Exerclses to be copducted bv Prof. Trueblood. Public Invited. Rev. A. J. Covell who is just completing a course at the Andover Theological School, has peen called to the Congregational church at Flint. Rev. Mr. Covell is a gradúate of the literary department, class of '7, having worked his way through the university; If he can cement the congregation of the Congregational church at Flint, he will accomplish more than than any minister has yct done, and a dozen or so have tried it within the past few years. The faculty of the University met Monday evening to hear whatever might be said by the three sophmores in extenuation of their conduct in kidnapping Evans the Freshraan toastmaster, and to receive the petltions signed by the various classes. After a somewhat protracted session it was decided to let the decree remain as originally made, and so the boys will remain suspended for one year. It seems like a severe puishment for the offence. But of course the people must be given to undcrstand that discipline will be enforced. "Will you teil me why George Ilaviland is so successful a manager?" was a question asked by a young gentleman of a Courier reporter the other day. "Certainly," was the reply. "He is energetic, always on time, and while others are sleeping he is around at the different newspaper headquarters talking honey and phllanthropy to the editors and reporters and gettlng hls interests before the people. In other words he hustles for success, and is shrewd enough to know where the source of success in the entertainment line Hes." It is astonishing how little college pranks grow into enormous crimes when they get around into the press of the state. In the recent attempted joke on the Freshmen there was no one put to the least physical discomfort, no malice, nothing that was of a seriou3 nature, and yet to read one-half of the press of the state one would think tliat a great crime liad been committed. The avidity with which some papers seize upon the least pretext to exaggerate everything that happens among the university students would be extremely ludierous were it not for the bad ïmpression given the people by such misreiresentation3. Here is a paragraph from the Webster correspondent of the Dexter Leader, that deserves to be read. It may have au lmpresslon on some youug men who are very thoughtless about mposing upon other people: Webster, you know, Is way back in the woods; very few people hore ever saw anyone of much importance but once in awhlie we bave a treal. We dld last Sunday. A "freshy" frorn the University cuino out to air liis shirt front and awe the ploddlng yeoiimnry who attend the little white church on Lhe corner. The minister dld not usk lilm into the pulpit but we think it was because he noliced htm too late In the clay. Thls young "gentleman1' produced a lastlng im)re.sMU)n (on the wall) by Hghtlng hls clgarette io the hall of the sanctuary as he passed out. The color of his craniological excrescence and that of the llghted end of the match were strikingly alike. There was soou a n illustration of "fooi at one end aud flre nt the other." Probably one of tlie greatest college events of the season will Le the production of the Latin play " Mienechmi of Plautus," which will be given in Universlty hall, on Saturday evening, May ülst, in tlie original tongue. ïliis will be the second time in the history of the University that a Latin play will be given, the other belng rendered in 18S2. The production of this play met the approval of the late Dr. Frieze, and was decided upon early in the year, and the present Soplioraore clnss were selected to glye it. Regular rehearsals have been held during the eutire winter, and it is said that the actors have reached that standard of excellence that leaves no doubt as to the wisdom of the plan. The costumes were prepared by the young ladies of the Sophomore class after a critical study of the classical inodels in possession of the University autborities. Special scenery has been paloted by Louis F. Feit, the seenic artlst In the Detroit opera house. The stage and scenery is already being got in ulnce for the occasion. THE PALLADIUM. Tliis yearly publication of the secret societies has novv reached its 32d volume, and escli year there is an endeavor to outdo the preceüiDg volume. The class of '90 will give its eflbrt to the public early uext week, and it will be one that they will justly feel proud of. The frontispiece is an elegant steel eneraving of President Angelí, and one of the best portraits ever published of this eminent man. Jiy the stimmary of fraternities we fiud that there are 25 societies in the University of which four are Sororities. There are 380 meuibers among the regular fraternlties and 55 in the Sororities, making a tot:il of 435 altogether. The general convention of one f raternity the Sigma Plii is to be held in Aan Arbor Jan. 3 and 4, 1891. The literary producttons will be reacl by the public and consist of an article upou President Angelí by Prof. D'Ooge, [iiwins by Miss Elsle, Jones, F. N. Scott, Sar:ih E. Satterthwaite.MissA.M. Young, and others, a paper upon Music in the University by Prof. Stanley, one upon The Llbrary by R. C. Uavis, also a sketch of Prof. Stanley, a History of the Visit of the Pan-Amerlcans, etc. Besides giving the name and residence of every student by classes,it gives nl 1 the college organizatións of every kind and description, with niembership. Has a full page picture of ttie Glee Club and another of the Banjo Club. Portraits are given of Profs. Stanley and Kelsey, with a paper upon the htter by Piot. Carhart. The illustrations are very profuse, some sober and souie exeeedlngly comIcal. The Bon-Bon department Í3 decidedly lnteresting, and these pages will probably be soiled more than any others in tlie book by the University students. Tliere will be 200 pages, the largest Palladium ever issued. ïho cover is to be white bsick with black sides and gold letteringand ornamants. The editors have been industrions and indefatlgable in their lahors, and will certalnly be richly repaid, for the book cmnot help hut be popular. It is a perfect beauty; a marvel of lovellDess.
