Commentor on Outside Reading Meant No Attack on Specific Courses

In last Monday's issue of the CRIMSON appeared a statement by an instructor in the English Department concerning outside reading. The author of the statement has pointed out that the report was not a correct interpretation of the sentiments originally expressed. What attempted to be some timely class advice, illustrated by the case of one man who had worked not wisely, but too well, was unfortunately misconstrued into a critical attack upon specific methods and courses. No such specific criticism was intended, the criticism being directed at the manner of doing large assignments of outside reading--with a hint as to "judicious skipping".
