Editorial "In Cap and Gown" has at last reached the dignity of its Fourth Year and consquently feels the responsibilities which are a necessary accompaniment to such an exalted honor. As a Freshman the magazine was treated with a consideration and respect which few freshies enjoy; as a Sophomore it told more stories, true and untrue, than any other self-confident and all-wise Soph; as a Junior it endeavored to prepare itself for the duties it felt must come with approaching years; and now as it looks forward to its fourth year work, it
speculates as to what it may accomplish, what impression it will make, and above alll what is to be its reception by its readers. The three years of its existence have not been spent in vain and like many another it has learnt that sympathy and hearty co-operation are necessary factors towards success. It is the prerogative of a Senior to command but "In Cap & Gown" recognizes that but a few are born to exercise this privilege and will content itself with begging [underline] for its readers' support - not however the support that pronounces "all very goo" and gives no material and practical aid. The magazine confesses that it has lost none of its love for gossip and promises to retell, faithfully and verbatim whatever you,
its readers, may please to tell it and trusts that you will often make it the recipient of your confidences.

"Oh" replied the intruder, "excuse me, but I understood that you called a meeting of the bored [underlined] and I was fearfully bored. You preached for forty-two minutes!
