A mild introduction of the ludicrous on proper occasions

Trustee report: The feature of the work which struck your committee very forcibly was the genial, kindly sympathy between professors and students. The professors generally did not hesitate to enliven the recitations by a mild introduction of the ludicrous on proper occasions. The genial, sympathetic, and cheerful spirit manifested by professors and students seemed to your Committee a decided improvement on old times.
