We wish to say a few words to the members of the class of '85. No man likes to have his picture taken. It is looked upon as an extremely disagreeable thing to prepare one's self for this trying ordeal. Nothing compares with it, except perhaps a visit to the dentist. It has become recognized, however, as an established custom for every class to have their pictures taken, and to this end a photographic committee is selected whose duties, even when ably seconded by the class, are no light burden. Now we ask you, members of '85, is it right or fair to the committee which you have elected, to sit quietly in your rooms and calmly read their notices and then proceed to calmly ignore them? Your pictures must be taken or an old established custom will be given up. The sooner you make your appointments, the better for all concerned, especially for yourself. The sittings must be finished by the first of March, and now is the best time for getting this disagreeable duty off your hands. Between Christmas and the Mid Year's all your time is taken up with grinding for the examination; after the mid-years are over the strain of getting through your last set of semi-annual examinations will have reduced you to such an extremity that few will care to go down to posterity looking as you will then look. Now is the time and we hope every senior will consider it his duty to make an appointment with Mr. Notman at once. The advantages which the Boston studio must necessarily offer over those possessed by the Cambridge studio are such that many men, especially those who live in Boston or the vicinity, will prefer to have their sittings there. Such men should apply to the photographer immediately for appointments, and urge all their friends to do the same.
