The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 79
For the benefit of students in the economic class, the Association imported a number of copies of Gide's "Political Economy," and sold the majority to students. This has enabled them to carry on their home studies with some degree of success. Most of the books prescribed for the Literature Class were obtainable locally, so that in this respect the difficulties of the previous year have largely been overcome. A supply of books to serve as a reference library in Economics has been on order for more than twelve months; but owing to misadventure these are not yet to hand. The Association has also gratefully to record a donation of £10 from Mr. Oliver Duff. This sum has been set aside to purchase books of reference for the use of students attending the Literature Class, so that at some time in the session of 1917, the students of both classes should have recourse to a small but useful library.
