In past years there has been more or less complaint concerning the delay shown by some of the instructors in their examination returns. It seems that this year we are to enjoy an unexpected celerity on the part of the examiners. The marks in several courses have already been posted, and there is every evidence that the marks in other courses will soon be given out. While we can easily appreciate the difficulty under which some instructors labor in consequence of the great size of their sections, we trust that they will feel called upon to make an extra effort to accomplish their work. During the past year or two, the returns from some of the courses have been delayed for weeks, and even months. It is to be hoped that this year will see a reform in this particular, and that where delay is unavoidable that delay will be as short as possible.
