NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Complaints in regard to the English department have been varied enough in the past, and have been brought forward on all possible topics, but the article which we reprint on the first page to-day is a tribute to the efficiency of this department instead of being one of the said periodical complaints. Those who have criticised may learn something from the statements of this writer: He tells how, when Professor Hill first came to Cambridge, the English department was unworthy of its name of department, and if one sees mistakes and insufficiencies now, one ought to judge them not in the light of an ideal but in the light of the past, and then be thankful for present blessings, instead of bewailing those which are not given. We are inclined to believe that the English department, especially owing to the changes in the new pamphlet, is now one of the most efficient in the college, and that its increasing popularity may be presumed to be a good test of this efficiency.

We wish that our space would enable us to print the whole of the article, from which, however, we can only take excerpts.
