The extension of the Thanksgiving recess till the Monday following Thanksgiving Day is a matter of interest to every student. Every one knows that little is accomplished by holding recitations on the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving: but many students are kept in Cambridge on the holiday by unwillingness to cut recitations and lectures on those days. The number of students who take advantage of the rule regarding voluntary attendance is so large that many of the instructors feel bound to repeat their lectures in the following week, and thus the men, who, from over-conscientiousness or other reasons, have been unwilling to cut, in the end gain nothing by their faithfulness to their work. The petition for extension has already received many signatures, but needs many more before it will be of sufficient moment to move the stern hearts of the faculty. Every student, whether he intends to remain in Cambridge over Thanksgiving or not, should sign the petition.
