At the time of writing, only about fifty men have signed the book for the junior class dinner. This is an extraordinarily small number from so large a class as Ninety-two; and the apparent lack of interest must be due rather to a misunderstanding of the character of the dinner than to total indifference. A class dinner is always one of the most democratic gatherings in college. Every man gives up altogether whatever clique or society feeling he may have to make the class the unit; every element is united into one body which has the welfare of the class for its first object.
Ninety-two, in her course thus far, has shown not a little tendency to break up into factions. The coming dinner is the only occasion on which these elements can be united; and the individual members of the class will show themselves sadly wanting in good feeling if they let this opportunity go by. It lies in the power of the juniors to make their class, by the unity of good-fellowship, the strongest in spirit and action in the college. We sincerely hope they will use their power.
