***The last volume of the Graduates' Magazine contained 798 pages - the largest in the 16 years of its history. The amount of material grows with each number, and tests the Magazine's resources to their full capacity. We have always printed in each number just as much as could be afforded. We ought to be enabled to add at least 100 pages to the present yearly limit, in order the more adequately to chronicle the activities of the constantly expanding University and of the 20,000 Harvard men of whom the Magazine keeps a record. The present issue prints some 80 pages of personal news, more than ever before, and yet, in spite of condensation, there remains over much material, including several special articles. The Magazine now gives by actual measure nearly a third more than it gave in its earlier years.-ED.

Miss Maude Adams generously gave, under the auspices of the Department of English, two performances of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, in Sanders Theatre, on the evenings of June 3 and 4. The play was presented without modern scenery, the setting used being essentially the same as that prepared under the supervision of Prof. Baker and Prof. H. L. Warren for the performance of Hamlet, by Mr. J. Forbes Robertson in 1904.

Prof. D. G. Lyon, Curator of the Semitic Museum, has been given leave of absence for part of the next academic year, to supervise excavations at Samaria. In 1905 Mr. Jacob H. Schiff offered to provide the money for excavating the mound which buries the ruins of Samaria, the capital of the Kingdom of Israel, and in the autumn of that year application was made at Constantinople for permission to excavate. In October, 1907, the application was granted. It was hoped that the work could be carried out by Prof. G. A. Reisner, '89, but the important archaeological investigation in which he is engaged for the Egyptian Government leaves him too little free time for the undertaking at Samaria. Dr. Gottlieb Schumacher, of Haifa, has accordingly been engaged as director of the work.

A few months later he was made the first incumbent of the chair endowed in the memory of John Homans, '58, M.D. '62. For the past year Dr. Burrell has been president of the American Medical Association.

W. C. Burton, '99, entertained the

members of the Minnesota Harvard Club at his place on Lake Minnetonka on Aug. 15, with a clambake at which there were about 35 present, including three undergraduates and five of the Class of 1912. During the early part of the afternoon two ball nines were made up from the members and after five innings of much running the game was called, the score being a tie. After the game many of the members indulged in aquatic sports and then adjourned to the festive board, where they all enjoyed the New England Clambake, many of the members never having seen one before. After dinner Farwell, '09, Adelsheim, '09, and Earle, '10, entertained us by singing the more recent college songs. At 8 p. m. all the members embarked on a launch in which they had a moonlight sail for a couple of hours, during which time the three undergraduates again entertained us with songs, being ably assisted with some of the talent of the Club. The affair was such a success that it was agreed that it would be an annual event of the Club.-E. P. Davis, '99, Sec.

The Harvard Illustrated Magazine for June published the result of a postal card canvass of the Class of 1908 on College Courses. A small percentage of replies was received, but from this some interesting facts appear. Comparative Literature 12 (Prof. Bliss Perry) heads the list of favorites; Economics 21 (Prof. Bruce Wyman) comes next; and English 2 (Prof. Kittredge) is a close third. Prof. Perry's course had 166 members, Prof. Wyman's, 152, and Prof. Kittredge's, 94. There is great diversity of opinion in regard to English A. The men who liked it say: “Of great practical use." "Puts premium on imaginative and refined work." "Interesting." "Just what a Freshman needs to

introduce him to college work.” “Most directly and immediately practical." Those who regret the course say: "Spoiled my writing. Before I came to college I had done good work on a newspaper. The miserable padding engendered in English A spoiled my style for journalism for some time.” “A young and inexperienced instructor who lacked the slightest trace of sympathy. Criticism harsh, continual, and unnecessarily offensive. With the exception of English A, every course I have taken at Harvard has been both pleasant and of distinct value as a factor in my education." "Kills all originality, besides being an unholy bore." "The course was all right, but my instructor was an overworked, irritable man." "The section meetings presided over by assistants are absolutely valueless." "Because of its too youthful and therefore harsh instructors." History A, Economics 1 and 5, and Government 1 are among the popular courses. Among the reasons for regretting various courses these may be cited. "No desire for cinch courses.' "A 1.30 and a 9 o'clock, with a petty assistant, who gave an E on an hour examination as the result of questions marked B, E, C, respectively." "These courses stupefied my intellect, deadened my imagination, and imparted to me no knowledge, absolutely no knowledge whatever." "Owing to a bad mark in the course, yet I did a lot of work," "soporific lectures," "I learned a whole lot of facts and dates, most of which I have forgotten," "reprehensible person who has it in charge," "my utter unfitness for scientific work," "accursed nature of the German language, and the instructor's unfailing Teutonic insolence," "because I took them as snap courses, not really having time to give them the necessary attention," "physical discomfort of Boylston Hall," "in a little while you for
