Among the alumni of the Virginia
Military Institute In rills city much in?
terest Is felt concerning the final result
or the dlsmlsslal of the first class a few
days ago for conduct bordering on In?
subordination. There Is but one opin?
ion, however, and that is that the class
should be severely punished for their
breach of discipline, but there Is also a
vein of pity among these ex-students
for the boys who are In such serious
trouble. While these gentlemen deplore
such c.induct, and condemn it in no
uncertain way,, yet they hope that the
spirit of punishment may be accom?
plished and the penalty so abridged
that reinstatement may occur and the
offense dealt with in Buch a mannet1
as to leave n lasting effect. The fact
that the students have been dismissed
Is In Itself a groa t humiliation, they as?
sort, and Is regarded as a never-to-be
forgotten lerson, but some of the alum?
ni think that it the men are reinstated
and reprimanded nnd made to promise
not to do so again In a public apology,
that tin? object of punishment wqulu
then be thoroughly accomplished.
ALWAYS IN FOR PUN.
(if course, it Is well known that most
all young men, when oft at college, are
in ; ?!? ail kinds of fun and amusement,
ami while these inclinations often load
them into trouble. In nearly every case
the oftenie is not ol the heart, but
simply over-anxiety for fun and prac?
tical jokes. There Is possibly hoi an
alumnus in the State but who some?
times during his college career took
part In s ime like escapades that
brlught down tho professor's blight,
but it is very doubtful if any real
wrong was evi r Intended.
Of course there Is a high moral tone and
code ot" honor among the pupils, and
very often these little affairs can never
bo traced to Us source. The tvhole class
is usually pledged to protect each
other, and the incidents of fun and
tricks that nro played very often have
to go unpunished.
This, however, does riot mean that
tho colleges do not try td ferret out
tin so jokes, b icause they always do,
and, as rules are very strict, when t%
fell) w Is caught he Is sure to be dealt
with according to military discipline
and the college rules regarding such
The recent case, though, seems to be
of n most serious nature, in that the
class had boon called up and told very
positively not to do the thing they did,
and then the fact that it was tlie se?
il I ?r class makes the offense all the
more deplorable, as the officers knew
bo-tor and should not have acted as

Mil. Q. TAYLOE GWATHMEY.
Mr. Owathmey talked very interest?
ingly about the incidents that happen?
ed while he was at Lexington. Jiesaid
the most serious thing that occurred
was the blowing tip of the magazlnt?
a thing that was greatly deplored?and
had the corps of cadets ever discover?
ed who did it they would have joined
the professors in dismissing the men
He asserted that the scholars were al?
ways up to some Innocent prank but
very often they were caught and dealt
with pretty severely. H? sa|d the 1111 st
amusing incident that he could re?
member was one occasion when asentry

SOME OF THE OTHEItS.
Mr. W. H. White was found in his
office, but was suffering very much with
a bad attack of grip. He Bald he was
at the institute during the war of the
States, and the boys were thinking too
much about serious affairs to think
very much about personal amusements
Tiny found time and Inclination, how
evi r, to indulge in auch actions some?
Mr. Walter H. Taylor said that jokes
w re often played during his scholar?
ship, and the cadets frequently had to
pay pretty dearly f..r it. Ho said the
classes always stood tOgethed in their
little "affairs,' and that on one occa?
sion the juniors, or, as they were term
ed. by the flirt class, "rats." became
miffed at some action of the seniors
nnd a regular light ensued. In which
about fifty of the youngsters proceed?
ed to do \ip the class of fifteen seniors,
one amongst whom was himself.
PETITION THE GOVERNOR.
Governor Tyler has received many
communications from the dismissed
pupils, and their friends, and some of ,
them have been to see him nnd asked
for his Influence In getting them back
to college. They don't claim to be in
nocent, but express many regrets for
their conduct and are willing to make
any sort of an apology.
