The new edition of the college regulations, which appears to-day, has been awaited by the students at large with breathless interest, and beyond all doubt the important changes that have been hopefully expected either will or will not be found. It has long been our belief that all the provisions regarding the system of petitions should be abolished, and we shall not feel able to regard the revision of the regulations a success if this change has not been made. We naturally feel no little regret at not having received a prospectus of this new edition, whereby we might learn it special superiority to the old, but having only the old regulations before us, we cannot venture to recommend the recent version. We merely urge upon all that they be no slower to censure than they are to praise; and if treated in this fair way, we believe that the regulations will live or die as they deserve.
