THE FORUM TONIGHT.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The meeting of the Forum tonight is especially important because the subject for discussion will be "The Harvard Union." Of late there has been much complaint that the Union is failing to fulfill its purpose of bringing together the members of the University in a great democratic union. Repeatedly has attention been called to the many obvious advantages and benefits to be derived from belonging to the Union, and from time to time the management has added new attractions to the institution with the hope of inducing more men to join. A great deal of the criticism that has been passed on the Union is unjust, but it is admitted by everyone that there is room for improvement. To make the Union what it should be is a problem, the solution of which rests primarily with the undergraduates; the alumni have done their part. The greatest difficulty in managing the Union has been in finding out just what the student body wants. Opinion is very strong on the subject, but heretofore there has been no means of bringing it to a focus. At its last meeting to discuss the need of a new gymnasium, the Forum indicated its possibilities as a medium for presenting to the Student Council the most diversified phases of undergraduate opinion. The Forum tonight offers an unexcelled opportunity for comparison of opinions and for the presentation of suggestions from which we hope to see develop the solution of the perennial "Union problem." This problem, as we have said, must be solved primarily by the undergraduates; and it is therefore essential, if tonight's Forum is to be a success, that the undergraduates take the most active and important part in the discussion.
