The protest against the common MCA Jtf donH Yr rtr 1 nrin nnt 1 t imr .gsity students in this country which o o comes from Prof. Olin of the Wis consin university, is timely and in 'order. There is some excuse for certain forms of slang in the busi ness world, and, in the realms of sports, and some of the best of these soon enter into the current lan- jjjguage because they are pert and expressive But it must be admitted that our language is poorly perverted by the use of terms which are neither or nate nor effective, The value of language consists largely in its adherence to root meanings and if our colleges and universities do not maintain these, we shall find ourselves gradually grip of all the foundations of literary tongue. While, therefore, we do not depre ciate tne use 01 a term wnich may prove brief and forceful in common Sspeech, we would join Prof. Olin and ask that schools and colleges hold the student to the language of the dictionary and thus save to us some thihg of the purity of good language - Courier-Post.
