No one can notice the improvement which is now taking place in the appearance of the yard by the sodding of old, worn out patches of grass without a feeling of satisfaction. Indeed the college has gone to a good deal of trouble and expense in so doing, and it would seem as if every one ought to be considerate enough not to cut across and tread upon the newly planted sod. Time may be precious with a good many of us, but the time saved by short cuts across the grass is not of enough importance to warrant the justification of the act. Paths have been made through the yard in every direction, and to tramp over the young grass and sod is a deliberate attempt to destroy the general good looks of the yard. For those men who have been seen treading down the new sod, we think that it is more the result of careless negligence than any delight they take in spoiling the grass. We trust a little more care in this respect will be shown in the future.
