CONANT WELCOMES 100 FIRST YEAR GRADUATES

MURDOCK HOPES FOR CENTER TO BE BASED ON HOUSE PLAN

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

In addressing a welcome to the first year men in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, President Conant declared last night. "It might be maintained that the Graduate School is the most important aspect of Harvard University."

William Y. Elliott, Professor of Government, Walter B. Briggs, assistant librarian of Widener, and Kenneth B. Murdock, '16, Dean of the Graduate School, who presided, also spoke to the assembly of more than a hundred.

Dean Murdock expressed the hope that there would be in the future a more adequate center for the graduate students modeled after the House system, but somewhat simpler in nature. President Conant seconded him in this hope, saying, "We hope to have better material means for the furthering of acquaintanceship of the students in the Graduate School."

He went on to say, quoting a seventeenth century writer, that a liberal education, which the Graduate School attempts to foster, is one in which every man is enabled to follow his own natural bent in the way of research.
