THE OPPORTUNITIES OF SCIENCE.
Ever since the demand for men of practical scientific attainments reached such enormous proportions, the need of a new training school for such men at Harvard has been felt with ever-increasing force, and has led to the birth of the Graduate School of Applied Science. Following the example set by the Faculties of Law and Medicine, the founders of the new institution aimed to place it in the front rank. An opportunity was provided when the McKay bequest became available last January, and the first step towards the desired expansion was made with the appointment of Professors Swain and Clifford from the Institute of Technology. Professor Swain, whose reputation as an engineer is national, will deliver in the Union this evening the fourth in the series of lectures on the professions. He is worth hearing.
