In a recent issue of the Princetonian, we find an allusion to the diminished size of the entering freshman class at Harvard, caused, it is said, by the mingling of upper with lowerclassmen in the same course of study.

The statement as to the number of men in the class of '90 is untrue, as the size is as great as that of any of the entering classes for some years. The objection made to the studying of the same line of work by freshmen and seniors is a very good one, but hardly applies to the Harvard system for the freshman courses, as is well known, are different from the advanced work in the different departments, and have always been so since the opening of electives to freshmen in 1884.
