Cowgill. of Reno, Nevada, in the "Nation" (New York). • It seemsj clear to .Mr Cowgill that if literature ciiji be studied it can 1x2 taught; and also that, it it is worth studying it is worth teach ing. Is it, however, worth studying in college? Kecailinpr the work he did in this subject at Harvard, un'dier Profes sor Child, Mr Cowgill is convinced that nothing in the college curriculum is bet ter worth studying.
