It is, as the logician would say, casually connected with green grass, with the smell of the earth as its surface drvs after a gentle rain. These few lines are in the nature of a warning.

No institution ever needed intelligent attention in this field more than this instituion. Buildings are in bad repair; ground's are allowed in many instances to become unsightly. Class rooms need reappointment and refurnishings and the entire campus needs general overhauling. With the new era of activity into which the University is entering, the work of no man in the clerical forces is more imperative than that of the Buildings and Grounds Inspector. rive April drama staged by Lee McClain, stage discussed the new Russia Thursday manager, Milton Revill, Grover Creech evening, March 21, at its regular meetand Gus Gay.
