An Appeal to Caesar.
"Self-assertion is the beginning of ethical life." (Philosophy 4.) Let me begin an ethical life Thursday, Nov. 27th, and live it until Dec. 1st. During that time let each undergraduate lead a pure, beautiful, moral life. Let us set aside our "Harvard dignity" for a little while-it amounts to priggishness sometimes-and be human. Let's start a revolution. We have lain in state long enough.
No pure ethical being will attend recitations or prayers after Thanksgiving day, until the following Monday.
