We wish to call the attention of the class-day committee to a matter which can be made to have a very material influence on the success of the class-day of Eighty-seven. It has been the custom on several class-days in the past to arrange that while the classes are engaged in the exercises around the tree the chimes of Christ church shall play "Fair Harvard." During the silence which follows the cheering, the sound of the chimes lends a significance to the hour which is highly impressive. One who has heard the strains of the grand old ode thus rendered, and has experienced the deep impression which is made upon all, cannot but wish that the custom should be made a university institution and thus give to each class-day an added significance as unique among collegiate graduating customs. We speak thus publicly that due attention may be given to the matter and therefore its success assured.
