THE STUDENT VAGABOND

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

I have always felt a strong curiosity about that part of English literature called the "Restoration Drama". Perhaps this is a relic of my youthful interest in everything that was not fully explained to me. Or do I only imagine that most of the lectures I have listened to have treated this phase of English drama in unsatisfactorily general terms?

Be that as it may, my curiosity remains and will undoubtedly lead me to Sever 29 to hear Professor Tatlock speak on Lee's tragedies in English 39. This will cause me to rise at an early hour, but even vagabonds are not as somnolent as they often profess to be.

At 10 o'clock I shall have to waive all other attractions to attend Professor Lowes' lecture on Keats in Sever 11-For me to say anything in praise of Keats were indeed superfluous, and to try to explain my predilection for him impossible

And at this point I must pause in my labors. Under any other circumstances Mr. Whitney's lecture on Luther and Zwingli in History 7 would find me in Emerson J at 11 o'clock. But oven Lather and the stirring period of the Reformation cannot overcome that feeling of restlessness which the thought of 11 o'clock brings up in me.

At 12 I return to my intellectual wanderings to hear Professor Hill lecture on Rimsky-Korsakov in Music 4d. Aside from the fact that Rimsky-Korsakov was the teacher of Stravinski, which in itself would sufficiently arouse my interest to make me walk all the way to the Paine Music Hall, I know that Professor Hill will give certain illustrated selections from Rimsky-Korsakov on the piano himself.
