As every year the elective pamphlet comes out the college looks with interest to discover the unfailing signs of growth and progress in the university. This year is no exception, and the choice of study which Harvard offers for 1892-93 has in it unmistakable signs of advance. After a college has worked out such a complicated and liberal system of electives as Harvard has been building up, it is natural to expect that after those years of construction the university would settle down, content to run along for some time to come on the lines which it has with such pains laid down. This, however, does not satisfy the progressive spirit of Harvard. Every year new courses are offered, and new fields are opened for the acquisitions of a better and more enlightened education.
