Already we have heard here and there some premature adverse criticism upon the new janitor system which seems to us to resemble the croaking of chronic grumblers. Doubtless there may be cases of genuine grievances, and with the sufferers from an such we sympathize. In general, however, the grumbling we have heard seems decidedly premature. It can hardly be expected that with but two weeks of trial the new system should work to perfection. It should certainly be accorded a fair trial before it is atterly condemned; if, after that trial, it proves inefficient, there will be time enough then to decry it. Young men are far too apt to find fault on the spur of the moment where no material fault lies; and college men most of all, perhaps, are prone to demand more than is their due. It certainly will not be amiss if the present system be allowed a little more time in which to show its good points as well as its bad ones.
