Professor Hill is obliged once more to make a special request to Seniors, eligible for Commencement parts, to avail themselves of the privilege. Not only have the eligible men as a body shown their indifference, but among those who have failed to compete, are many of the most capable men of the class,- the men whose records have earned for them the best title to the honor, and the men to whom the class may look as its worthiest representatives.

It is perhaps useless to attempt to stir up members of the graduating class, as if they were Freshmen, to a realization of their opportunities. Every man in the class knows that to deliver a Commencement part is a valuable personal experience, and a service to '97; and every man who is permitted to come forward, but fails to do so, simply gives way to his natural inertia.
