CALLS RESEARCH USELESS WITHOUT IMAGINATION

Professor Hart Discusses Methods of Acquiring Knowledge as Reception for Men of Graduates Schools

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"There is no research that accomplishes anything without imagination." was the closing point of Professor A. B. Hart last night in the Philips Brooks House in his discussion on the subject of "Research Thyself" before about 300 men at the Graduate Schools Reception. Professor Hart in developing the importance of research in modern thinking and study, presented the lack of it in ancient Greek, circles of learning, and then traced its gradual growth to modern times as a method of securing knowledge.

Dean Donham of the Graduate School of Business Administration and Dean Hughes of the Engineering School, each gave a short address, preceding Professor Hart, who was the Principal speaker of the evening.

After the speeches the gathering adjourned to the first floor for refreshments.
