Excellent advice was given by Miss Henshaw on the importance of mathe matics and the necessity of passing each ear's work before attempting another, for all colleges require a thorough knowledge of algebra and plane geome try, and technical schools solid geometry also. All who fail to attain a mark of at least 7u in plane geometry should take it over. .Miss Osgood pointed out the benefits ! ot modern languages. The World war has shown not only the advantage of being able to read a foreign language but the necessity of correct pronuncia tion. A student should obtain the fol lowing from foreign language study: A correct pronunciation, a real reading ability, and an insight into the history, literature, and custom of foreign peo ple?.
