Last Thursday night. Halloa-e'en,
was not observed by the Freshmen
of Washington and Lee', as has bern
thei custom for some years past.
The celebration in recent years has
gone beyond the limits of s; ort, and
frequently developed into exceenea
of destruct ion .This year members of
the Freshmen class decide-1 to "cut
out" such a celebration, and to their
credit and the credii of Washington
and Iiog no outbreaks occurred.

The past two weeks this section has
had the full enjoyment of glorious
weather. With bright sunshine and
bracing air, with crisp mornings
and nights lighted by a full moon,
weather conditions are well uigh
perfect. Added to these attractions
is the wealth of coloring found ic
the gorgeous display on tree and
shrub, the richness and brightness
of surpassing beautv.
Standing on any eminence around
our lovely town, there spreads be
fore the eye a varied and attractive
scene of beautiful landscape o
mountain and vale,stretching undi"

delightful season, when the harves

the garnered ci ops.
Happy, indeed, the man whoeuter.

Washington and Lee Saturday Won
In the final game of the season
on Wilson Field, Washington and
Lee Saturday afternoon defeated
Davidson College by the score of 54
too. From a spectator's point ol
vie iv, the game was intensely inter
esting. Time after time the White
and Rino literally ran over the
North Carolina lads, and rarelv
were more than four plays necessary
for a touchdown.
In spite of the fact that five of tin
regular varsity men. including Cap?
tain Miller, wore out of the game,
the White and Rlue proved itself a
perfect righting machine.
At every stage the line was im?
pregnable, although it was compos

Virginia's black lint of avoided sub?
jects. We remember some years

the latter school, for reasons never

Lexington school again, and on an?
other occasion, after an Orange and
Maroon victory un Lambeth field,
tbe Virginia Polytechnic Institute
met the same dire fate. Again we

condolences. Wonder who Virginia
