MUNN WILL TAKE OVER LAKE'S BIBLE COURSE

BIBLE LECTURES HAVE DRAWN UP TO 300 STUDENTS

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

As has been rumored ever since the resignation of Kirsopp Lake, James B. Munn '12, professor of English, will take over the second half of Lake's course on the Bible, Dean Birkhoff announced yesterday afternoon.

Munn, whose biggest course has been English 1, will cover the New Testament in the second half of this course, Comparative Literature 35b. Should he be slated to take over the course permanently, the Corporation will have to approve, and they have taken no action on the subject.

In 1914 Lake started to teach the Bible to the Undergraduates. At the beginning his class was small, numbering fifty or less students, but recently it has become more and more popular, until at one time it neared 300 students. This fall 195 men signed for it.
