CLASSICS ILD GROUND
AT CAMBIRIDGE UIJIESITY
LATIN-GREEK COMBINATION NOT
NEEDED FOR ALL
DEGREES
Cambridge, England, Jan. 23.-Re-
sponding to te stimulus imparted by
the war, Cambridge university is con-
templating changes which may affect
the whole scheme of modern training
in English-speaking universities and
provide a broader basis for liberal
education.
The first of these is designed to
bring the examination which candi-
dates must pass either before or after
entering Cambridge more into line
with the requirements- of the modern
world. To accomplish this it has been
proposed to abolish the compulsion
of candidates to study two classical
languages. This applies only to the
"ordinary" courses, as distinguished
from the "honor".courses which latter
are for the abler students.
Now Demand Both Classics
While there is no entrance examin-
ation at Cambridge, all candidates are
required to pass the so-called "pre-
vious examinations" in which, at pres-
ent, Greek and Latin are both com-
pulsory.
It now has been proposed that, in-
stead of compelling the candidates to
take two classical languages, two for-
eign languages should be required in
the "previous examinations" of which
Latin shall be one; and that the candi-
date shall have the option of offering
ae his second foreign language either
Greek, or French, or German. It is
felt that the existence of classical en-
trance scholarships will effectually
promote the study of Greek at the uni-
versity by many of the abler men.
Lessens Requftements For Degrees
It is not proposed to make the "pre-
vious examinations" easier but to op-
en the avenue to a degree to those who
have been educated at univlersities
where two classical languages are not
compulsory.
When once the "previous examina-
tion" is passed the "ordinary" student
'usually proceeds to take one or more
special examinations. It is suggested
to increase the number of these and
generally to widen the curriculum.
New subjects may be introduced and
re-grouping will probably follow.
Closer Associations
A committee has recently been ap-
pointed "to consider the means of pro-
moting collaboration with the univer-
sities of the Empire and the foreigpn
universities." This committee with
its wide influence will doubtless deal
with such questions as the interchange
of professors, and what facilities can
be afforded to young graduates from
non-British universities for proceed-
ing to post graduate courses and de-
grees.
Welcome To Soldier Students
Cambridge has no Rhodes Scholars,
but she has numerous students from
the United States, and a welcome is
now being extended to the soldier-stu-
dents already in Europe wh6' cannot
spend their short leaves in America.
There are already over 3,00 American
university men, students and gradu-
ates, engaged in active war work in
France, and it is expected that in a
short timethere may bem more than
10,000. Universty authorities hope
that next year groups of these stu-
dents will visit Cambridge and spend
a few days in its ancient colleges. It
is already known that all the coleges

are willing most cordially to co-oper-
ate in this movement and as far as 'is
possible every hospitality will be ex-
tended to the guests from across -the
seas.'

FRESHMEN ELECT COURSE
FOR SENIORS BY MISTAKE
Several freshmen have elected Geol-
ogy 1E for the second semester, who
should have elected Zoology 1. This
Arror is due to' a mistake in the an-
nouncement of the literary college
with regard to the freshmen courses
in Forestry. Geology 1 is there given
as a required course for the 'freshman
year.
Since Geology 1 is not offered in the
second semester, some freshmen have
interpreted the announcement to mean
Geology 1E, which is a Forestry
course, but open only to upperclass-
men. The bulletin of the Forestry
department schedules the course cor-
rectly, and in that'bulletin Zoology- 1
is designated for the second semester
of the freshman year. Students who
have elected Geology 1E by mistake
should take the first opportunity to
rectify the mistake, and should go to
the classes in Zoology 1 at the begin-
ning of the semester.
