Feb. 27 on the UniverIty serie,.
His subject will concern £aha .Hu-
sayn, blind social philosopher, and
literary critic of modern Egypt.
Concerning Taha Husayn, Profes-
sor Sprengling states that "he is
in my estimation the best mind in

at the old Moslem Azhar university,
he studied under European profes-
