Of all other things the sclieme to build a gymnasium shoul'l not fail. When we tliink of the uumber of alumni, and Uie number who are directly intcrested it seems like cliild's play to raise the modest sum of $10,000 with wliich to erect a building to be used as a gymnasium. Kvery student now in attendance upon the university sliould drop a dollar into the fud to help it along, that lone would make over $1,600, or one-sixth of all that it is proposed to ralse. Then tlie alumni should interest themselves in their alma mater. There are some of them who could give several liundreds of dollars and never feel the gift.

This gift shows that the governor understands what so few farmers will .ï.luiii, tlüit it is the sous and daughters of the farmers who need this gymnasium more than any other class. They come here wlth etrong, healthy jodies, made so by out door exerclse and contact with the pure open air. They go iiito rooms, give up almost entirely pliysïcal exercise and work witli the brain is substituted for work with the hands. Any one who knows anything about the iiiman system knows that this is debili Utlng and will soon wear out the strong est constitution. A gymnasium will furnisli lor these very students what they 80 much need, and what they cannot now obtain, viz: good exercise and plenty of it. The gymnasium is not intended to take the place of study in any degree, but to give strength and vigor to the body that the brain may have more healthy action. Gov. Luce evidently understands this thouronghly and by giving his money to aid In the construction of a gymnasium, gives just so much to the good health, vigor and strength of the young men and young ladies who come here from the farm. Which class ompose nearly two-thirds of II those in the university. Among the books which he prizes hlghly the local -ditor of the Cocrikb lias two volumes made up of programs, etc, of both the university and high school, and of other dolngs that happened in this city In the days when he wa a boy. Among these Is Vol. I, No. 1, of The Univertity Independent, dated Novetn ber, 1861. It is a magazine of some 3 pages, and contains a number of excel lent articles, quite up to the standard o the average college publication of to-day JVhat raight also be of interest in stu dent circles ts the program of the "Burn ing of Mechanica, by the Class of '61,' also the program for the "Public Execu tlon of Mechanics, by the Class of 'G3,' and the ' Supenslon of the Physical Corby the Class of '65." These programs are potten up in a humorous veln, and are even now quite a curiosity to the average college student. Those were "wild nlghts," we very well remember, but were crushed out by the faculty with the las ineutioned program. In these volumes s also the "Address by Hon. Thomas M Cooley, and Poem by D. Bethune Duf'field, Esq., on the Dedication of the Law Lecture Hall," Oct. lst, 1S63. There is also a copy of the second Palladium. It was issued in 1860 and contaln8 24 pages. There are also several programs for "Junior Exhibltions,"- long since done away with- and also several "Commencement Exercises" programs for the different departments. "A General Catalogue of the Offlcers and Graduates from 1837 to 1864" is also to be found, as well as many other pamphlets and papers which tue owner values very much. Among the high school papers Is a catalogue containing the name of the assassin Guiteau among the pupils.
