"GENTLEMEN OF THE CRIMSON--"

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Again the graduate and undergraduate editors of the Crimson gather to commemorate the intrepid little band of ten members of the class of 1874, who on the evening of January 23, 1873, launched the CRIMSON on its adventurous life. To the sole member of that group who will be present at this evening's dinner, the present editors of the CRIMSON extend their sincerest greetings. The memory of Henry Childs Merwin '74 can link together the first meeting of a CRIMSON board and tonight's gathering in the Sanetum. The intervening fifty-two years have been filled with journalistic alarums and excursions for generations of editors. Financial, catastrophes, tiffs with athletic teams, brushes with the authorities, and open warfare with impious editors of the Lampoon have all lent color to the CRIMSON'S lengthening past.

Tonight will be an evening devoted to reminiscences and visions.
