THE FRESHMAN RED BOOK
Whenever anyone proposes to put through a new idea in the University, there is usually some skeptic who protests because he cannot find the all-important precedent. The Freshman Red Book has not escaped this criticism--it is t be found printed in another column today.
This criticism is satisfactorily answered by the editors of the book, who completely justify their position by not claiming to represent the class. And as for their calling their book "The Freshman Red Book," why have they not as much right to use the name of the class without special authorization as the CRIMSON or the Lampoon has to use that of the University?
Although the value of this book may be ephemeral in the light of the future activities of the class, it will be an interesting record of 1913's Freshman year and should serve in some measure to promote class feeling. Provided that the book is creditably edited, of which we have no doubt, we can find no ground for adverse criticism; and as the book may be of decided value, its editors should receive the co-operation to which their enterprise entitles them.
