THE PRIMROSE PATH

Perhaps the Harvard yearlings are a precocious group of nibs and know that it takes more than a stork to produce the numerous progeny which clutter up the landscape. Or perhaps they are just not interested in the juicy topic of typhoid carriers, vitamins, and microbes.

Indeed, ever since the righteous days of Cotton Mather, Harvard men have attended afternoon Hygience lectures with all the zest of a courtesan at a prayer meeting. It was probably too much to expect that even a new regime in the Hygiene Building could change over-night the traditional attitude of Harvard men towards the subject of health. In view of this feeling demonstrated again day before yesterday in New Lecture Hall, Dr. Bock's abolition of the voluntary lectures appears as a logical, though unfortunate, course of action.

Since the mountain won't stagger over to Mohammed and since it seems essential that the Freshmen should receive some knowledge of hygiene, the current plan to have informal sessions in the Union addressed by men of national reputation seems to offer a satisfactory solution.
