Thanksgiving Day has come and gone , ind the turkey is eaten . Doubtless all the itudents had a pleasant time in helping o perform this ceremony , and in other vays . The faculty added much to the ; njoyment of all b y kindly giving two days ) f freedom to be spent in various forms of hankfulness , instead of barely one and onger lessons as has been the custom here- : ofore . The students were saved from gong through a straight course of failures n lessons upon that extra day , but had eisure to recover from the jollity of the season . We hope that the faculty will be so delighted with what it has done this year : hat two days of vacation will be presented to the students at Thanksgiving time 2 ach year from this time on . But because it has shown such generosity on this pres ent occasion does not place any obligations upon the faculty to do so again , and no such thought as that it does should exist in the students minds . Several of the professors on Thanksgiving Day opened their ...

Which is the best time for stud y , the evening or the morning ? seems to be a disputed question . We will say that our experience goes to show that much more study can be done during two or three of the early morning hours than during the same time in the evening . The mind does not wander , as in the evening it is apt to do over the events of the day just spent ; there is no dropping asleep over the lessons , but every moment goes to fix the things sought to be learned firml y in the mind . Still our experience goes also to show that it is safer to get the lessons in the evening , for the morning time may glide away while the tired student is desiring yet a little sleep , a little slumber .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1880

We present in this issue extracts from an article on Examinations , which appears in the last number of The Western . Its author is President Bascom , of the Wisconsin State University . The whole article is excellent , as it gives a clear and wise statement of the use and abuse of examinations , but it is much too long to be quoted entire . The substitute for college entrance examinations , a certificate of good scholarship from a high school , is surely of far more value than the hasty and , often unfair system which is giving way before it . In this connection he says , To be able to issue a responsible certificate is an aid to a high school ; to be able to receive it , a relief to the university . That the daily record of recitations is what should be taken account of , and not a final examination at the close of the term , appears so plain to us that we can scarcely think that any one can believe otherwise .

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1880

There are two classes of students , both interesting , which stand in direct opposition to each other . One is composed of those who are willing to take the statements of their text-books and professors without question and without thought ; the other , of those who feel in duty bound to advance an original -opinion upon all questions which arise . The first is tractable on all occasions , but the second is fierce and combative . A student of the first class learns his lessons carelessly , although well , perhaps , as far as the text-book goes , and recites as if with a constant desire of being let alone . If the professor should wish it , there would be nothing to hinder this student from agreeing to statements as contradictor } as did Polonius in regard to the shape of a cloud . He is easily satisfied and thinks others should be also . A student of the other class of which we have spoken labors under the delusion that he is an advanced thinker . Nothing will comport with the digni...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1880

The extra work which has no connection with regular studies , and which is yet so plentiful in colleges , has almost always the effect of lowering the standing of students who engage in it . Nothing is more natural than that a student who has four university studies , and is burdened besides by a great amount of society and other work , should win for himself a lower grade of scholarship than that obtained by a classmate whose only employment is to carry three studies . It is often easier for the latter to present perfect recitations during a whole term than it is for the former to pass in all his studies at the end of the term . Now no ri ght-minded person desires credit for what he does not do , and we think the student who engages in outside affairs desires it least of all . He certainly must consider that he is repaid for the extra work or he would not take it upon himself . Yet he cannot help but feel that he should not be looked upon as an idler , although his lessons may ofte...

Several of the professors are engaging in original investigations in various departments of science . These bid fair to give them in time considerable reputation . There is nothing which can make the University more desirabl y famous than discoveries and writings of its professors . The progress of these investigations should be looked upon with interest b y the students . They will have a greater respect for their instructors who are making names for themselves among the scientific men of the country , when they see what painstaking labor is gone through day after day to reach this end .

Interest in the actions of the college court has been greatly revived of late . Several students have gained , by an exhibition of legal knowledge , the right to practice as lawyers , and seem to be making things interesting occasionall y for the prosecuting attorney . The marshal apparentl y looks to it that cases shall not be wanting , and so the court of justice has frequent and lively sessions . It would be well if all the students were to watch the transactions and decisions of the court . This would not onl y give them , a considerable knowledge of the forms of law , but it would also make the actors themselves careful not to make blunders . Further , it would be an additional punishment to the defendant when proven guilty of a charge against him to have everyone know of the fact . Nearl y all the cases which came before the court last year simply werit b y default and that was the last of them . No one talked about them , and no one came to hear the evidence which should be o...

The College Courier , from Monmouth College , comes to us sweetly asserting in its editorial columns that we are a liar , or , at least , that we were badly bewildered by the result of the late contest at Gales burg . Besides this it accuses us of squealing ( the Courier s word , not ours ) because the orator of this University was defeated in that contest . What have we said to merit all this ? In the first place we gave our orator a word of welldeserved praise . In the next place we did not fall down and worship the Monmouth orator—in fact , we had the awful audacity to speak of his oration as a disconnected row of schoolboy paragraphs . We might have also added that it was very pretty and quite true—which is about the kind of praise that others have bestowed upon it—for it was both . Furthermore , we stated that we were perfectly satisfied with the decision of the judges . According to our belief , which may be peculiar , but still is our own , more account should be taken of del...

The seniors have at last concluded tha after all they can not afford to spare an of their precious time this term in having a sociable . This is really a sad state o affairs . It shows a great devotion t < study , you will say . One would thin ! so if it were not for the fact that the ; seem to have plenty of time to do every thing else but have a sociable . Can i be that the seniors are growing tired o each other ?

In , former years i has held numerous meetings which wei alike pleasant , but now in its senior yes it seems to have renounced its traditior and lost its desire for social intercourse This is surely wrong .

THE LAKE SUPERIOR EXPEDITION . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1880

THE LAKE SUPERIOR EXPEDITION . During the last spring term a party of our students organized for the purpose of spending the summer vacation in the Upper Lake Region , carrying on their studies in natural history and making collec tions . Our route was via Lakes Michigan and Huron , through St . Marie River , along the whole length of Lake Superior , returning home by way of the Mississippi River . The first thing w as for each and every man to provide himself with $ 50 . What ! A three months trip of two thousand miles for $ 50 ? Yes , sir ; time is money ; we had the time . We first made arrangements with the Steamship Company by which we were allowed to stop over at any stopping p lace as long as we chose . We then secured a complete camp outfit and apparatus for preserving specimens . We had a pleasant trip from Chicago to the Mackinac on the steamer Peerless . Captain Mclntyre showed us many favors .

world THE GLAD POET . Uh , me ripe nangs ana wans—Waiting evermore is weary—For a poet who the fates Fears not , and is blithe and cheery . When he comes , the world shall bring AH her sweetest winds to woo him , All the pleasance of the spring , And her larks shall sing unto him . But her larks shall soon be mute ; When the poet s song shall waken , Softer than a shepherd s flute , Shall the great world s heart be shaken To his tones of utter joy , And his praise of glad existence , Treads she happy as a boy Down her path of endless distance .

THE HURTFUL GROWTH OF CITIES . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1880

THE HURTFUL GROWTH OF CITIES . There are twenty cities in the United States , each with a population of over 100 , 000 , and with a grand total of nearl y 6 , 300 , 000 , or over one eighth of our entire population . Since the hard times of 1873 , and our after progress to prosperity , the people have flocked to the large cities owing to the grater facilities offered there in gaining a livelihood . At the present astonishing increase in our cities , a maximum growth must sooner or later be reached , when the flow will go back again to the country to build up once more our agricultural interests . With the development of agriculture in all its forms comes the prosperity of a country , for it is the base on which all other industries are founded . The greater its development , the greater should be the pros perity of all other industries . The rapid increase of large cities will finally result in the crippling of agriculture b y taking away from it its necessary element —labor , makin...

EXAMINATIONS . Extracts from an article by President Bascom , oi Wisconsin State University , published in The Western . ] An intellectual life that is trul y healthy vill be pleasurable and spontaneous . If ye put any worry and painful labor into jur instructions , the harassed mind will ivenge itself by improving its first liberty ? y turning disgustfully back from its ungrateful task . The true teacher will esP pecially occupy himself in establishing a wholesome , agreeable habit of mind , that vill go on through life to complete its own vork . Among the special instruments of intelectual annoyance and distressful labor nay be put examinations . Examations , s means of instruction , serve one purpose nd an important purpose ; as artificial larriers which must be leaped before the tudent can get from one field to another f inquiry , they subserve another purpose , nd a less fortunate one .

A WORD FOR THE BALL PLAYERS . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 1 December 1880

A WORD FOR THE BALL PLAYERS . A great deal has been said in several of our college papers about having a base ball tournament in connection with the Inter-State Oratorical Contest next May . From what we have heard at home and abroad , it is almost certain that there will be one , and as the State University is determined to send a representative nine , it is time we were looking about for the means with which to procure uniforms for it . We are justly proud of our boys , and I think it right and proper that we should show our interest in them in this manner . The uniforms will not cost very much , and it is absolutely necessary that we should have them . The boys will feel better and play better , arrayed in neat and attractive uniforms , than they would with uniforms as varied as those worn at Galesburg . There are several ways in which the money can be raised with which to purchase the uniforms . We can give one or two literary entertainments during the winter , and by charging a...
