An indication that the recent discussion in the Nation of the so-called senior society evil at Yale has not been without effect on the college itself, is seen in the fact that at a meeting of the senior class of the college last week a resolution condemning the system was lost by a very narrow vote. Naturally the discussion is one that chiefly interests Yale men, since the society system in vogue at New Haven has very few points of similarity with the system at any other college. As it is it must be considered an excellent thing that so large a proportion of the present senior class at Yale has had the courage to hold to and express its convictions in this manner. It is not likely that the end of the discussion has been reached. It is probably just beginning.
