THE Reading-Room Association enters upon a new year in an unusually prosperous condition. Through the energy and skilful management of the directors last year a larger surplus than usual was left in the treasury; and with proper support from the members of the various classes success is certain. It has been suggested that the reading-room be open evenings; but the heavy debt incurred for gas when this suggestion was carried out a few years ago still cripples the Association somewhat, and makes it averse to a repetition of the experiment at present. Meanwhile the directors have begun a vigorous canvass of the College, in which we wish them all success. Not a few men seem ignorant of the existence of a reading-room, and others forget that it is supported by the subscriptions of students. All these cannot do better than join the association at once.
