A Demand for the Facts of the Case.

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Today's CRIMSON contains an account of a proposal to save coal by advancing all College engagements by one hour. This proposal, put forward by the Student Council, is to be voted on next week by the student body. May I suggest that if the Student Council desires a large affirmative vote, it would do well to explain somewhat explicitly in these columns just how the change of hours would produce the desired economy?

I think that none of us, in these days, will feel inclined to prefer our own convenience to the general welfare. Neverthelss, small as the sacrifice may be, one does like to understand clearly to what end it is made. B. C. CLOUGH 1G.
