In another column we present a communication on the subject of the Total Abstinence League. As our correspondent suggests, the size of this society is by no means a fair representation of the sentiment of the college on this subject. Many persons who really are in accord with the objects of the society, both in feeling and practice, fail to join, either from a feeling that any pledge on such a subject is objectionable or because they do not care enough about the matter to take the necessary trouble. Still the tendency of the society is a good one, and the number of members under the circumstances is an indication that the common idea of the universal dissipation prevailing at all colleges is a mistaken one. The importance of correcting the mistaken impressions prevalent on this subject throughout the country should do much to counterbalance any unimportant considerations that prevent a man from adding his influence to that of the society. If a man really feels that the result aimed at by the society is a desirable one, he should help the society in bringing about the result. There is, of course, a reasonable ground of doubt about the real truth of the question in hand. but for those to whom the question seems a settled one, their course is very clear.
