UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 15 December 1880

The time of reviews and examinations is here , and the sins of omission in careful study are being satisfactorily punished . In fact these closing weeks of the term are made , through the present system of examinations , a sort of educational purgatory into which the students are plunged to become fitted to enter upon the work of the next term . It would be wiser , we think , to make this punishment less severe by having examinations at intervals during the term upon the portion of study which had been done since there had been ati examination before . la this way there would be no severe cramming called for as a necessary closing to the terms work . The subject is old , and for that reason it is of no particular interest to any one , especially as the discussion of it does not do away with the necessity of cramming .

Beginning with this number , we will regularly publish in brief the results of the observations on the weather taken at the University s signal service station . Sergeant Welsh has kindly agreed to give the record of his labors into our hands to be placed before our readers . We think that a brief and reliable review of the weather every two weeks will be considered an interesting feature of THE ILLINI by all the students . That inexhaustible subject of conversation should be as entertaining in print as out of it . Besides , we should patronize and encourage our home weather as much as possible .

The students should not forget that it is in their power to do much towards getting the name of the University changed before the close of this year , and should work accordingly . Many of them are personally acquainted with one or more members of the legislature . To these they should exp lain the disadvantages arising from the present unlucky name of the institution . When the legislators of the state once come to understand what we as students are painfully aware of , that the mass of the people of the state consider their boasted State University to be a mere manual labor school , they will have little hesitation in bestowing on it a name which will rightly represent its character . Nothing can teach them this fact better than the related experience of their student friends . Surel y this should not he withheld from them . We think that there are none of the stu dents who do not desire a change in the Universitys name . Whether the faculty intends to lay the matter before the le...

The Alethenai has set a good example to the other societies by giving a contest , in declamation We would like to see the rest of them follow speedily this example and have similar contests of their own . Such things as this do a great deal toward making regular society work better , both through the extra drill which they require and through the spice and interest which they add . The latter of these , however , is to be taken only in moderate quantities or it becomes demoralizing . But anything which will help the members of the societies to gain a graceful manner of delivery is to be encouraged . We are sure that contests in declamation tend to this result , and , consequently , that one or more should be held every year by each of the societies .

We do not know exactly what to think of the plan which the seniors propose to take in obtaining their class day program . Its novelty recommends it if nothing else does . If a number of the class enter the friendly contest and compete heartily , it will doubtless fulfil the intentions of its originators , and give to the class the best productions that any of its members are able to write . But if only a few of them , who are led more by an ambitious motive than by a knowledge of their fitness , take part , then the plan will utterly fail . In order to prevent this , the seniors owe it to themselves and to their class that all of them who have the least aptitude for producing such compositions as are prescribed by the terms of the competition , go to work and do their best to come out ahead of all the others . If they do this , the plan is insured perfect success . Whether it fail or not , it shows in the seniors a provident forethought , in that they try to make ready for class day...

UNKNOWN [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 15 December 1880

The two entertainments which have been held this term under the auspices of our literary societies have both resulted in loss to their managers . What was the cause of this ? The charge of being unknown can not be brought against either Cumnock or Wendling . The one stands forth acknowledged to be the leading elocutionist , and the other the leading orator , of the west . Both the reading and the lecture were well advertised , and nothing was neglected which would tend to draw an audience to hear them . The results in both cases were the same—small houses and failures to pay expenses . These however are but the last of many similar experiences . An entertainment which does more than barely pay expenses is a rarity . Then wh 3 should the societies persist in burdening themselves with such profitless affairs ? Sad experience will show that for every one of them which pays even moderately , at least half a dozen result in financial loss . We be lieve that that hard-working and troubles...

Several of the alumni are anxious to know whether articles in opposition to the students government would be published in our columns if presented to us for that purpose . We can only say that we have very great doubts as to whether they would or not . There is a bare possibility that something might be written on th e subject which would be logical and so wise that we would instantly give it a place of honor . Such a thing is possible , but not probable . We do not care to foster this old and useless discussion in regard to the legality of the system . The attorney-general of the state has decided that it is legal . The trustees and faculty have often said that it is desirable . In our mind nothing more is necessary .

The assistant librarians have peculiar ideas in regard to the proper way of replacing the college papers in the library after students have been reading them . When not in use they always belong where first found . It is not enough to pile them up in the most convenient corner , for to do this is to place them in hopeless confusion . While they remain in the library for reference they make up a part of the library , and should not be stowed away at random to save a little trouble . Many times already during this term have we found our most valued exchanges in a perfect chaos of disorder within a day or two after we had placed them properly . We ask that the same care shall be given to them that is given to the other periodicals . If they do not receive this they will very probably be removed from the library at no distant day .

There is a great difference between the feelings with which the student notes the approach of the Christmas vacation and those which grow upon him as the school year draws to its close . The former release from study is only long enough to allow him time for a little run home , where he expects to do no work and only to enjoy himself . He leaves his classmates for a short time only , and therefore lightly . There is no thought that probably this or that friend he will never ^ ee again , to mar his departure . The time is not one of change , but only marks a short relaxation of duty . When he returns he does not find that in some mysterious way he has risen higher in the ranks of undergraduates than he was before , but simply drops back into his old place and plods along in the old manner . However this holiday season is not a time for sober thoughts upon any subject . When the load of examinations is lifted if there is any fun at all in the student it is bound to show itself . He ru...

We have heard entirely too much rejoicing by the members of 8 i in regard to the ease with which they will get out of delivering orations on commencement day through the new ruling of the faculty . It may be well for some who feel that they are entirely unfitted for speaking in public to give themselves up thus to unlimited rejoicing , but we think that the large majority of the class should not give up all thoughts of delivering orations on that day . On the contrary , it would be much better for these last to prepare orations and submit them to the professors , as the regent desires , and quietly allow these higher powers to choose the lucky—or unlucky—twelve who shall represent the class . This would speak much better of the members than if a few only should condescend to put themselves to the trouble of writing , leaving a deficiency of numbers which would have to be filled by drafting unwilling ones into the service .

OUR EXPERIENCE AT THE "SOO . " [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 15 December 1880

OUR EXPERIENCE AT THE SOO . In the last number of THE ILLINI A . H . Kingman left our scientific party plow in - along through the St . Marie river with two large schooners and a steam barge looming up before us like monstrous things of life . We were bound for the far-renowned Soo , which we began to believe to be a city containing everything good of this life , and we were happy . It is true that on account of the experience of the dav before , we at first felt something knocking very hard and fast on the inside of our ribs and sat as close as possible to our boat expecting at every moment that it would upset , or , perhaps , glide under the schooner to which we were fast . But it did not , and after we had ridden a mile or two , we began to sing , to quarrel , and to enjoy ourselves generally . We had taken the mode of travel that would give us the best view of the scenery as we glided b y tracts of country covered with the blackened trunks of spruce and arbor vitae that had late...

SUNSET ON EAST RIVER . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 15 December 1880

SUNSET ON EAST RIVER . 1 have occasion every evening to cross East River in New York . The scenery has often deeply impressed me with its beauty and the activity of the life which exists within it . The roll of the green salt water underneath ; the noise and hurry on shore ; the shi pping at the numerous docks along the bank ; the flapping sail of some sloop , as it tacks up or down the river ; the heavy puffing of the tug-boats , plowing along with great speed through the water ; the buildings on shore , walling in the river as far as the eye can reach—all lend a beauty , a life and fullness to the scene , which are very impressive at all times . But it is at sunset On a cold , frosty evening , that the beauty is most striking . Standing on the rear end of a ferry-boat as it steams along , you look down the river towards the setting sun . Near at hand the tugs and ferry-boats are hurrying about in all directions . Further down the river , where the traffic is greater , they appear ...

THE TOILER AND HIS MOTIVE . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 15 December 1880

THE TOILER AND HIS MOTIVE . As we mingle among people in the various stations of life , we are struck with the difference in the motives which actuate men . The mere politician courts the good favor of men , and willingly sacrifices time and money that he may get a high salary , and be praised of men . The true statesman has at heart the best interests of his nation , and allows neither the ambition for fame nor the thirst for wealth to interfere with his fidelity to the trust confided to him by the people . The soldier pants for renown ; and prosperity , or even life itself , he willingly risks , that he may have his name on history s page . The merchant s estimate of money , time , and reputation is determined by the per cent income to be derived from each respectively . The farmer values his summer days b y the amount of labor he can crowd into them . The laborer delves , sometimes almost grudgingly , so that the time may be counted . Now , of these latter mentioned how many ende...

UNIVERSITY NOTES . LOCAL . The state of the weather may be seen in another column . All societies except the Philomathean adjourned last Friday for the Alethenai contest . The day for which all other days were made—examination day , dawns tomorrow . What s in a name ? The Times reporter says that Professor Fritz of the Springfield school of elocution is to teach us that art next term . The professor may now roll balls about on the green grass to his entire satisfaction . It has been decreed by the authorities to be no more sinful than other games of ball rolling . It must be announced as a fact that Champaign people cannot appreciate a good lecture . Even Wcndling did not pay expneses , though be deserved as large a house as the city could afford . . Rev . .

A LETTER FROM THE EAST . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 15 December 1880

A LETTER FROM THE EAST . UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER , | DECEMBER 10 , 1880 . f DEAR ILLINI : — Your bright face , greeting me every two weeks , brings up I . I . U . life before me in a delightful way . I am going to assume that the institution still has some interest in a deserter , and that a little account of college matters in this wide awake institution midway between the extreme cultured east and the enterprising west , will have some attraction for your readers . The University of Rochester is a healthy , well-organized institution , of some twenty-seven years growth , with a large endowment and elegant , gray-stone buildings in a large and beautiful campus . Its library of 18 , 000 or 20 , 000 volumes is increasing rapidly , and has a splendid , fire-proof building for its reception . Like the I . I . U ., it rejects dormitories , and the students find pleasant homes in the city . It has no preparatory department , and its halls are as destitute of fair faces as the Sahara is o...

Senate Report . [Newspaper Article] — Daily Illini — 15 December 1880

Senate Report . Senate called to order b y President Wadsworth who reported a communication from the faculty , in which they took exceptions to the deficit referred to them by the senate . They excluded from the bill the charge for advertising in THE ILLINI for the present year and also the salaries due last year s marshals ; holding that these debts were not due till bills were presented . These views seeming reasonable the senate concurred , thus reducing the actual amount of the debt to about three dollars . It was also reported that the faculty intend at the next meeting of the board of trustees to ask for an annual appropriation of twenty five-dollars to meet the regular expenses of the students government . This was considered a move in the right direction , and as it seems likely to be granted , a motion was made to let further consideration of the debt drop . This motion was tabled . It was moved and carried that the secretary be instructed to correspond with last year s mar...
