The meeting of the Student Council last evening brought forth several signs which give promise of an alert and active leadership by that body for the coming year, In particular, the appointment of a Committee to Investigate the Problems of Education at Harvard indicates the assumption by the Council of one of the most important of its legitimate functions. Final judgment on this action must, of course, be suspended until the new Committee has justified itself by its deeds. At least, the creation of such a body is proof of a healthy attitude on the part of undergraduates. It has often been asserted that one of the greatest troubles in the colleges lies with the students themselves. If this be true, then the fact that they are now beginning to realize that their development is primarily their own affair, speaks well for the future.
