EDITORS DAILY CRIMSON.- Allow me to offer a slight remonstrance to your editorial of the other day objecting to the hour examinations. While they may be disagreeable in some cases I think as a rule they are beneficial, especially in hard or doubtful courses. They count very little on the year's mark and no cramming need be done for them except by a few lazy men, whom it will not injure to "brace' once or twice during the year instead of doing all their study for the semiannuals. And they certainly are of great use in giving one an idea of the nature of the questions on the midyear papers and of the kind of work expected there. Besides they are excellent tests to let a man see whether he has worked too much or too little on his course. Of course a little of them goes a great way, but I think in many courses we can hardly afford to do without them.
