The independent, self-reliant spirit which has grown up at Harvard, partly as a result of the liberal policy by which the government of the university has intrusted to the students the regulation of their own conduct, is less heard of than its rival, "Harvard indifference," but it exists for all that. When men are treated like men instead of like children they begin to feel and act like men. The two great students' organizations, the Harvard Dining Association and the Harvard Co-operative Society, are evidences that the Harvard undergraduate is pretty well able to take care of himself. He had grumbled at the size of his book and coal bills long enough, and when the way to reduce them was pointed out to him he took it.
The success of the Harvard society has suggested to men at Yale and other colleges to attempt something similar, but as yet nothing but talk has been accomplished. There is no evident reason why Harvard's example cannot be followed by every college in the United States, and in view of the great interest in the experiment manifested at Amherst, Princeton, Yale, Cornell and the University of Pennsylvania, there is yet room for hope that the Harvard society may be only the leader of a long line of useful organizations. If several of our leading colleges could maintain societies of this character they could act together in the importation of foreign books and in some other departments of trade, and could accomplish much more than any organization can hope to do single-handed. A moderate amount of energy and public spirit would suffice to found a strong and useful society at any of the colleges named. - [N. Y. Times.
