29 COURSES ARE LISTEIJ
Courses in the subject of physics,
ranging from high school study for
those who arp2 preparing to enter ithe
University to courses given by some
of the world's most famous' physicists
will be -given during the 1928 Sum-
mner Session of the University, accord-
ing to a recent announcement.. Two
non-residents professors, both emi-
nent in their respective fields, will
give)s courses and many of the regular
staff will instruct in the 29 differ-
ent courses to be offered.
Prof. H. A. Dramners of Rijks uni-
versity in U trech, Holland, world-'
famous physicist, will give twvo couirs-{
es; one will be a survey of the recent
work in Quantum Theory which will
include many phases of the work, and
another will be a. course in wavej
mechanics. -Professor Kramers has'
made an intensive study and is at
the top of the field in this especial
phease of physicists, according to of-I

Harvard Introduces'
As Part Ofed,
Increased independence and freed-
om for the undergraduate is the chief
advantage of the "Reading Period,"
the latest educational innovation,. re-.
cently established at Harvard uni-
versity. During a period of from two
to three weeks before the mid-year
examinations, lectures and classes
were completely discontinued, in or-
der that the student might be given
"more freedom and a larger measure
of individual responsibility. . . thus
enlarging his opportunity to work by
hinself, free from routine supervis-
ion." Tasks were assigned at the be-
ginning of the period, and examina-
tions were given at its close to test
results.
Although, by the original vote of
the faculty, adoption of the plan was
left entirely to the discretion of each
department, it was applied to some ex-
tent in every department except En-
gineering sciences, Military science,
naval science and mineralagy.
E~xaminations were purposely made
more '.thorough and comprehensive,
and tlhe slight increase in grades
therefore augurs well for the prac-
ticability of the plan. The grades of
students affected by the Reading Per-
iod: show an increase of about 2 per
cent in honor grades and 1 per cents
in satisfactory grades, while certain
courses showed as much as 10.7 per
cent increase.
The Readling Period took place im-
