FORENSICS.Seniors are reminded that they cannot use in the forensic work of the the present year, any of the four topics which they offered for their junior forensic examination.
The list of forensic topics will be found in the Library in alcove 5.
Any students unsupplied with the announcements concerning forensics for 1885-86, can obtain copies of the pamphlet at U. 5. Especial attention is called to the fact that the present pamphlet contains a list of such among last year's topics as will not be accepted for use during the coming year.
For purposes of consultation with seniors about their forensic work Prof. Royce will be in the Library, in closed alcove 25, at the following hours: Tuesday and Friday, from 2.30 to 4.
Mr. Gates will be at the same place for consultation with juniors on Monday and Thursday from 1.30 to 2.30.
The first senior forensic will be due Nov. 17, not Nov. 10, as the pamphlet states; the first junior forensic will be due Dec. 1.
JUNIOR AND SOPHOMORE THEMES.Mr. Clymer will meet the junior and sophomore classes on Thursday, Nov. 12, at 2 p. m. in Sever 11.
Junior theme II will be due on Tuesday, Nov. 24. Subject: A description.
Sophomore theme III will be due on Thursday, Nov. 12. Subject: A critical estimate of some good author, or a review of some important work of a good author. The aim should be to produce, as far as the limits allow, a finished piece of critical work. This theme will be distributed for criticism to the class on Friday, Nov. 13. from 2 to 4 p. m. in Sever 5. It is important that every one should come to get a theme to criticise. On Thursday, Nov. 19, each student will deposit in the theme-box in Sever 3 the theme that he has criticised, together with his criticism of it.
Writers of sophomore themes will in future designate their themes not by their names, but by the numbers which they find written on the first theme.
Special attention is called to the fact that, by the regulations, no overdue theme will be accepted, unless the writer satisfies the Dean that his failure to present it at the appointed time was due to serious illness or other unavoidable hindrance.
CHAMBER CONCERTS.Three concerts will be given by the Listemann Quartet at Sever Hall on Thursday evenings, Nov. 12, Dec. 17, and Jan. 21. The programme will be selected from the finest string quartets of Beethoven, Haydn, Schubert, Raff, etc.
