While yet their Winter passeth slow
Here blooms perennial their Spring;
And here the pledge of Hope they bring
And Love that dleth not, bestow.
Where once their heart of youth was fain
Its rich florescence, white and red,
Upon the field of strife to shed
Folded, the petals that remain;
The morning glories of their youth
That drooped not In the midday drought-
Have shut on Peace; as to a stem
Stripped bare, the banners cling of them

Of separation; stripes as red
As the one blood their fathers shed,
Bring ye, and bind the Peace that saves
In unity, these sacred graves.

Their children's children shall engage,
Their sponsors In a new baptism
For them to cherish; let that chrism
On their dead brows descend, and bless

Inevitable change. Even to the older
part of the community who retain
the memory of the civil war and its

munity Is a new generation, whose
knowledge of the events originally
designed to be commemorated is ob

without the force of personal memorv.
Naturally, therefore, the progress of

personal feelings that hallowed the
first two decades of the observance.
Kansas Schools to Advertise.
It is possible that the University of
Kansas and state normal school will
be able to do a little newspaper ad
vertialng'this year,1 after-- all. Last
year James M. Nation, state auditor,
ruled that the schools could not tpend
the state's money for newspaper ad'
vertlsing for students, as be believed
it was a bad policy. " Also be could
not see the wisdom of a school adver
tising for students and then asking the
legislature for additional funds, be
cause there are more students than
can be cared for properly. The school
were notified that no advertisement
bills would be audited or allowed this
year. But, a few days ago It was
learned that the agricultural college
was placlng.advertising contracts with,
newspapers. The school was notified
that rhe'Wnr would'not-be"allowed and
word came back that the state would
not pay the bill as advertising con
tracts would be paid for out of the
$40,000 appropriated by . the govern
ment for agricultural college work and
not out of state funds. As the audi
tor has no contral over the govern
ment money he could 'not stop that
school, so arrangements are being
made for the university and state nor
mal schools to spend a few hundred
dollars a year for advertising.
K. U's Bio Year.
By far the largest graduating class
in the history of the University of
Kansas will receive diplomas of
graduation June 9. The registrar of
the university has just finished the list
of seniors eligible for graduation this
year. This list contains 320 names from
the six schools of the university, who
will receive bachelors' degrees besides
15 graduate students, who will receive
masters' degrees from the college
and the school of engineering. As
usual, the college heads the list with
151 seniors, while the engineering
school will grant degrees to 59. Forty-
nine will be graduated In law, 81 in
pharmacy, 23 in fine arts and seven In
the clinical department of the medi

About half the school bond elections
