To the Editors of the Crimson:
A few days ago you published a letter from the Class Committee which stated that the wearing of caps without the gowns after the coming recess would be meaningless. In regard to this it seems that wearing the caps would be very significant, for if a man had on the cap it would be just as apparent that he was a Senior as it would be if he had on both the cap and gown, and this is the main object of wearing either of them, that a man may wear something which makes him appear a Senior, not for the benefit of other classes but to give the graduating class a more united feeling. Then besides, the gown is a very clumsy thing to wear and is also very hot in warm weather, and for these reasons would not be worn as generally or as often as simply the cap probably would be. Therefore why not have a class meeting as soon as possible and get the opinion of the class on this subject, for if anything in regard to this is to be done it should be done at once.
