To the Editors of the Crimson:
The advisability of returning to the old custom of wearing caps and gowns on "class day" has been discussed by several of the recent graduating classes, but this discussion has as yet let to no positive results. The chief objection heretofore seems to have been a general reluctance on the part of each class to assume the responsibility of inaugurating the change. The custom of wearing dress suits, in the morning, out of doors, and in all sorts of weather is both inconvenient and ridiculous. The cap and gown are at once more suitable, more comfortable and more suitable, more comfortable and more dignified.
Let us hope, then, that the class of '91 will revive this good old custom at Harvard.
