Ki'itor Courikr:- In tlie Tast issue of the Ann Arbor Courieh I noticcil au arlicle in reference to the rowdies wlio attend the open house, and muite the evenings there hldeous by groans, shouts, hisscs, cat-calls, und various otlier noisy emanatlong frotn theirgood-sized mouths, whicii arealded frequently by thcir hands and bet wlien the mouths seeui inadequate to deafen the audience 11 the seats below.
