365.-The Englishl Bible.-This is a continuation of the course
above. Some time will be devoted to the odes, songs, elegies,
monodies, lyrics, epics, etc. Some attention will be given to the use
that the literary men have made of the Bible in the form of quotations.
Text: Moulton, The Literary Study of the Bible.
In each of these last two courses a great deal of parallel reading
will be required. Jane T. Stoddart, The Old Testament in Life and
Literature, The New Testament in Life and Literature, and others.
375.-The Modern Drama. This course is a close study of about
twenty of the best modern dramas of American, English, Irish, French,

112.-Preparatory Greek Course. No credit is given for this
couse taken alone. Two hours a week given to this course.will enable
the student to get a grasp of the elements of the language so that
he may use lexicons and grammars to some advantage should he
have no more Greek in school; but this course is given in an effort
to make the First Year Greek (Greek 115, 125, and 135) easier
and to prevent so many failures there. It is thought that this preliminary
study will amply repay the student in that it will give
him a good start that will enable him to be master of the later work
in Greek, rather than become lost in the mass of it.
122.-Preparatory Greek Course continued. Winter.
132.-Preparatory Greek Course finished. Spring.
The above courses are open to all who have not had Greek. The
work is taken slowly and systematically. Only the leading features
of the language are given. Vocabulary is made prominent. Those
finishing can read easy portions of John and Xenophon and can write
short, simple sentences. This course will help much in etymology of
115.-This is a college course for beginners. We make the work
as thorough as possible and the work will be confined to the rudiments
of the language.
Text: White, First Greek Book.

of work will be done.
This is a continuation of courses 115 and 125. Xenophon's Anabasis
