The Argonaut says: "If anything were needed to show that many of our college customs are fast dying out, the effort of '90 this week is a gure sign.

On being asked what the jnitial "W" stood for, he said that he had always been called Willie, and supposed hie name must be William. He was entered and graduated under this name. Now a letter is reoeived from him from a hamlet in Kentuky, stating that he has discovered that his name is not William, but Wilbur Thomas. But even of fhis hè does not seem to be certain, a in one place in his letter he says it is Wilbur Thomas, and in another Thomas Wilbur. But of one fact he is sure, his name is not William, and he wishes to have a diploma of graduation issued in his own name in place of the one he now has. The secretary has decided to issue the new diploma, but says thia is the first time that he ever heard of a man who really did not know his own name.
