In urging our readers to attend the Authors' Reading to be held in Sander's Theatre on the evening of Feb. 27th, we feel that we are advocating a highly worthy object. It may, perhaps, be well to state that the reading is given in aid of the Longfellow Memorial Fund, and that several well-known authors, among them Julia Ward Howe, Edward Everett Hale and Thomas Wentworth Higginson, have promised to read selections from their works. The entertainment cannot fail to be interesting, and the object is so worthy that we are anxious to impress on all that it is their duty to attend. Even if attendance on the part of some is impossible, it should not prevent them from buying a ticket to forward the cause. Longfellow was so universally beloved, and was so long identified with our college, that it has now become our duty to see that our honored professor and poet has a fitting memorial. Tickets for the reading have been placed on sale at the Auditor's office in Memorial Hall and also at Sever's bookstore.
