The Transcript editorial quoted in the adjacent column is as noteworthy as the subject which called it forth. Daily newspapers have the habit of burying educational topics at the tail end of their editorial procession. Like Abou Ben Adhem's name, this one led all the rest.
The frankly critical nature of the "Confidential Guide to College Courses" gave ground for fears that it might be received wrongly as a manifestation of "schoolboy insolence." Both within the University and without, as the Transcript article shows, the general voice has given the CRIMSON credit for a serious desire to be helpful. If, by creating open discussion of such evils as exist in Harvard courses a step shall have been taken to remove them, the CRIMSON'S purpose will be realized.
