THE VOLANTE. VERMILLION, SOUTH DAKOTA. -------------------- Published Monthly by the Students' Association of the University of Dakota. -------------------- T. E. POWERS, Editor-in-Chief. J. G. MORRISON, Editorials. FRANK BLAIR, Literary. A. B. MAYNARD Miscellany. LILIAN B. HEALD College Notes and Exchanges. HOMER COWLES Personals and Locals. GEO. DUDLEY, Business Manager. -------------------- EDITORIALS. -------------------- A careful perusal of the recently published book, "In Darkest England," by Gen. Booth, gives the reader a startling picture of the degradation, despair and depth of misery of the masses of London. It is a picture which our nineteenth century civilization should blush to look upon. It should also be remembered that the great American cities are not a whit behind London, except perhaps in numbers. It is very encouraging to note, however, the efforts made by philanthropic men, such as the author of this book, to alleviate the terrible sufferings of the masses of our modern cities. Gen. Booth outlines a "way out" which all philanthropists would do well to study. -------------------- The practice of "cutting classes" which some few of the University students indulge in, is one that should be abandoned at as early a date as possible. A student's time is too valuable, if he but realizes it, to spend it in idly loafing about his room or on the streets when he should be in class. It gives the Professor needless annoyance, does the student no good and much harm, and does not make the reputation of the school any brighter. Everyone should be thankful that we have but a very few of these drones in our midst, but it must be admitted, unfortunately, that there are a few, and it should be the aim of every energetic member of the institution to make them feel that they must change their ways or change their abiding place. -------------------- Several of the faculty took quite a decided stand, at the beginning of this term, against some of the students presenting themselves from two to three days behind hand at the opening of the term. It is too often the case that the student spends one or more days too much at his home, during vacation. It should never be thought that the second or third day is as beneficial to begin the term on as the first, and an earnest student will not fail to see it in this light. The recent vacation was made two days longer than is usually the case, and it was noticed that the num- of absentees was no smaller on that account, The first lesson of a term should be of as much importance as any succeeding one, and as earnest an effort should be put forth to be present at that as at any other. True, it is not just to send forth a universal condemnation on this point because there are doubtless many who have excellent reasons for not reporting for duty at the proper time; still it should be condemned, and avoided as much as possible.
