A RADCLIFFE DAY

Inaugurations are usually attended with pomp and circumstance of some kind, often of the kind which causes the vulgus to "throw their sweaty night caps up." But the pomp attending the inauguration of Dean Comstock as president of Radcliffe will be derived solely from the impressiveness of the assembly and of the occasion. In this age of enlightenment when greater and greater numbers of young women are bent upon more than an ordinary education, the post of president of a woman's college has become no longer a sinecure but a position of great responsibility and labor. Because of this very labor and the time necessary for it, the University must feel selfishly glad that dean Briggs will henceforth not have his interests divided. And by the same token, Radcliffe should receive more constant attention from a head solely responsible to Radcliffe. Dean Comstock brings with her a reputation for scholastic soundness and administrative ability. The CRIMSON extends its hearty good wishes for the success of the new president.
