EDITORS HARVARD HERALD: An example of a judicious use of hissing occurred in Sever 11 Wednesday afternoon at Prof. James' lecture. Every American citizen has a right to hiss anything that displeases him, and this right was exercised in a good cause on that occasion. The lecture room was packed to its fullest capacity and of course the closeness was almost unbearable. Last year a man fainted at the very corresponding lecture in this course. In spite of this, a man near the windows attempted to close the few windows that were open. The rest of the audience very properly hissed him. Some men seem to have a mania for closing windows, however disagreeable the close air may be to others. This is done in many of the recitations, and it is to be hoped that the section will insist upon its right to hiss.
