One of the great contributions which American College education has made to the joy of living is apparently the institution of student third class. For the benefit of hardened cynics it may be well to explain that no Lampoon pun is intended in the foregoing. Reference merely was made to the great rush of American students for the ports of Europe which has not only lead to an overwhelming increase in the business done by the photographic board of the CRIMSON but has resulted in the conversion of lower decks of passenger liners into low rate Atlantic accomodations.
Chief among the attractions of the European tours advertised by the steamship companies involved is the American student orchestra. This institution ensures that even when in search of that peculiarly European commodity, culture, the innocent abroad may fortify himself with the most characteristic product of the homeland, Jazz. Harvard men may therefore congratulate themselves that their institution is in a position to contribute to this latest of conveniences for the foreign tourist. At least two all Harvard orchestras are already booked for the Atlantic service this summer. May they fulfill their high mission of proving to students from all over the country that Harvard can still be collegiate if sufficient need arises.
