The biggest eztia-eurriculum activity
of the College as a whole during the pres-
ent year has been the organisation of a
Harvard Begiment of 1102 men. The
purpose of this body is to give the un-
der-graduates elementary instruction m
military theory, and to give them some
drill in infantry tactics. The Begiment
was formed under the direction of a com-
mittee ai^winted by the Student Coun-
cil. At a mass meeting held in the Union
shortly before Christmas, Pres. Lowdl,
Gen. Pew, of the Massachusetts Militia,
Percy D. Haughton, '99, and W. BUnch-
ard, '16, president of the Student Coun-
dl, spoke in favor of the project. Actual
work started inunediatdy after the holi-
days under the direction of Capt. C.
Cordier, U.S.A., who is in the recruiting
service in Boston. The 1100 members
were divided into eight companies, each
of nearly the full United States war
strength, and temporary non-conmiis-
sioned officers were diosen from the
undergraduates who have been to the
summer camp at Plattsburg or who have
served in a state militia. The ** labora-
tory work" will require drilling one eve-
ning each week until the first of June,
and the solution of a map problem sent
out monthly in the correspondence
courseconductedby the U.S. Army. In
addition, every member of the Begiment
must attend one lecture a week in the
courses on nulitary sdence given during
the second half-year by the University.

Although the presses of the Crinuon
have been installed in its new building
on Plympton St. since the opening of the
academic year, the editorial offices were



not moved into the new location until
the day of the Yale game. The first edi-
tions published from the new offices were
a 44-page issue on the morning of the
football game, this being the largest
undergraduate newspaper ever pub-
lished, and an extra containing a play-
by-pUy account of the Yale game, the
first copy of whidi was off the press 50
seconds after the referee's final whistle
blew. At the semi-annual dections of
the Criwuon^ the first pundi hdd in the
new building, the following officers were
diosen: IVes., D. H. Ingram, '16, of
Chicago, 111.; managing editor, E. A.
Whitney, '17, of Augusta, Me.; editorial
chairman, C. Laporte, '16, of St. Louisa
Mo.; sec., G. M. Hollister, '18, of Grand
Bapids, Midi. The following were
dected to the board at the end of the
competitions of the first half-year: J. P.
Warburg, '17, of Washington, D.C.; G.

B. Bhune, '17, of Taunton; W. Bich-
mond, Jr., '18, ci Little Compton, B.I.;
D. W. Bich, '18, of New Yoric, N.Y.;

C. P. Vogd, '18, of Milwaukee, Wis.;
F. O. Magie, Jr., '18, of YTmnetka, BL

The Txtrnpoon celebrated the fortieth
anniversary of its founding with a oinncr
in the hall of its building on Jan. 29. W,
B. Thayer, '81, a former president of the
Crinuon and editor of the Lampoon, was
toastmaster. About 100 guests were
present, and the speakers induded Pres.
Lowdl, A. W. Longfdlow, '76, Prof.
Barrett Wendell, '77, Judge Bobert
Grant, '73, B. C. Evarts, 'IS, and L. P.
Mansfield, '16. The new officers of the^
Lampoon are: Pres., H. Wentworth, '17,
of Chicago. 111.; Ibis, S. C. Welch, '17, of
Buffalo, N.Y.; trees., H. B. Courteen,

The issuing of a Tery inaccurate Regi^
ter this year has led to mudi discussbn
regarding possible ways to change or
improve this annual guide to student
activities. The faults were in the execu-
tion, not in the planning. Hardly a
angle dub or team appeared in the book
wit] I its officers and members correctly
given. Since the Student Council took
the Register directly under its control,
all of the thought has been put on the
problem of how to publish a book of the
same sise as in past years without losing
money. There seems now to be a more
fundamental issue. The University itself
prints an accurate individual directory
in paper binding for a small charge. In
a large measure the Regisier simply re-
peats this, — at four times the price.
The proper change in the Regisier would
be to put it on a more modest scale. If it
published simply the student organiza-
tions and their members, more time
could be q>ent on correcting copy and
reading proof, and the financial prob-
lems would disappear almost automati-
caUy.

The officers of the Adeocate for 1016-
17 were chosen as follows: Pres., R. N.
Cram, '17, of Kennebunk, Me.; sec., W.
A. NoTTis, '18, of Milwaukee, Wb.;
treas., W. H. Meeker, '17, of New York.

R. Littell, '19, of New York, has been
elected to the board of the Monthly,

Four have been added to the staff of
the lUustraied: R. Coolidge, '10, of



Watertown; J. S. Dole, '18, of Melrose;
S. M. Fairchild, 10, of Oneonta, N.Y.;
J. H. Norweb, '18, of Elyria, O.

Most brilliant in the achievements of
the University Musical Clubs during the
winter has been the work of the Glee
Club, coached by Dr. A. T. Davison, '06.
In December it was invited to sing two '
choruses at the annual concot of the
Cecilia Sodety of Boston. In January
members of the Glee Club, in coopera-
tion with the RadcUffe Choral Sodety,
produced a complete opera, Orpheus, by
Gluck. This project was initiated unsuc-
cessfully last spring. The plan was re-
vived this year, and two performances
were presented m the Agassiz House
theatre. A notable feature of the pro-
duction was that some of the prindpal
diaracters had been studying their parts
for over two years. The Glee Club will
compete in the third annual intercol-
legiate singing contest, to be held in
Carnegie Hall, New York, on March 4.
The other entrants are the glee dubs of
PHnceton, Dartmouth, Pennsylvania,
Columbia* and Penn. State.

The feature of the spring activities of
the combined Musical Clubs will be a
two-day trip at the start of the April
recess, induding a concert at the annual
business meeting of the Harvard Club of
New Yoric, followed by a concert at the
Montdair Club, of Montdair, N.J. The
schedule as far as completed to date is:

The Dramatic Club opened its activi-
ties for the year with a public meeting in
the Union which over 100 members of
the University attended. Prof. G. P.
Baker, '87, spoke, emphasizing the im-
portance of the Club as a school for fu-
ture actors and producers. The Club's
fifteenth production was given during
December, the play used being The Pet'
terseness of Pamela^ a comedy of life in
an army post by Miss Virginia Church, a
Raddiffe graduate. The women's parts
in the following cast were taken by
Raddiffe students:

pie Dream, a fantastic one-act comedy
by D. L. Breed, 2L. The December pro-
duction of the Workshop was Plots and
Playwrights, by G. E. Massey, '15. The
acting in both was done by an amateur
stock company composed of actors and
actresses from Cambridge and Boston
whose services are given to the Work-
shop for the year.

The annual prise offered by Mr. John
Craig, of the Castie Square Theatre, for
the best play submitted by students of
Harvard and Raddiffe, was this year
awarded to Mrs. Chariotte Barrows
Chorpenning, of Winona, Minn. The
successful play is really a group of three
one-act pieces, with a prologue and an
epilogue. This play was given honorable
mention in the Craig Prise competition
last year, which was won by Cleaves
Kinkead, with his play. Common Clay,
now running in New York.

Of the three lower classes, the Jvaaon
have had the best opportunity to be
prominent for recent activity. The Class
of 1017 continued the rule that each suc-
ceeding dass sends more of its members
into the Yard dormitories for the Senior
year than any of its predecessors. In the
first allotment, 387 Juniors were as-
signed rooms in the Yard, completely
filling Thayer, Hoiworthy, Stoughton,
HoUis, and the north entry of Matthews.
The second allotment, to be hdd this
spring, will probably fill up the few re-
maining rooms in the south entry of
Matthews. The Class of 1917 hdd its
Junior Dance in the Union on the eve-
ning of Feb. 18, the entertainment being
in charge of a conmiittee headed by
W. H. Meeker, '17, of New York.

The Class of 1910 was later than its
predecessor in the new dcnrmitories in
effecting its formal organization. The
elections were postponed until after
Christmas, apparently because of the
inertia of the Student Council. The offi-
cers chosen by 1919 are: IVes., H. C.
Flower, Jr., of Kansas City, Mo., cap-
tain of the Freshman football team; vice-
pres., H. Coolidge, Jr., of Brookline;
8ec.-treas., C. F. FuHcr, of New York;
representative on Student Council, A.
Thomdike, Jr., of Boston. The ckss
activities, however, began early in the
fall. House committees were elected to



supervise the life in the individual dor-
mitories. A debating society was formed,
which has held a series of small forums
open only to members of the Class, the
two most active discussions having re-
sulted in expressions of opinion in favor
of national preparedness and national
prohibition. A q)ecial service was held
in Appleton Chapel with the view of
interesting Freshmen in the morning
prayer services. The speakers on this
occasion were Pres. Lowell, the Rev. W.

A. Lawrence, '11, the Rev. W. G.
Thayer, headmaster of St. Mark's
Sdiool, and Prof. Edward C. Moore,
chairman of the Board of Preachers.

The Sophomore Class is reviving an
institution founded by the Class of 1916
two years ago. At its dinner on March 1,
it is publishing a Blue Book, a review of
the achievements of members of the
Class since the appearance of the Fresh-
man Red Book a year ago. The chief
editors of the Blue Book are P. B. Boy-
den, of Winnetka, HI., H. Robb, of
Cleveland, O., and H. H. Silliman, of
West Rozbury.

The fall elections to Phi Beta Kappa
resulted as follows:

1917 — Junior Eight.
M. Brandwene, of Scranton, Pa.; R.
W. Chestnut, of Waynoka, Okla.; J. A.
Emery, ixf Philadelphia, Pa.; R. M. Fos-

of Arlington; C. L. Sherman, of New-
port, R.I.; W. Sils, of Lakewood, O.

[March,



Seattie, Wash.; L. P. Hammett, of Pwt-
land. Me.; J. G. Heyburn, of LouiaviUe,
Ey.; J. E. Hoskins, of Hartford, Conn.;
H. A. Larrabee, 61 Meliow; W. E.

City; L. G. Richards, of Fall River; S.
Sewall, of Minneapolis, Minn.; S. B.
Smith, of Washington, D.C.; L. Wald, of
Roxbury; J. Wooldredge, of Pasadena,
Cal.

This election was followed shortly by
the annual award of scholarships, which
showed 63 students in the first group,
and 168 in the second, a total of 231
marked for q)edal distinction in their
studies. Phi Beta Kappa has continued
the scholarship service bureau whidi it
inaugurated in 1915, and has done much
to give, without charge, advice concern-
ing studies. Under the dudrmanship of
K. B. Murdock, '16, of Chestnut Hill,
the secretary of Phi Beta Kappa, the
Bureau has maintained its own office in
Weld Hall. The advisors do no direct
tutoring, but show men how to study
and take notes in the best way, and
point out the most efficient methods of
work.

Two Forums were held in the first
semester, and in spite of the present
wealth of material for undergraduate
discussions, the attendance was poor,
well under a hundred on each occasion.
In November the negative secured the
most votes on the question that Ameri-
cans, as individuals, should openly lend
moral and economic aid to the Allies.
This contradiction of what is generally
recognized as the current stand of under-
graduates on this issue can probably be
entirely explained by the fact that the
pro-German enthusiasts canvassed sup-
port in advance. The second meeting
was an unlimited discussion of the field
of Republican presidential possibilities.



T. Roosevelt, '80, was the overwhelming
favorite, scattering support being given
to Justice Hughes, Gov. McCall of
Massachusetts, Senator Root of New
York, and Senator Borah of Idaho. The
Speakers' Club, which, in conjunction
with the Union, maintains the Forum,
has had several prominent speakers at
its weekly dinners. Among these have
been the Hon. C. J. Bonaparte, '71, for-
mer Lieut.-Gov. G. D. Gushing, '85, of
Massachusetts, IVes. £lk>t. Prof. W. A.
Neilson, of the English Department, and
Prof. R. M. Johnston, of the History
Department.

The Freshmen won the interdass de-
bating diampionship on the subject,
** Resolved, That it is for the best inter-
ests of the United States to lend eco-
nomic and financial aid to the European
belligerents." The winning team was
composed of G. H. Brownell, of New
York, M. Conley, of Boston, and J.
Davis, of Pittsburg, Pa. In the semi-
final round the Senior team won from
the Juniors, and the Freshmen defeated
the Sophomores. The victory of the
1919 team was well deserved, as they
upheld opposite sides of the question in
the two rounds.

Through the initiative of the Crtiruon,
there is growing a substantial undergrad-
uate sentiment in favor of the establish-
ment of exchange professorships between
Harvard and the universities of South
America. The few courses which the
Faculty offers on Latin-America are
popular, and, with the prolonging of the
war, whidi has deprived the best South
American scholars of their former fields
for visiting and research in Europe, and
which has opened up easily perceived
commercial opportunities, the students
themselves are directly interested in the
southern continent. In interviews for
the Crtfnjon, Prof. Oliveira Lima, who
holds the chair on Latin-American af-

fairs in the University, and Dr. Julius
Klein, of the History Department,
maintained that the project was quite
feasible, and that as there was an under-
graduate desire for such an institution,
the exchange should be efiPected at onoe.

The Memorial Society is planning
several activities for the spring. Besides
directing the annual Memorial Day exer-
cises, the Society will place a tablet on
University Hall, commemorating the
100th anniversary of its erection in 1815,
and will also bring up to date the lists of
all former occupants, which are posted
in the rooms of the Senior dormitories.

The f ollowiug officers were elected at
