Caps and Gowns.
To the Editors of the Crimson:
Although the request of the Class Day Committee for an expression of opinion on the wearing of caps and gowns has met with no visible response through the columns of the CRIMSON, this should not be taken as an evidence of entire apathy. Several men, with whom I have talked on the subject, have expressed a wish that we might wear the caps and gowns for some time previous to Class Day, say from the first of May or of June.
The fact should not be overlooked that it would be comparatively easy to become accustomed to a gown, for the custom of going without coats and hats was fairly inaugurated last spring, and the argument can no longer be used that the gown simply adds to the discomfort of a coat. Furthermore, the wearing of caps and gowns would make it possible for all Seniors to know their class-mates and officers, by sight at least.
I would suggest that the Class Day Committee take a postal card vote of the class, as was done last year. SENIOR.
