TO THE EDITORS OF THE CRIMSON:-
I WOULD like, through you, to call the attention of the Faculty to the state of the Chapel in the morning. Immediately after getting out of a warm bed, we are compelled to pass fifteen minutes in a place where the cellar-like chill causes colds and sore throats innumerable. I admit that it is impossible to have the recitation-rooms suitably warmed and ventilated, and am resigned to the colds and headaches I get in those cheerful places. But why there should not be a good fire in the furnace of the Chapel, I fail to understand. As long as attendance at prayers is made compulsory, and is not regarded by the powers that be as a luxury to be made use of sparingly by the student, it seems fit that they should take some care of the body as well as of the soul.
