THE pamphlet published by Mr. Bolles on "Students' Expenses" at Harvard will be a revelation to those who have the false idea that Harvard is the place for the rich man's son alone. Year by year the rich man's son alone. Year by Year the opportunity is increasing for earnest, intelligent men to work their way through college. The different help associations here are becoming more and more effective. They serve not to bolster a man through his college course but to open the ways for him whereby he can help himself. They bridge over the hard times and doubtless save many from yielding to the discouragements which beset a man who tries to educate himself. That so many have succeeded in securing a college education by their own efforts is something of which we can be truly proud, not only because the University offers so many advantages for this class of men; but because men of so much perseverance and grit are members of the University.
WE have had some enquiries in regard to the form in which communications should the form in which communications should be handed in for publication. In the first place the writing should be on one side of the paper only, a fact disregarded by at least one half of the men who send in contributions. Another point on which we must insist is that the writer sign his name and address though naturally not for publication unless desired. If a communication is not thus properly signed, we do not deem it worthy of consideration. If a man is not willing to let his name be known to the editors, we certainly do not wish to give his ideas to the public. While, too, we invite any one to contribute to our columns. it must be borne in mind that for many good reasons we have to reserve the right of printing such contributions.
