The members of the University are divided into two great classes, those who have heard Professor Copeland read, and those who have not. The latter, of course, are new men who have not as yet had the opportunity simply because the first reading of the year is scheduled for this evening.
No man can say that he is really a part of the University until he has heard "Copey" read. And once having been present at one of the readings he follows the path to them, beaten by the countless footsteps of men in former years, as often as the privilege is given, which, like all desirable events, comes far too rarely.
Strategical knowledge gained from experience in years past will ensure the presence of the upperclassmen long before the door closes at five minutes after eight. So we want to whisper a word of friendly advice to the uninitiated. Seats and standing room are not only going to be at a premium, but they are going to be unobtainable for even moderately late arrivals.
