Today the CRIMSON begins its fifteenth year as the daily paper of the University. Year by year the CRIMSON has been progressing, and it begins publication now with a larger staff of editors and greater facilities than ever before. As the University has grown large. and the interests of its students more diversified, the usefulness of the CRIMSON has increased in proportion, until today it is almost indispensable to the student.
The purpose of the paper is too plain and its functions too well known to need further explanation here. Its great value to the student doubtless lies in the fact that it has come to be the medium of communication between the officers of instruction and government and the students, and between the officers and members of all University teams. It affords the student the only means of keeping in close touch with the affairs of his college world.
The CRIMSON is grateful for the hearty support which it has always received from the members of the University and will do all in its power to merit the same support in the future.
