I am going to scattered lectures today, scattered in time and in place. There is something satisfying in attending four successive lectures in the morning, perhaps it gives one a chance to shift mental gears four times. On the other hand, to a vagabonding soul, it smacks too much of law and order.

Dr. Maynadier is talking on Sterne and Smollett in English 28 at 10 o'clock this morning in the New Lecture Hall, a lecture well worth attending. Biology I, however, is a course that is so embracing in its scope that almost every lecture is attractive to one who is not by profession a biologist. Professor Parker is speaking this morning on the geographical distribution of animals.

At 11 o'clock, Professor Edgell is beginning in History 7 one of the many series of lectures which I always am tempted to attend in block, contrary as that may be to the fundamental principles of my existence. In Emerson J, today. Thursday and Saturday, he will lecture on sixteenth century Italian literature, the period that produced Tasso and Ariosto.

Dr. Elliott is lecturing at 2 o'clock in Harvard 6 on Roman politics and law. It is in Government 2b, and whoever has heard Dr. Elliott will understand my intention of visiting the lecture, even though they may think little of the subject. At the next hour, I am going to Sever 17 to hear Professor Elton lecture in his course on criticism. His subject this afternoon will be Aristotle's Poetics.
