Chicago University, however, will hardly be unique in affording instruction for the whole twelve-month. For some years Harvard has carried out the same plan, giving instruction during the long summer recess through the means of the Summer School. Here at Cambridge the Summer School has accomplished a great good and has met with proportionate success. Its steady growth for the future seems assured. A radical difference between Harvard's and the Chicago University's methods of summer instruction lies in the fact that the new university will allow all such instruction to count for a degree exactly as at any other time of the year; while Harvard makes no such allowance. From the present outlook, however, it seems only a question of time before Harvard changes the regulations so as to allow summer instruction to count for a degree. There certainly seems every reason in the world why the present rule should no longer endure.
