EDITORS HARVARD HERALD: One more suggestion in regard to Memorial, if the subject is not exhausted: Many have been the complaints about the unpleasant surroundings at the late breakfast table. Every time a man is unfortunate enough to sleep past nine o'clock, he is obliged to breakfast amidst sweepings and dustings and scrubbings, whose general character is not appetizing, to say the least. He is surrounded by a bulwark of chairs piled upon the surrounding tables, and is serenaded by the clatter of plates and hardware. Now all this might be obviated with very little difficulty. Why not have the late breakfast table in the little side-room corresponding to the auditor's room? To be sure, this room is at present occupied, but there is no necessity of its being used regularly, as there are so many vacant tables in the hall proper. This arrangement would almost completely do away with the many objections to the late table as it is now conducted. There would be no dust, no noise, and no chairs piled on the table-cloth to be seen. Of course, we would miss the singing, which, to me at least, is an agreeable feature; but still, the advantages to be gained would far outweigh this one thing which, indeed, is not pleasant to every one. This would certainly be a much fairer arrangement than the present one, the propriety of which is questionable.
