The Harvard University Catalogue will soon be published, and we are afraid, will appear in its ugly bluish cover. This should not be, for the catalogue, being representative of the college, ought to be covered both in the paper and cloth editions with the college color. Why, when crimson is so handsome a color, the editor should see fit to have it covered in a weak imitation of the color of another college is a mystery. Many years ago the publisher stated that no crimson paper or cloth was obtainable. Such, we believe, is not now the case; at any rate enough time has elapsed for such colored cloth to be manufactured. Let us hope the new catalogue will come out in a covering suitable to the college it represents.

There is one other point in which the catalogue seems to us deficient,- in not printing the examination papers; at least the final papers of the various election courses ought to be given. As it now is, one is often forced to spend 25 or 50 cents for one single paper, which one may only wish to use once or twice. Including these papers in the catalogue, would make it all the more valuable and interesting, besides making it more clearly an exponent and index to the work and aims of the University.
