There has always been a large amount of grumbling on the part of junior classes because the date of their required English examination is usually fixed for the day but one before Class-Day. Such grumbling seems to us wholly justifiable. There is no apparent reason why the whole junior class should be compelled to remain in Cambridge a week or ten days after the examinations of the majority are over. Men are forced to spend a week of idleness here, which they might spend much more pleasantly or profitably elsewhere. This year the junior forensic examination is set for the twentieth of June. Now we notice that there are no examinations set for the thirteenth, just a week previous, and we can see no good reason why the English instructors should not be requested to change the examination in English C to the thirteenth. This would give many men an opportunity to get away earlier than they otherwise would, and such an arrangement would not interfere with any of the other examinations. The list of final examinations is only provisional, and we make this suggestion thus early in order that the change may be easily made, should it meet with the approval of the proper authorities. We have received several communications and many direct requests urging us to make this suggestion, and we hope that the matter may be arranged more satisfactorily than it is at present.
