ON Thursday evening a meeting of members of all the departments of the University was held in Holden Chapel, to discuss the question of changing the color of the University. Mr. Watson, President H. U. B. C., occupied the Chair, and Mr. G. W. Greene was chosen Secretary. A motion was made by Mr. Clark, '75, that "the color of all departments of the University should be declared to be Crimson." In the discussion which followed Mr. Van Duzer spoke in favor of retaining the Magenta, while Mr. Clark favored the change. Remarks were made by several other undergraduates, on one side and another, when it was discovered that several graduates were among the audience. The President therefore asked Mr. Fenno, '66, to express his opinion. Mr. Fenno said that all the graduates were in favor of Crimson. Dr. Farnham of the same class explained that he had introduced magenta into the College by buying handkerchiefs of that color for the crew when he could get no nearer shade to crimson. The ayes and nays were taken, the motion was passed by a large majority, and Crimson is now the color of Harvard.
