To those of the outside world who are wont to rail at the jeunesse doree and the "petted aristocracy" of our colleges, and particularly of Harvard, we commend as a very instructive instance of the much talked of fastidiousness and aversion to manual labor on the part of collegians, the occurrence of last Saturday forenoon on Holmes field, when, manfully seizing shovels and scrapers, two hundred Harvard students applied themselves with a will to the labor of clearing the entire field and benches of snow. This, it should be remembered, was a labor purely voluntary on their part and performed without reluctance. The same instance affords another moral equally pleasant. The eleven could have received in no other way surer evidence of the enthusiastic support of the college. This assurance can indeed but be gratifying.
