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:

We have presented to the directors of the Dining Association a remonstrance signed by more than 500 members, asking that they repeal the regulation closing the hall on Vesper evenings.

The directors are plainly a body representing the students in the hall, elected by the students, intended merely to carry into action the will of the students. It is thus their imperative duty either to grant any request signed by so large a body of students or else in refusing to grant it, to refuse on the ground that a more intimate knowledge of the matter in hand would reverse the opinion of the signers of this request. Having taken the latter course, they owe to their constituency an explanation sufficiently sound to convert the signers of the remonstrance. Should they refuse to make this explanation, the directors would prove themselves disloyal to the men who have placed them in office.
