FAHRENHEIT AND EFFICIENCY
Even the most normally complacent and unobserving of Harvard's dripping sons would respond instantly to the suggestion, no matter how veiled or subtle, that yesterday was an exceptionally hot day. Many men, in fact, who had stayed in Cambridge expressly to study for examinations, found refuge only in what Professor Copeland used to consider in pre-war days the most thoroughly established of all Harvard undergraduate activities, namely, "sitting around."
That it is less easy to concentrate when the mercury hits 100 degrees in the shade than at mid-years, when the wind whistles through mackinaws and woolen hockey tights no one will deny. But at the same time much real studying can be done on even the hottest of days. One had only to step into the coolest spot in Cambridge,-- Widener Reading Room,--yesterday to prove that this quite staggeringly hopeful fact is true.
