Freshman Class Dinner.

To the Editors of the Crimson:
The question of the advisability of the Freshman class having a dinner has recently been brought up. Such a move would, it seems to me, be an excellent thing. In the case of the upper classes, a yearly dinner has almost invariably served to bring out class spirit and class sympathy and to bind the members of the class closer together. In these days of very large classes, it is growing more and more difficult to rouse real class spirit and class enthusiasm, and everything which tends to bring out class spirit should be done. One of the best ways has proved to be the class dinner. Why should each class wait until its Sophomore year before having a large dinner of this kind? Then, too, there are many excellent men in each class who are not "discovered" till comparatively late in their College course, much to their own loss and that of their classmates. If an opportunity be given the members of an entering class to meet one another in a social and agreeable way, the chance of such a thing would be greatly lessened.
Therefore, I suggest that Freshman classes have a class dinner. JUNIOR.
