There is one custom at Harvard which has survived as a relic of the barbarous times of hazing, and that is the initiation of freshmen on Bloody Monday night. The better sentiment of the college has long been opposed to this institution. The fact that it is an old custom is no excuse for its continuation. The college has outgrown such schoolboy tricks as the Bloody Monday rushing, and never was in sympathy with the spirit which prompts other mere objectionable feature of the demonstration. It is time that the true feeling of Harvard should make itself known by active opposition to any uproar tonight The class of '94 need feel no obligation to take part in the proceedings. They will gain more respect and honor for themselves by refusing to participate than by winning every rush. but it is to the class of '93 that we appeal most strongly to put an end to the disgraces of Bloody Monday. They will naturally be the leaders, and the decision to continue or stop the custom rests mainly with them. They have been here long enough to learn that the college feeling is against the Bloody Monday initiation; and they ought to put an end to this remnant of barbarity.
