It is with pain and regret that the CRIMSON refers to another of the time-dishonored practices which have been handed down from generation to generation of Harvard students. But just at this time some such reference seems absolutely necessary perhaps for the benefit of freshmen if of no one else. There is a certain class of men in college who seem to think that simply because they may have passed an examination, they are justified in making life hideous for a day or two to the poor unfortunates who are their neighbors, and who are still grinding for their own examinations. They play the piano, dance, sing, or rather howl, and render themselves generally obnoxious.
Of course this is only thoughtlessness on their part; but cannot these men restrain their exuberant joy until their unfortunate neighbors can unite with them in burying all unpleasant reminiscences of the "Semis."
