The changing of the time of singing the class song at the tree is certainly a move for the better. This subject has been agitated a great deal during the past few years, but up to the present year nothing has come of it. Heretofore, the song has been sung after the cheering when every one was so hoarse that the attempt to sing generally ended in a ludicrous combination of groans and yells. This year, however, the song is to be sung before the cheering, when every one's voice is comparatively fresh. The effect ought to be much more pleasing than it has been in former years. There is no reason why a class of over one hundred and eighty men should not render as simple a song as the class song with excellent effect. We hope, therefore, to see a great improvement over the singing of former classes.
