Within the last fortnight several persons have seen fit to use the columns of the CRIMSON as a means of playing practical jokes on their class-mates. Notices of hour examinations and meetings have been inserted, which had no foundation whatever, and yesterday some practical joker inserted a special notice without any authority for so doing. There is absolutely no excuse for such nonsense; it exceeds the bounds of childishness, it is undignified and ungentlemanly. It has always been our policy to aid the students in every possible way by publishing notices of their meetings and other notices; and it is but a poor return to compromise us by such utterly idiotic practices. We appreciate a good joke as much as anyone, but there is such a thing as going too far, and we hope the offense will not be repeated.
