A question of peculiar importance and interest to every student of Harvard is who shall be dean of the college faculty next year. Scarcely any matter can be of more importance, for the effective work and progress of college life, than the election of a competent and suitable man for this position, by the overseers. While almost every one would have some particular choice, if the election rested with us, none will be disposed to grumble at the actual choice, provided that some one reasonably popular and efficient be selected. It would be mere presumption to claim that the students are at all competent to make any affirmative choice from among the various candidates for the position, but it is certainly fair for them to demand that no one, who by general agreement is believed to be unsuited for the place, and whose unpopularity would impair the efficiency of his administration, should be chosen to an office so closely connected with the welfare and interests of every student.
