Dickinsonian Newspaper

Dickinsonian, October 9, 1897

A report of the whereabouts and activities of the class of 1897 is published.  Traditional "Fair Week" half-holday is canceled, and Friday after Thanksgiving is proposed as a substitute.  After a year's break from the usual custom, the requirement of upper classmen to answer to church roll is revived, with disapproval from the editors.  United States President William McKinley, Professor Cramer, and Dr. Stauffer are elected to honorary membership in the Belles Lettres Society.  The editors call for improved exits from the athletic field.
