Players March 24, 25 and 26 in the

characterized by Prof. Hereward T..
Price, instructor of Shakespeare in
the English department, as "an ex-

as an evening's entertainment, with-
out a deeper significance."
"The plot of the comedy," Profes-

This* book aims to make use of the graphical method as a tool. It is planned for those
who have had an elementary course in calculus and wish to make use of the graphical method in

those who deal with experimental -data.
It is thought that the use of the derived curves in graduating data has much in its.
