The number of cases of sickness caused by the recent changeability of the spring weather emphasizes the pressing need of a suitable University Infirmary. As it is now, those who are seriously sick must either be taken to some distant hospital or else put up at the so-called Hospital on Holmes Field, where the accommodations are hopelessly inadequate.
It is understood that the Corporation, although it has had the infirmary question under consideration for over a year, has not as yet taken any definite action on account of the difficulty in obtaining a proper site. However this may be, it looks at present as though the Corporation were not sufficiently impressed with the actual need of such an institution. It would seem that such questions as those of obtaining a convenient situation and financial support should be looked to with greater promptness when the physical welfare of students is interested.
