It may possibly seem inopportune, on an occasion so solemn as the last day before the mid-year examinations, to speak of any sort of festivities, but is it not time for the two upper classes to make arrangements for their annual dinners? The juniors last year held their annual dinner on February 18, as soon as the mid-years were over. The class of '90 held their junior dinner on February 19, 1889. In each case only about a hundred men were present. As the junior dinner affords the first opportunity for a social meeting of the whole class, it is eminently desirable that more men should attend. Perhaps if the date of the dinner were fixed longer beforehand than is usual, a larger attendance could be secured. This suggestion applies with equal force to the senior dinner, which was held last year on February 24, with only eighty men present.
