Institute of 1770.
The constitution of the society was also changed on Thursday night. Members in future will have to pay twenty dollars in all, including an admission fee of ten dollars, and ten assessments of one dollar each, payable monthly. Instead of ceasing to be active members at the end of the college year when they are elected to the Institute, men will continue in active membership until the end of the first term of the winter following their admission. The polls are to be left open for two days after nomination.
For a number of years an attempt like this has been made to raise the Institute from the position of too dignified ease in which it stands, but all have failed. It is to be hoped that this effort to make it something more than a name and a library will succeed, as there is at present no real sophomore club in college.
