courses, and the remarkable earnestness of the students resulted in obviously unusual profits to them. Not the least valuable of the activities of the INSTITUTE was the gathering of small informal groups to discuss linguistic problems quite apart from the times and places of the scheduled courses; and in these, from time to time, virtually every one participated.
During the session there were some other official activities in addition to those which were listed as courses. On the evening of July 10, the Director and Mrs. Sturtevant entertained the members of the INSTITUTE at an informal reception, at the Church-Wall Tea Room, a function which aided greatly in making the members known to one another. Thereafter, every Tuesday and Friday evening from July 13 to August 14, a public lecture on a linguistic topic was given in Harkness Hall by a member of the Faculty, and it was noticeable that several of these were attended by more persons than the total membership of the Institute. Also, on the afternoon of August 15, Mr. and Mrs. R. G. Kent gave a tea in the parlor of Harkness Hall, to meet Mademoiselle Marguerite Dumont of Paris, special representative of the Association Guillaume Budé of Paris, an organization of French scholars to promote the influence of the Greek and Latin cultures in France and in other countries, but devoted also to the promotion of literary culture in general. Mademoiselle Dumont gave an interesting account of the work of the Association, and exhibited samples of its publications.
On the evening of August 9, an open meeting was held for members of the INSTITUTE and others who were interested, to consider the future of the INSTITUTE. By an unanimous vote it was recommended to the Linguistic Society of America that a second session of the INSTITUTE be held in 1929, and that for at least one more year the INSTITUTE be conducted in New Haven. Votes of appreciation were passed, thanking the authorities of Yale University for the cooperation which had made it possible to hold the INSTITUTE; to the Yale Library for its assistance; to Mrs. Sturtevant and to Miss Sturtevant for their constant help with the arrangements, clerical and otherwise; and, on behalf of the Faculty, to the Graduates Club and the Lawn Club for their courtesies. A vote of sympathy was passed for Mr. Russell, who had suffered an accident and had been unable to meet his classes during the fifth week and part of the sixth. In addition to this, a number of possible modifications in the working of the INSTITUTE were suggested. Classwork ended on August 17, when examinations were given in those courses in which instructors preferred that method of determining
credits, rather than class reports or research papers. Each classapart from the short courses and those of Mr. Russell-had therefore met thirty times, five times a week for six weeks, which coordinates the work with that of most American universities.
The second session of the LINGUISTIC INSTITUTE lies in the hands of the Executive Committee of the Linguistic Society of America, according to the vote passed at Cincinnati, and recorded above. At this writing the Committee has approved the unanimous recommendation of the meeting of August 9, and has authorized the Administrative Committee of the INSTITUTE to proceed with plans for 1929. Inquiries with regard to the 1929 session should be addressed to Professor E. H. Sturtevant, Box 1849 Yale Station, New Haven, Connecticut.
