THE 'Varsity Glee Club starts on its western trip this afternoon and it has the best wishes of the University for as pleasant and successful journey. This trip has now become an expected annual occurrence and in some respects it is of no little importance. It is doubtful whether the club is in greater interest in Harvard to the extent of drawing more men here. Probably few students come here from the west because they have heard the Harvard Glee Club sing. But the club exerts good influence in drawing graduates together for a familiar entertainment that brings backs many pleasant recollections. It keeps alive Harvard spirit and interest among her graduates and from this point of view the trip of the club is of considerable value.
