There appeared in this column last June an editorial under the caption "Stygian Hailways," which condemned the practice of extinguishing gas-lights in the hallways of Yard dormitories at midnight. In convenience, risk, and, "in case of fire, absolute danger" were cited as reasons for remedying matters. It would seem that the recent fire in Randolph furnished strong support to our position at that time. The Yard buildings certainly are not fire-proof; nor are they oversupplied with easy means of egress. With the Yard itself none too brilliantly lighted up at night, it is hardly more than sane precaution to do away with all needless hindrances to the quickest and safest possible escapes in a time of urgency. It may happen that the economy involved in the practice of unlighted hall-ways at night will prove penny wise but pound foolish.
