WE think the Advocate's suggestion to change the Ivy Oration to a Tree Oration should meet the approbation of the Class. When it was discovered that the ivy planted near the Library served only as a bait to the white ants, ruthless hands were ready to tear down the offending vine, and no one seemed to mind the sacrilege. It would be very foolish now to revive ivy planting, -a custom which has nothing whatever in its favor. The exercises at the Tree, however, need additional attractions, and if we can have a bright oration at that time, - and there is every reason to believe we can have such an oration this year, -the rush of former days will have a worthy successor.
