The lecture to be given by Doctor Coolidge this evening has at this time an especial interest, in that it treats of one of the foremost political topics of the day. Much has been said and written on the Cretan situation, but the average observer feels the need of some more accurate information on the subject. Doctor Coolidge is particularly well fitted to expound this difficult matter. For some years he has made affairs in the East a subject of the most careful study and investigation, and probably it is safe to say that few men today are so well able to deal with the complicated problem. Dr. Coolidge is, moreover, an interesting speaker, and will be sure of a large and interested audience.
