In his address at the dedication of the Harvard Union, Major Higginson suggested that it might be found desirable to inscribe somewhere in the building the names of the Harvard men who fought in the Spanish War, and especially the names of these who died in the service of their country at that time. The idea was that as Memorial Hall and Soldiers Field have recalled to students the brave deeds of Harvard men in War of the Rebellion, so the Union might serve in a smaller, but just as honorable, way to keep alive the memory of the Harvard men who fought in Cuba. Why this suggestion, coming as it did from Major Higginson, has never been developed, we do not understand, or at least have never heard explained. It may be that the first few years of its existence the Union had little time for anything but experiments in the midst of which Major Higginson's suggestion was forgotten. Now, however, the position of the Union is well established, and we know no better way for its new officers to widen its interest among Harvard graduates and undergraduates than by dedicating some fitting portion of it to our heroes and veterans of the Spanish War.
