The announcement is made in another column of a series of lectures which will prove exceedingly attractive to the college. It is to the Deulscher Verein that we are indebted for this opportunity to meet several eminent scholars and hear their opinions on subjects of great interest in connection with Germany. The first of these on "The Present Condition of Germany" will be especially opportune, as it will give a chance to compare the politics of that country with those of France, which have just been vividly described by Professor Cohn. The movement among the societies of the same type as the Verein to invite prominent men to speak at Harvard has secured some of the most interesting lectures of this term. The societies show in this action an encouraging sign of life and energy and an effort to bestow a genuine benefit upon the whole college outside of the social advantages they offer to their own members.
