We cannot see that any harm will ensue from having bonfires in the yard upon great, occasions, yet can the college afford to make a universal principle of such action; for who shall say when the occasion warrants more than the usual firework display? Shall it be left to the judgment of the excited victors, or shall our noble conference committee post a bulletin to the effect that "If Harvard wins to-day the victory will be worthy of a huge bonfire." Yet we are undergraduates but once, and let us celebrate while we may. Surely the freshmen on Wednesday night showed that through all their performance there was still an undercurrent of order which prevented any action that was not ruled by reason. We understand that the owners of whatever property was put on the fire, are to be reimbursed by the class. Surely then let the college render the verdict of justifiable bonfire.
