I _t _£ t ) e _Spectator THE COMMITTEE OF TWENTY . Although the standing and progress of -i university depends upon each individual student the real destiny of the university is finally determined by a select group of students who have her interests most closely at heart and contribute their best to her traditions . This idea grows out of an old universal orinciplc . Its greatest example is in government . No nation or state , nor any _group of any size , has ever been formed mi which all the citizens assumed the responsibilities of leadership and government . The explanation of this condition lies in the inability or the unconcern of the individual . A pure democracy has never been able to exist in the world so far . The ruling powers are always left to a selected group . The principal essen- . ial of a good system of government is an _efficient means of selecting the ruling group , and the quality of government depends upon the sincerity and ability of this group . The inner circl...

FRESHMEN GOOD ENTERTAINERS . There is much credit due to anyone who can make a good show , for _thl-re is much in show . At any rate , the upper classmen have this consensus of opinion , especially when they reflect upon the activities of Thursday afternoon , October 28 th , 1020 . When they reflect they are able to see a wonderful work of art which must have been wrought by some great artist—a picture well worth honorable mention . The setting is on a beautiful college campus lying between two magnificent buildings . The initiative displayed by these performers is amazing , for so many college pranks and humorous actions could never come from a slothful group of entertainers . Such capers as face-washing , running the gauntlet , potato-racing , and comic songs , were among the best of their selections . Indeed , it all seems so real that one may doubt the truth o { these statements , but as we continue our interest in this picture , these gay merry-makers are forming the initials o...
