EDITOR HERALD-CRIMSON.-In yesterday's issue of your paper, "Proctor" attempts to prove that the temperature of Mass. Was comfortable during the examination in History 2, because he did not open any windows. If there is no heat in an old building like Massachusetts and the temperature without is but a little above zero, the warmth of the room is hardly suitable for an examination, even if the windows are not open. Besides, the cold seems much more severe to a man who is sitting on a hard bench, cramped and motionless, than it does to another man who has the opportunity of walking about and thus preventing his limbs from becoming stiff with the cold. It is all very well for a proctor to walk up and down and criticise the action of men who turn up their coat-collars, but let the proctor sit down for a few hours and endeavor to hold a pen in his benumbed fingers, and I think he would soon view the matter in a different light.
