The long list of Juniors who have been allotted their rooms in the Yard for next year is a pleasant reminder of the struggling innovation that has developed into an unwavering custom. It gives us the unusual feeling that here is an achievement which can not receive anything but unreserved congratulation, and must receive that congratulation, for it is not every day that the habits of a group of men can be swerved so successfully into a right channel. It brings forth a smile of satisfaction to count up the figures and find that 305 out of a class of 420 have shown wisdom enough to choose to live their Senior year in the Yard. Last year there were two hundred and eighty wise men and that was considered a bewilderingly large proportion. Such impetus has the movement that now anything seems possible for next year.
