The current number of the "Advocate" contains a somewhat ambiguous editorial, the purport of which appears to be a suggestion that the CRIMSON publish outside news. Many college papers devote a great deal of space to such news, and the CRIMSON is frequently criticised for not following their example.

Unusual conditions make such a policy impossible. The University is situated so near to Boston that competition with the morning papers in their own field is inevitable. yet these papers do not go to press until early morning, which would put them in a position to "scoop" habitually an undergraduate daily. Such conditions limit the CRIMSON to strictly collegiate news,--a policy by no means without its compensating advantages.
