We hear that the girls at Vassar are "rung up" in the morning to see the comet. This at once suggests to our mind the advisability of taking such a step here. Although Harvard generally is at the front in making innovations and introducing customs, we must not let the fact that Vassar anticipated us in this interfere in the least with our taking advantage of such an excellent suggestion. By all means let our friend, Mr. Jones, toll the great bell some fine morning when the clouds will allow the comet to be visible. If our correspondent who objected to the ringing of the bell on Sunday nights, as being a thing "that would not be tolerated in large cities," cannot stand these innovations, let him flee these classic shades. We hope that the college will lose no time in adopting this suggestion, so worthy of Vassar.
