Pull Are not yet forthcoming but it is understood that the final examinations will be held before the Centennial week begins so that no electrons or microbes verbs parsimonious or dates historical May interfere with a full participation in the festivities of the occasion. It is probable that at nine o clock each morning students will meet in alphabetical sections for a Roll Call which will make it possible to announce fully each Day s program with emphasis on the events in which the student body will participate As such. The Centennial committee in announcing the tentative program for the Celebration has invited suggestions. It reads like a big week a Quot Cir a a us baseball pageant bands parades dinners dances the request for suggestions should bring Forth ideas that will result in a never to be forgotten week that will immortalize for generations to come the Indiana spirit of 1920. About a Hundred men attended the bean supper Given by the y. M. C. A thursday evening in the Reserve room of the cafeteria.

Let your banners Ever Fly from the outer Walls and keep emblazoned on them the motto Quot the Best is none too Good for Xii. Tell your friends that Indiana University has had ten presidents in its one Hundred years and of these four Are still doing splendid service for their fellow men a or. David Star Jordan who was president from 1884 to 1891, or. John m. Coulter 1891-1893, or. Joseph Swain 1893-1902, and or. William Lowe Bryan from 1902 to the present. The first six presidents were or. Andrew Wylie 1829-1851 or. John h. Lathrop 1859-1860 or. Cyrus Nutt 1860-1875 or. Lemuel Moss 1875-1884. As president Here. Or. Jordan inaugurated the elective system and gathered about him a group of faculty and students who have played important parts in the Fields of education science and numerous other activities. After leaving Here he made a Brilliant record As president of Leland Stanford University. Prom 1891 to 1893, or. Coulter ably continued the work of or. Jordan Here and As head of the botany department in the University of Chicago is recognized As one of the world s authorities in his special line. Under or. Swain s administration Indiana University had a rapid growth. In that time Kirkwood Hall Assembly Hall and Kirkwood Observatory were erected and the movement for the student building was Ina Gui ated. The finances of the institution were put on a firmer foundation by the passage of the fraction of a Mill tax. He is now president of Swarthmore College one of the prominent educational institutions of the East. Xin. Tell your friends that during president Bryan s administration the institution has gone Forward by leaps and Bounds and that the future is Bright with the Promise of still greater Progress. The attendance has increased from 1334 in 1902 to 4,000 a 1920 the income has increased from $129,761.01 in 1902 to $999,077.86 in 1919, but the present amount is still far too Low.

Xiv and finally Tell your friends everywhere to give themselves More and More to their Alma mater. In the language of Hail to old i. s to her whose name Well Ever cherish in our song Honor love and True Devotion. All to her i Ere is in reality no reason Why new resolutions should be made on new years Day. They could just As Well be put on record on december 23 or 28. But no one will do it then. The Only explanation seems to be that folks think the Days along towards the end of the year Are getting too frazzled out to stand up under the Strain of taking on the added Burden of a mess of resolutions. The thing to do with resolutions in to have the maker appear before a notary Public and Post a forfeit to be paid should his foot slip from the straight and Only. This would at least Benefit the notary Public who signed the document. From the registrar s office comes the report that Over Twenty five Hundred students Are now within the confines of the world s most Beautiful College Campus. A Safe Wager would be that Over Twenty four Hundred of them swore off something or other on new year s eve. Vacations Ai e All right but the trip Back to Bloomington is rather trying we must admit. The trouble with trips Back after vacations is that they come just when everybody else in the world has made up his mind to travel not to mention their suit cases and other impediments. The thing to do is to have College vacations when their Start and end won t interfere with the travelling Public. For instance we might have the University Christmas vacation come in late july. Then most of the summer tourists have gone West and still having Money Haven t started Home yet. For thanksgiving we suggest that the vacation be held during the first week in May. We mention this time in May because it comes just before the political primaries and there won t be Many people moving about. Food and vacations have considerable association. Last week was the first time we had tasted spare ribs in Many Many Moons. And then to blow in Here to dry Toast and weepy Coffee �?0�? in books we received several Fine volumes. One of them was Quot ladies Complete letter a writer Quot in two volumes bound in handsome lithographed paper and never sold for less than ten cents. Another was the Quot prospectus of the Havana Oil company of we Don t know who sent us this latter but it came by mail the Day after Christmas and was awful pretty. The third and last Book was a Whiz. It was named Quot half hours in the hero was called Quot Pithey Anthropol Quot or Quot Monk Quot for Short. Speaking about prohibition the government does t need to try to Stop the drinking of Wood alcohol it works automatically. Scene from the direction of the Day it was noticed that smoke was poor inf from the roof of the House Elliis seemed a certain symptom that there was fire somewhere in the neighbor Hood. Anyway an innocent bystander had the Honor of calling up the Blomn in ton fire department and hag him Crank up and run Down to see about the trouble. The fire department by using All his skill As a Driver made the three blocks in something under ten minutes and found not a Hoase in flames with screaming people at every windows but a harmless Little flue in the House next door taking advantage of the snowstorm to bum out and mess up the Beautiful whiteness with a lot of dirty soot. To quote again he maintains that Quot conjoined with its Electron the Ether particle May be said to have had a previous existence of a relatively quiescent sort but As a free entity it necessarily moves Forward with the velocity of Light carrying with it its own invariable Quantity of could the treatment of the subject be More Clear the masterful command of simple English is expressed in every line in almost every word. Near the Middle of the Book after the characters have unfolded the plot up to the Climax almost or. Very waxes inquisitive. He questions Quot if a Normal atom meets with another Normal atom having its Orbital electronic revolutions facing the same Way can the two unite into a Mold Cule with two satellite electrons either satellite being displaced towards the intermediate plane parallel to the two Equator and perhaps coming into equilibrium on opposite sides of a common orbit Quot placed in this Clear and concise style there can be no doubt As to the simplicity of the answer.

One of or. Gimbel s hobbies is that of helping boys of Talent gain a higher education. He has assisted through colleges universities musical and Art academic men who have become leaders in their professions. During the War or. Gimbel although Over the draft age made a number of attempts to enter some Branch of the service.

The Lincoln league. Democrats were mighty scarce in the Vicinity of the auditorium of the student building last night. Some of the followers of that political Faith even stayed away from the dance held in the same room later in the evening for fear they might become contaminated. But the Lincoln league started with a bang and decided to take part in the next election held in which both parties had candidates. There was no blood spilled for the reason noted in the first line of this paragraph but we bet the present administration would t have thought very much of itself if it had been around anywhere. Most of the men present were entirely non partisan maintaining that they would vote the Republican ticket under All circumstances. Which is a Good attitude. No one announced himself As a candidate for president of the United states but about ninety two per cent of those present had a sneaking notion they might be some time. Fires.
