Some time ago, owing to the lack of men who took their exercise during the evening, the Hemenway Gymnasium was closed shortly after half-past seven. The motives of economy of labor and gas which led to this step were met at the time by no counteracting arguments. In fact, there were none. Nobody used the gymnasium in the evening, and there was no reason for keeping it open. This, however, was in that intermediate period after the men gave up indoor exercise and before the very hot weather had come. But during these last hot days complaints have been heard to the effect that the gymnasium should be open during the evening, so that at least the baths could be used. The refreshment of a cool bath after a hot day's work would do a great deal to ease the trials of the examination period. There seems, moreover, to be not a slight call for the baths. There is no knowing, of course, how much the baths would actually be used, but it certainly seems worth while to throw the gymnasium open for the rest of the evenings this week to see if the demand is not really a serious one.
