THE STUDENT VAGABOND

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Humanism has much of the vagabond spirit. It recognizes the lutility of boundaries, national or academic, and the barren wastes of ordered patterns. Often it gathers as little moss as any rolling stone. Erasmus, on the other hand, humanist of humanists, picked up much moss in his travels to Oxford and France. Those more regular and ordered souls who have sat through a year of History 7 point to the lecture on Erasmus as one of the many high points of the course. Professor Whitney will deliver it at 11 o'clock, this morning in Emerson J.

Erasmus would stand out in relief on any day, not only on a Saturday. But I have skipped two hours and my breakfast--this time of year is bad for breakfasts, what with grapefruit going quickly and strawberries not yet here. There is still applesauce--and Dryden's plays at 9 o'clock in Sever 30 when Professor Tatlock lectures to English 39. And there is Moussorgsky at noon in Music 4d, when Professor Hill will probably play some of his Slavic although not slavish works in the Music Building.

When Professor Lake speaks, it is the signal for vagabonds to hold a national convention. And he is speaking although it is at the Phillips Brooks House, in the religion series tomorrow, at 4 o'clock.
