The graduates of Yale have recently taken in hand the better organization of the University Club, the idea of which originated some months ago, but for want of vigorous management the project did not come to a successful issue. The intention of the founders, we are told, is to establish a pleasant and elegant club-house where students and graduates can meet in social converse, and where they can find music, the periodicals, billiards, cafes and similar innocent delights to make college life in New Haven as agreeable and attractive as is possible under the circumstances. The plan seems to us so admirable and even practicable that we are tempted to suggest that a similar one be undertaken at Harvard, especially since such advantageous quarters could probably soon be obtained when the new Law School building is completed and Dane Hall be destined to hear no more the voices of future Choates and Sumners. Of course some skeptic will tell of that much-abused indifference, and of the state of college life here, so different from that existing at Yale, but we are almost persuaded that not only would such an institution as a University Club be a certain success, but would tend to create a more fraternal feeling that would in many ways accrue to the common weal of the university, graduates and students.
