During the past ;veek, his lectures on real property law in Florida have been continued and are scheduled to run for sonec time. Professor Wurts' high standing as 'a legal author and educator is sufficient guarantee that his lectures carry weight and meet with great appreciation from the bar, faculty and students Conmposing his audience at the University. possible for .\ajor Walker to the cadets all the time, he has n other duties to perform, therefo, devolves upon the cadet officer ti this work and it is high time to dii to business before we arc duced so lowv we can't be seen.
