Harvard's Tutor Extraordinary To Guide Maidens In Search Of Knowledge

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Boston's top-flight debs receive man invitations, but yesterday the group opened their mail to find unusual missives. Substance of these missives was the fact that a series of courses called "Study Groups in Contemporary Life" would begin on October 25.

Everything was according to Hoyle about the letters. Even Miss Martha Chapin, Perennial list-maker, had something to do with them. In fact, replies were to be sent to her.

The courses would meet in Boston and Cambridge; that, too, looked like the real McCoy. Perhaps the only thing unusual about the whole affair was the name of the instructor, appearing in bold type at the head of the letters. Only these debbies lucky enough to be slightly steeped in some sort of Harvard tradition had heard of the man.

The man is the one and only insider on all University affairs, self-styled Harvard's leading instructor of the backward, and a chimpanzee raiser of no mean ability.

The worthy instructor is launching quite an enterprise, a future rival of Radcliffe he says. He expects to run five courses, some meeting in Boston at the Ritz and some meeting in the sanctity of his own emporium. He is keeping to have from ten to 15 maidens in each of the course. The subjects--music, art, literature, current events, and psychology.

Vagabonding is looked on with great favor by University officials, and the deb school looks like an open field for those who desire a snack of knowledge here and there.
