The "Yale News" has proposed a plan of study to be known as the Academic Concentration Plan. Its main feature provide that certain men will be allowed to specialize in one branch of work free group requirements and class attendance. These men would be thirty in number, would have a scholastic average of eighty per cent out of a hundred, and would be chosen by the Dean.

From reading the proposed "new" plan it becomes evident that the essential difference between it and the Concentration program in force at Harvard lies in the fact that Yale would make Concentration a privilege and an honor while Harvard makes it a necessity. Although this sauce of distinction would perhaps make Yale's plan more palatable, it would necessarily limit the scope of the Concentration idea.
