Economics retains its hold as the most popular field of concentration, it was revealed yesterday by the Committee on the Choice of Electives in releasing figures regarding 850 concentrators from this year's Freshman class. Though the number of men majoring in this field has decreased, it holds a comfortable lead with 137 enrolled, followed by English, 123; Romance languages, 78; History, 74; Bio-Chemical Sciences, 65; History and Literature, 47; and Mathematics, 44.
Percentage distribution among the 850 members of the Class of 1934, larger by 65 than the Class of 1933, remained for the most part the same. The drop in Economics from 193 to 137 is largely accounted for by the fact that the new field of Sociology has attracted 23 men. The greater increase occurs in the number of concentrators in English, 123 as against 92 for 1930-31.
History's Popularity Increases
Economics, English, and Romance Languages retain their hold on the first three places, but History has displaced Bio-Chemical Sciences in fourth position.
Marked increases are seen in the fields of Classics, Philosophy, and Physics. Other departments which will have more men working under them than in 1930-31 are those of Anthropology, Chemistry, Astronomy, Government, History, and History and Literature.
The number concentrating in each field is as follows:
Ticknor then hit an easy grounder to White who tried to tag MacHale as he was running home, but missed him and Harvard's sixth run was scored. The Crimson's run-getting ended in the eighth when Rex was hit by a pitched ball and came in on a sacrifice by Mays and a double by Wood.
There will be a game with Villanova tomorrow at 4 o'clock and on Saturday the team will face Brown.
