Through a Glass, Darkly
The following paragraphs are excerpts from two anonymous articles in the University of Washington Daily, written by a "Junior who was last year a Washington pre-journalism student."
"The College, which is distinguished from the University as being for undergraduates, is located in a plot of ground about three blocks square, surrounded on two sides by a low wooden fence.
"Studies at Harvard are far stiffer, and grades much lower, than at Washington. If one drew down a straight B at Washington, and, upon coming to Harvard were to work as hard here, he would be most lucky to get a straight C. . . . .
"Harvard is an old university, comparatively speaking, and so one finds old traditions and customs hanging on among the old buildings. In one of the old dorms, for example, is a list of the men who have occupied the rooms for the past 115 years, and included on the list are some notable American figures. In one of the dorms the name of Oliver Wendell Holmes is scratched on the fire-place."
