We caution students in the college buildings against leaving their doors unlatched, or leaving anything of value outside their doors. As a natural result of the condition of the turf in the yard and of the severity of the weather and of rather lax efforts on the part of the yard authorities, that most objectionable element of Cambridge society, an element the thought of which means quite as much as the name, has besieged the college dormitories. And here for its labors this objectionable element finds opportunities for the grossest kind of misbehavior, and accepts them most assiduously. What it can put its hands on, it takes; what it can destroy, it destroys; what does not suit its degraded taste it very soon tones down to that taste by its own peculiar processes. And so property is stolen, doors are marred and smeared hallways are - to put it mildly - littered, lights are turned out, et cetera, et cetera. In a word, this "objectionable element" is trying to place the red flannel banner of its famous legions, which has waved so triumphantly over the college grounds, on every dormitory in the yard. A crusade against these transgressors cannot be undertaken too promptly or too zealously.
