The Union, which has been a spiritless place for the last few years, takes on new life this year under the Freshman regime. Far from being merely an eating-place, it bids fair to become an important unifying influence during the chaotic first days of first-year men. The Freshman class, usually inarticulate and paralyzed, is to find a voice in the newly appointed Committee of Ten, which has been selected with a strong attempt to secure a representative group. While this committee will deal with certain of the routine matters of funds and smokers, there is good hope that it will transcend these activities and become a really effective intermediary between the class and the officers of the university.

The venture is a laudable one, and will have served its purpose well if it helps to reduce that trying period of adjustment which attends the emergence of the college man from the schoolboy stage.
