Abstract

A NEW L.A. exam syllabus is now in force. Some faults of the old headscrew remain. Notably that bag o' bones which has rattled dryly down the wind ever since our exams began Eng. Lit. from Beowulf to the Sitwells in one threehour paper with ne'er a scrape of marrow. Chartered liberians with no more Literature than a Hottentotto celebrate our centenary Another fault is the division into unequal periods of Literature for the Final. But perhaps Chaucer House would lack character without a grinning hoodoo to bedevil Literature. On the whole the syllabus has more strength and accommodation. Signs are that sense does penetrate for examples, examining classification and cataloguing together, the study of named reference books, and encouragement to more varied librarianship.
