THE COLLEGE WORLD.
The Girton Review is the name of a journal just established by the lady undergraduates of Girton College, Oxford.
The first lacrosse match of the season in New Haven will be played today between Yale, '84, and the University of New York.
The commencement exercises of the Columbia Law School will take place today. Chauncy M. Depew will deliver the oration.
The inter-collegiates coming in examination week is embarrassing. We believe that the same thing is true at Harvard. It remains to be seen which faculty is most considerate of its students - [Acta.
The admirers of lacrosse at Columbia are boycotting the Acta. This journal has been waging war against lacrosse, and now about fifty men have pledged themselves not to subscribe for it next year.
Today will be a great day for Yale athletics. The nine will play with the Stock Exchange in New York, the class races will take place on Lake Saltonstall, the '84 lacrosse team will play the University of New York at Hamilton Park, and the freshman nine will arrange a game with some one.
The Cornell Sun has a long editorial on the harm that Cornell suffers from the hands of those narrow minded persons who think that the fact that that college is not sectarian is conclusive evidence that it is not Christian. It says: "Cornell has a difficulty in the way of its development which few other colleges are troubled with. We refer to the hostile influence of the clergy. Sectarian preachers of all sorts, religions newspapers of every denominational shade, oppose us simply and solely because we are not denominational. It is their contention that the lack of an organic sectarianism here breeds irreligion among the students, binders their moral development, and sends them into the world like Richard, 'half made up.' They show no doubt whatever that we are a set of stubborn scoffers at the faith from a faculty of confirmed infidels to a freshman class of jeering sceptics." It is not many years ago that Harvard could have extended the hand of sympathy to Cornell. Fortunately, however, our "over-zealous brethren" seem to be growing sensible with the more liberal views of the age.
The Yale Association of Colorado have raised a considerable fund to aid studious youths from that State in acquiring an education at Yale College. The boys in the Denver high school have been told that the association will gladly pay the tuition of any of them who may go to Yale, and that to those deserving and needing it some other assistance may be given.

The Yale News, goaded by the fact that its Wednesday's supplement is decidedly not a success, and that it has received hardly any but unfavorable criticisms from the college press, gives vent to its long suppressed feelings in the Monday's issue of that most excellent paper. It says: "Now that the Record has spoken of it, we may be allowed to make some comments upon the howl of the Harvard advertising sheets as to Yale's wit, of which they claim our Wednesday number is the professed exponent. Evidently their disciplined memories do not recall what we declared to be our object at the outset. We said that we should endeavor to furnish pieces of a light and entertaining nature. They persist in looking for 'funny' articles - 'side-splitters' is their other euphonious name for it." The News adds that it is content to let the matter rest where it is, "for to our taste - depraved probably - light sketches are as satisfactory pabulum as warmed-over witty stories; in general literature to us Hawthorne is as entertaining as Josh Billings." The self-complacency with which the News compares its sketches to the works of Hawthorne is something grand and awe-inspiring.
