To the Editors of the Crimson:
It may not seem out of place to take up again at the beginning of another year the old complaint of behavior of students in the class room. In Geology IV, when the steropticon is used, and the room consequently darkened, an excellent chance is given to the children in the course to cough, chuckle, stamp and whistle, and this chance was used to good advantage in the last lecture, to the discomfort of the instructor and others. As this course is opened to the entire college, it is unquestionable that the disturbance is caused chiefly by freshmen. Upper class men have come to learn that in college they are supposed to be gentlemen, and not conduct themselves like boys. Freshmen always have to learn this fact, and the large number of men in Geology IV who appropriately bear this title have yet to learn it. Very truly yours,
