Concentration Rule for Choice of Electives.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

(We invite all men in the University to submit communications on subjects of timely interest.)

To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

Under the new rules for the choice of electives, concentration must be made in six closely related courses: Four of the six must be in one department; the other two need not be in that department, if they are closely related to those four courses; that is, if they are approved courses in the same field of distinction.

Concentration in a field of distinction does not oblige a student to try for any kind of distinction. Additional work and high marks would be necessary for that; and often there are special examinations. To get distinction by doing this additional work is good, but a student may concentrate without going so far. CHARLES P. PARKER.
