Junior Editorial

The Class of '06 is the largest in the history of the institution. We are glad to say that we have passed our Junior year with much credit to ourselves, and have taken a prominent part in all the affairs of the University. We have made a specialty of causing disturbances and giving the Faculty all the trouble possible. When we first sat at the feet of our instructors we found them quite inefficient; they could tell us exceedingly little, but now, they are regarded by all as being as scholarly as the class.

As to our future work in the Seminary, we propose to study as little as possible and to spend our time in idleness and looking wise--following the example of our present Middlers and Seniors.

We take great pleasure in reporting that our work in the chapel has been of the very highest grade; we commend the Faculty for this happy hit. Outside the class room--which is really no test at all--we have had no other opportunity to display our talent.

No opportunity has been lost to criticise all of the Rhetoricals. We have carefully and soberly weighed the preaching ability of the Senior Class in the balance, and it is found wanting.

As to our manner of living, we are strictly hygienic; eat all we can get, sleep most of the time, and keep our heads cool and our feet cold. Unless food and fuel are more plentiful next winter we are planning to hibernate for the sake of economy and to avoid the unnecessary wear of body and mind. If the Senior Class has a better plan of economy than this it will confer a much appreciated favor by leaving it with us before going out from the Seminary. No class has been so noted for prying into things that do not concern it.

The Junior Class has very decided convictions of its own. We believe in dancing and theater going, per se; in cramming for "exams;" in nagging the professors until they agree with us. We do not discuss the Union Question unless it relates to matrimony. After careful investigation we are thoroughly convinced that the study of Hebrew is injurious to the mind and therefore recommend that it be ruled out of the Middle Course for '05 and the Senior Course for '06. It is distinctly understood that every Junior must be "up-to-date;" he must be a snob and believe in snobbery. He must be an expert in "cutting class" and "busting." When his grade is fifty he must act as if it were an hundred, and above all he must look like a preacher.

Hush--here are the Juniors of 1907; we must give place to them. Good-bye, old Junior room; within thy sacred walls we our teachers have met, and tried "to gather and treasure up all that they teach of virtue, of pure thoughts and kind affections, reverence for God" and for our fellow men.
