Again the freshman in his eagerness for artistic effects in wall decoration has been led into error. We say the freshman, for we cannot suppose that anyone but the freshman could be heartless enough to commit the foul theft which we here condemn. The base-ball management with an eye to attracting the attention of ordinarily indifferent students, has as usual begun to print its posters announcing the inter collegiate games in gaudy colors. Hardly had the first lot of these effective placards appeared when they began rapidly to disappear long before the game was played, much to the annoyance of the manager. In his affliction, he immediately sought the ear of the CRIMSON editor, and asked that worthy paper to reprimand the guilty students who must have committed the crime. Believing, as we said in the beginning, that none but the thoughtless freshman could be guilty, we hereby visit him with this our censure. The manager of the nine is perfectly willing that these placards should be taken away as soon as the game which they announce has been played; but rightly considers that anyone taking them before the game, commits an act of petit larceny.
