A PLEA TO OUR INSTRUCTORS.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Having duly reflected on undergraduate irresponsibility, and having cudgeled the editorial brain for a brand new suggestion, the CRIMSON steps deliberately into the inevitable subject of final examinations. We do not warn men that exams are only a week off, even if they are, and we do not suggest that it is time to begin work on them. Any man who needs such admonitions is referred to bound volumes of the CRIMSON which may be seen upon application at the office. But we have one plea to make of instructors, a plea which we feel we may safely say comes from the majority of undergraduates: we plead for more final reviews. In many courses there is a certain lack of correlation of the lectures with one another and with the reading, which means a complete lack of unity in the course in the student's mind. The reviews do not make it possible for the loafers to get through, because no short review could do that. They simply clear up many hazy points and give the men a view of their courses as a whole which they are frequently unable to get unassisted. As for omitting reviews for fear of such things as happened in Governmentment I at mid-years, we do not believe that any Harvard man would dare repeat such an act of misrepresentation in the public journals. There is everything to be said in favor of reviews, while what is said against them seems to be not exactly logical.
