Note and Comment.
A SCHOOL OF POLITICAL SCIENCE.
The Harvard Crimson in a recent article refers to the proposition to establish a school of Political Science at Washington for the training of candidates for our civil service and diplomatic corps; but, despairing of seeing such an institution in that city, it advocates the addition of such a department to Harvard. The idea is an excellent one, and should receive more attention from our educators and legislators. If such a department were added to our universities, it would not only insure a better civil service, but it would make the "scholar in politics" a reality instead of a reformer's dream. Politics would become something more than systematic trickery and a struggle for the offices; and politicians would become less and statesmen more numerous." - Amherst Student.
