Among the changes and additions announced in the Elective Pamphlet for '98-'99, several are especially welcome.
Perhaps what will arouse most interest, is the announcement that English 8 1, originally intended for alternate years, will be offered again next year as a half course running throughout the term. The recent popularity of the course warrants future appreciation, and we believe that the matter it covers will be more thoroughly digested when there are greater intervals between lectures, and consequently more time allowed for literary assimilation.
Professor Beale will be welcomed back to the Department of History and Government, and his course in International Law as illustrative of the principles of instruction in the Law School, aside from the subject is calculated to draw those intending to take up law as a profession.
Truly distinctive additions, are the two courses in the Economics Department offered by Dr. Cunningham of Trinity College, Cambridge, on "Western Civilization in its Economic Aspects," and the "Industrial Revolution in England." They will cause many Seniors to wish more than ever that they were members of the Junior class, and no doubt will prove an additional temptation to many for a year in the Graduate School.
