FAREWELL CAMBRIDGE.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The University does not remember a two weeks' Christmas vacation. It is a long time to be away from Cambridge just before mid-years; but it is a longer time to stay in Cambridge in the haunted solitudes of the deserted College. Yet the men who are doomed to that fate will not find Cambridge completely cold and empty, for there will be Christmas parties at President Lowell's and at Phillips Brooks House and two University Teas during the recess. These are hardly perfect substitutes for parties at home, but they come from a heartfelt desire on the part of our shepherds to make us all comfortable at Christmas time, and so they will help fill a gap.

Our comic brother in his own droll way hit the nail on the head several times: we say that we are going home to rest and work. We are hypocrites. We know that we are going home to have a Christmas vacation, and that does not even mean rest. Work and worry and rest are foreign to this season. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
