Senior Dormitories Advocated.

The subject of Seniors rooming in the Yard was brought up for discussion and the opinion of the Council was expressed in the following motion: "The Student Council endorses most heartily continuation of the present system of Senior dormitories by the class of 1912. The Council believes that the success of Senior dormitories has much to do with the future unity of any class, and will co-operate in every way with the committee now in charge of this matter."
