On Wednesday morning at 9.30 o'clock about sixty undergraduates and graduates gathered around the John Harvard statue in the Delta to celebrate the 304th anniversary of the founder's birth. Mr. W. C. Lane '81 gave a short eulogy addressed to the person of John Harvard as represented by the statue, expressing the pride we feel in bearing his name A. F. Pickernell '14, assisted by a number of the Chapel choir, led in singing "Fair Harvard," which was followed by a cheer for John Harvard and a regular College cheer.

The meeting then adjourned to the chapel, where Bishop Hughes conducted a special service in honor of the occasion.

The service was distinguished by the singing of an old Harvard hymn.
