IT is to be hoped that the rumor prevailing among the members of the Junior Class that next year the privilege of voluntary recitations is to be restricted to the Seniors is without foundation. One year is not sufficient to give the system a fair trial. It is not to be wondered at if this new freedom, when first granted to a class of young men who for two years have been strictly bound to the recitation-room, should, to some extent, be abused; but the next class to enjoy the privilege have been warned by the experience of their predecessors of the danger of abusing it, the evil of which the Faculty complain will cure itself in due time, and then, the advantages, without the drawbacks usually attending privileges when at first granted, will be demonstrated. At any rate, the system should have a fair trial, and too frequent changes in the methods of instruction, with a policy so constantly vacillating that no plan of study can be carried out, must very soon necessitate a return to the prescribed system.
