Our correspondent this morning expresses the feeling of many undergraduates in his communication. The question of having an annual dinner for each of the four classes had been often discussed in former years, and it seemed to be a common opinion that freshman and sophomore dinners would detract from the junior dinner and that there would not then be a very enthusiastic support of any class dinner. If this is true it is to be deplored, for it shows how great has been the decay of class spirit here. If it is not true then it would be an excellent thing to substitute a regular annual dinner for the three upper classes, for it would unite the classes as nothing else could. Last year the senior dinner was well attended and a great success, and the interest taken in it was not in any way lessened by the dinner of the year before. This would seem to show that there is class spirit enough here to hold a dinner each year for every class without diminishing the enthusiasm at any one of them.

We believe that a sophomore class dinner would be a good thing, but that a freshman dinner is not advisable. The freshman class is seldom sufficiently united to make such an event a success, and if it were not successful it would take much of the interest from the class dinners that came afterwards.
