen contests, in seven of which the first prize was won by Irons, '81.
WE clip the following from the Vassar Miscellany:
"O tempora! O mores! A Freshman rejoices in a new dress with one hundred and fifty-five buttons on the waist!"
THE Nassau Lit. for May contains several very clever articles, notably one entitled "A Collegiate Smike," a character which appears, to a greater or less extent, in all our great universities. The writer graphically portrays the lot of the unfortunate being, concluding with his suicide, which seems, perhaps, rather too tragic an ending.
