APOLOGIA

The conclusion of the CRIMSON'S volume for the collegiate year demands a short word of explanation. In its editorial columns throughout the year a wider range of topics has received attention than has been the custom of past years. In spite of such range the constant policy has been to interpret events from the view of the college man, and if not to interpret to discuss, and if not to discuss to question.

In pursuance of such policy, the editorial matter has been in greater part the work of the Whole Board. The Board is large enough, and responsive enough to the currents of student thought, to represent the general sentiment of the College.

It has not been as moulders of optimism, but representatives of opinion, that the Board has endeavored to speak. Its success is not in whether it has moulded opinion, but caused men to think.
