CLASS BUTTONS.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The decision of the Student Council in the matter of class buttons seems to be eminently sound. The resulting confusion which would inevitably arise if the members of three classes were wearing buttons--and particularly in the event of less than the whole of any class wearing them--a development which can in no way be insured against--is to be avoided. Class buttons do not create class unity. They can only express that unity if it is already in existence. As a means of identification they lose their claim to existence with each class passing through a year of cohabitation in the first year of its college career. It is not class selfishness on the part of the Seniors but wise reluctance to refrain from ill-calculated demonstrations of reform that leads to this action.
