UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

The question of a badge is one which is almost sure to disturb every class at some time during its course . Now and then there may happen to be a class which is so perfectly harmonious that it can decide upon a fitting badge with little or no dispute . Also there may arise , at long intervals of time , classes so heroic that they can cast aside all thoughts of insignia of this kind without a murmur or pang . But the common , every-day classes which go marching year after year onward towards commencement do not fail to find more or less trouble in trying to supply themselves with badges to their minds . We think that a badge is a good thing provided that all the members of a class adopting one will supply themselves with it , but we think that little pleasure can come from one which is worn by part of a class . There is nothing that is really pleasant in anything that a class does , except it be done with the sanction and aid of all its members . Better no badge at all than one which...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

We lately had occasion to lc * k over the old files of THE ILLINI . It would take long to tell of all the curious and interesting things we found within those dingy covers of old time . The acts of students whom we never heard of before , sound strangely on account of our familiarity with the surroundings and utter ignorance of the actors themselves . In their pages every change which was made about the University is recorded . Each successive improvement is there set forth in glowing words . The whole makes a story of rapid advancement which is delightful to read . But most of all were we interested in the history of THE ILLINI itself . From the time it began its precarious existence over nine years ago under the name of The Student , until within the last two or three years , it was deeply in debt , and only lived by the kind aid of the professors and other friends . The considerable donations of money which we find recorded as made by many of the professors for its support show u...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

The warm interest in the students government which several of the professors have lately manifested gives us great hope that they will go still further and do something material in its behilf . The regent especially has shown that he recognizes the importance of having the government placed upon a sure financial basis . The amount of money which is required to meet all demands upon it is not large , but still is necessary . When arrangements shall be completed for the regular supply of this from the rightful source , all will be well . That this supply can only come from themselves , or through them from a special grant of the trustees , we think the professors well know . Further , we are confident that they are willing to do whatever they feel is right in regard to this necessary money . Then let the senate present the whole matter to the faculty in a business-like manner , and there is little doubt but that there will come a satisfactory reply from it . Our advice is that the who...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

The Knox Stdent , in an editorial on the oratorical contest and the good coming to the interested colleges by the existence of the inter-collegiate association asks : Why should not the scope of our association be extended , the fields of its labors enlarged ? There are many branches of college work in which excellence might be promoted just as our contest association promotes it in oratory . In our opinion this same association could be made the instrument of promotion in these branches also . Prizes could be offered for examinations , for original work in the sciences , for poems , for scientific and philosophical essays . This would extend the interest in the association and its work , which is now felt , to a certain extent , only by a favored few ,. to all classes of college students . After these suggestions it proceeds to unfold its plans for carrying them out . An endowment fund must be raised to insure the payment of prizes , a charter from the state must be obtained , and ...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

Several of the eastern colleges have adopted the plan of keeping their reading rooms open on Sunday afternoons . This is a new departure which we think worthy to be followed by this University . The hours from two to five could not be spent more profitably by the students upon these days than in reading in the library . Formerly , at these times , lectures were delivered in the chapel for their instruction . It is probable that none such will be given this year . Nothing could better take the place of them than the opportunity to spend the time , that in other years has been devoted to these , in instructive reading . We think none of the professors can have any serious objections to this change in the library rules , so we can hope that it will soon be made .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

There are some members of the present junior class who have now the cheerful remembrance to carry away with them on their graduation that they have taken steps to ruin the class trees of two successive senior classes . This must be a source of immense gratification to these highminded students . Last year s daring act of up-rooting the newly-planted senior tree and carrying it away to repose in the waters of Boneyard met with much admiration at the time . This was deemed very good for sophomores ; but as juniors they were able to do better . When the seniors by planting the class tree prepared the way for their genius to shine forth , it shone with astonishing brightness . They were seized with an intense love for decoration , and so when the darkness had fallen they decked out the tree in the highest style of art . Tar , the symbol of strength and consistency ; feathers , the symbol of lightness and versatility , in pleasing combination , were the agents by which they expressed the...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

The military companies have been doing excellent work this term . Many of the older students , who had not yet grown accustomed to the new order of things in the way of appointments of officers , were not free from doubts as to its entire success . But the officers , both commissioned and non-commissioned , have shown themselves perfectly competent to take full charge of the department . Still , there is an evident mistake in the arrangement which causes the sophomores to begin the study of the tactics and their duties as non-commission-ed officers at the same time . Especially can this be seen in sergeants appointed to new companies , where they are expected to serve as efficient drill-masters , when they have never studied tactics a single day . The only ramedy for this is to have the study of tactics begin as early as the spring term of the freshman year . This would give sufficient drill in military science to keep the companies from being crippled at the start as they were this...

The request of the regent that the seniors without delay make sure that their studies are recorded correctly upon the books of the University is a wise one , and we hope all of them will comply with it . None of them know , what mistakes may have been made in crediting studies during the three years that they have been students here . It would be wonderful indeed if no mistakes had been made during that time . If an } of these have a bearing on ones standing , and consequentl y . on his chances of graduation , the sooner he knows of it and has it corrected the better . There is nothing hard in having this done . It is surely much easier to see to it now than to wait until trouble shall arise during the last weeks of the year , when all will be rush and worry over approaching commencement . To be safe once in this respect is to be safe all the time , and safety is always desirable .

The more we see of other institutions of learning the better we are satisfied with our own University . And right here is another argument in favor of having a thorough acquaintance with the other colleges of the state . Such an acquaintance will not fail to give us a deeper love and a higher pride for the one which we know best of all . We are not fully aware of all the advantages we possess in the direction of gaining an education until we see how many of these are lacking at most of the other colleges of the West . Let us learn to recognize our advantages and be thankful for them .

THE PEOPLE IN HISTORY . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

THE PEOPLE IN HISTORY . irnze oration delivered by J . S . E . Erskine , of Monmouth College , at the inter-collegiate contest at Galesburs . October 13 , 1880 . ] s The records of the world are mainly the memoirs of great men . The annals of mankind are largely the annals of intrigues , battles , conquests , in which a few leaders are prominent . In the landscape of the past there are men like mountains , whose upheaval is said to have convulsed the world . Underneath are the common folk . The mountains seem majestic , but greater far is the deep substratum upon which they rest . , Above appears Csesar or Napoleon ; below , that but for which there would have been no . Napoleon or Cassar . Royalists have maintained that monarchs rule by right divine , but that right is not divine . It is tacitly granted by the people . A king cannot be a despot and his people free in thought . Heroworshippers talk and sing of great revolutionists : but the true revolutionists are the people . The r...

REOUIESCAT . White with the foam of the lily , Black with the gloom of the pall ; Touch not her hand , it is chilly , Touch not the bloom , it will fall , — The lily will crumble and fall . Slumber is sweet after sorrow , Sweet is the ceasing of tears ; They fall not to-day nor to-morrow , Nor ever in slow-lagging years . In crawling , disconsolate years . Gone are the cold and the quaking Of all the drear winds of the sky , Gone are the pain and the aching , Secure from them all doth she lie , Forever secure doth she lie . When in the grave they have made her She lies with a rose on her breast , Soon all will forget where they laid her And where her hushed heart is at restOh , never was happier rest ! C .

THE LIMITATION OF SUFFRAGE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

THE LIMITATION OF SUFFRAGE . [ Oration delivered by J . A . Allen at the inter-collegiate oratorical contest at Galesburg , Oct . 13 , 1880 . ] Amidst the great revolutions that mark the closing years of the eighteenth century a national policy sprang into being , destined to break the bonds of peoples and to usher in a bettar era for the nations of earth . Freedom , wearied by her long struggle for recognition among the rights of man , sought a resting place in our own lind . Thankful for her welcome she bestowed upon America a right that recognizes no rank or condition , guarding every claim of wealth , and lessening , by the conscious power it brings , the weariness of the laborers toil , —the right of universal suffrage . Though it had its birth amidst the excitement of war , yet men used their new power with that moderation and that care for good , which justice alone teaches . This power of manhood , representation , has never brought an evil upon the land that was not almost ...

Communication . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

Communication . It is surprising to notice the number of poor readers among us . Ask a student to read you an article from a book or newspaper , and in nine cases out of ten he will so mangle it that you can hardly understand anything he says . Many of the best written productions in our societies lose half their interest through poor reading . Now , we may not all be Cumnocks or Burbanks;—their interpretations call for genius itself ; but we may all become good readers . An elocution teacher is not necessary . A frequent and intelligent use of the means which nature has given each of us , will insure success . Our chapel readings are excellent opportunities for practice , as here the tendency to read fast , and thus jumble words together , is checked . The value ol the power to read well is unquestioned ; the wonder is that more do not acquire it . Q . Z .

The Annual Outrage . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 3 November 1880

The Annual Outrage . The long-looked-for event has at last come and gone ; but it came in a manner altogether unlooked-for , being characterized by a low trickery and a spirit of meanness on the part of some of our students which we should have believed impossible for them to possess . The tale runs in this wise : The seniors having made preparations for planting their tree on last Friday afternoon , extended invitations to all the organized classes of the University to attend and assist in the ceremonies . This call was responded to en masse by all classes except the juniors , who , if they can t enthuse on a class banquet enough to raise half a dozen couples , couldnt be expected to do so on a senior tree planting . The freshmen had the band out , and each of the other classes furnished its full quota of music . The sophs particularly responded with their characteristic patriotism , having a song prepared especially for the occasion , and presenting the seniors with a twin tree ga...
