We invite all members of the University to contribute to this column, but we are not responsible for the sentiments expressed.

To the Editors of the Crimson:

The suggestion of your correspondent that the class of '91 should return to the good old custom of wearing the cap and gown on Class Day, instead of the inappropriate and inconvenient dress suit, is one that will find favor in the eyes of all broad-minded college men. The cap and gown was the students' dress at Harvard before the dress suit was even thought of. Why then should we continue a modern custom that has nothing to recommend it, unless it be the saving of a few dollars? The majority of men would be amply repaid for the expense by the possession of such a memento of one of the great events in their lives. Let not indifference prevent our taking advantage of such a valuable suggestion!

A SENIOR.
