President Eliot's Annual Report.
President Eliot of Harvard has
just made a very interesting report
as to affairs at Harvard and reviews
the record of last year and makes
many suggestions for changes.
He refers to the question of short-
ening the college course to three
years. He supports the plan by
offering figures showing that a large
number of men now complete all, or
nearly all, of the requirements in
three years necessary to receive a
bachelor's degree from the college.
In reviewing the work of the differ-
ent departments during the past year
mention is made of the revision and
raising the standard required for ad-
mission to the college and the Law-
rence Scientific Schosl. Although
it was not the intention of the faculty
to increase the amount of work
necessary, yet a very appreciable
gain in scholarship is observed in
Free Trade Essaq Competition
Open to Laws.
Word has been received from the
Free Trade League that any student
in the University not enrolled in the
"Graduate School," may compete for
the prize offered for the best essay on,
"Whom Does Protection Protect."
This decision will increase the inter-
est in the contest inasmuch as it
throws the competition open to mem-
bers of the Law Department.
Harry Lovell, '99, has completed
his college course and left Friday for
his home in Flint where he will re-
main for several days. He has

mediately. He intends to remove
there with his wife and family and
will make his home in Brooklyn.
