We understand that the leader of the brass band is having no little difficulty in getting the men in the band together for practice. The college depends on the band, not, to be sure, for the winning of some new championship from Yale, but rather for some good outdoor concerts later in the spring. The band too is an organization which is destined materially to help Harvard's reputation for musical ability. We hope therefore that in neither of these particulars, enjoyment or reputation, the college is to be disappointed. A little practice now on the part of the members of the band will win fame and gratitude for themselves, pleasure and recreation for the college at large, and new laurels in musical accomplishments for Harvard. With such high aims set before them, we do not see how the members of the college band can allow themselves to yield to any influences toward Harvard indifference which they may find around them.
