To the Editors of the Crimson:

By all means let us have the cap and gown on Class Day. No one will deny the utter incongruity of the comparatively recent practice of wearing evening dress. The only objection to the revival of the old and picturesque costume of (cap) and gown is, perhaps, one of expense; and this objection is easily removed. If a man does not own a dress suit, he is obliged eithfr to buy or to rent one for Class Day. In this case I have no hesitation iu saying that the gown would be much the less expensive costume. If one cannot afford silk, there are other materials which might serve the purpose quite as well; but a gown of silk, even at the most, is an inexpensive affair.
