"WHAT IS SACRED?"

with all due respect to the dead Osiris,

of every one, we wish to put this simple question, "What is, or what constitutes sacredness?"
We are informed that our old assembly hall, heretofore used for any
and all student convocations, ought
not, or must not be used for football
rallies; that the chapel should be held
more "sacred." Perhaps it Is through
our own inability that we do not understand why the four walls of the

than our laboratories and

Again we say' frankly that we may
have the wrong conception, but our
comment means to be honest and our
intentions the best and we hope not
to offend even the most sensitive. In
a State University we would desig"
nate our "sacred" and
student functions and in so doing we
would consult dame reason and have
due consideration for the likes and
dislikes, faiths and beliefs of the children of humanity.
