A very interesting debate was held in the Freshman English class last Friday morning on the question, "Should student government be. adopted at M~)unt St. Mary's?'; The affirmative was upheht by Lourine Lingenfelder and Peggy Newton, the negative by Mary Elizabeth Mahoney and Mary Louise Keller, Lucitlc Frederick was chairman.

Mount St. Mary's eagers won their second game from the Comptometers on Tuesday evening in St. Mary's gym, witb St. Mary's second team playing about half the game.

Carlyle's word that life was never a mere May morning for humanity, holds true for all ages. But the pagan world, which had its homes on the shores of the Mediterranean, was less of a paradise than the countries of the modern civilized world, in spite of all th~ shortcomings of the latter. No one will deny that our in- dustrial centers are ugly, grim, and that the slums of our cities are shameful, but there is no reason to assume that either th~ freemen or the slaves in the city over which arose the wonders of the Acropolis were happier or more content than the laboring masses of today. The cruelties perpetrated by the citizens of one Greek city state on those of a conquered community, ending in the complete destruction of great eentres of commerce and art, while all of their inhabitants were either ruthlessly slaughtered or sold into slavery, would seem to denote a ~rame of mind which could not make for true happiness.

At present there is a tendency for the family, due to the industrial con- ditions of the country, to follow the course taken by the Bible.
