Editorials. The Thirty-ninth Annual Commencement season was in every sense a
most pleasant one. From the dawn of a glorious Class-day to the falling of darkness
the close of the Commencement festivities was one unbroken chain of successful occasions. To the enterprise of the graduating class is due great praise for the successful management of Class-day. While we do not believe that the innovation of not inviting members of the Faculty and the college corporation to the festivities of the day, as inaugurated by its Class-day committee, is one to be commended or emulated, in other features their example may well be followed by succeeding classes. Although there were not so many material surprises on Commencement Day, the loyalty of the alumni, which is their best gift, was everywhere shown. Probably at no time has there been so much praise bestowed upon the college and its policy by prominent outside men as during the past week, and never before has there been such universal recognition of the rapid progress Tufts has made and of the position it now holds in the college world. It is indeed a source of pleasure to the members of a graduating class to go forth from their college amid such prosperity, yet there is also regret that they cannot remain to take part in the greater development and usefulness that is to follow. They go, however, into the active duties of the world, which offers a broader and higher field than the college can, and to them the TUFTONIAN bids a reluctant farewell, and wishes them a heartfelt Godspeed.
We are pleased to be able to give our readers a reasonable assurance of two papers during the next collegiate year. Since the last issue of the TUFTONIAN, the plans therein set forth have matured rapidly, and by vote of the directors of the Publishing Association the editorial board has been given the power to make the proposed change. As the plan now exists it provides for an eight-page weekly news-sheet and a monthly magazine, devoted largely to literary matter and affairs of interest to alumni. It is the earnest desire of the editors to keep this open to grad
