they return in the fall, which the re-
gents decided upon at their meeting
yesterday morning. The board has
simply added another case to the proof
of the general proposition "where
there's a will there's a way," which is
to say, in other words, that if the leg-
latur- can't grant the money which
the University needs the money must
be obtained in some other way, and
this brings us to the pleasant surprise
nioted above. The regents have deid-
ed that inasmuch as all Michigan stu-
dents are interested in thie wel being
of the University and have few oppor-
tunities to show it, that it be allowed
them to pay five dollars more for thlr
annual fee than has heretofore been
customary. The only comment we
have is that the method seems to us a
good one for raising $10,000, as there
appears to be no reason why so small
an in(-r.qcP ca1ioulhP-senrouly felt hy
view it is certatinly an undeniable ad-
vantage to designate such diffei'ences
in a way that the public can under-
stand. S o much being granted, it ap-
pears at once that the abolition of the
B. L. degree is a step in this deplor-
able direction, inasmuch as it is in
line with the tendency toward fewer
diffesentiating marks evident to the
public. If the distinguishing fea.tuvs
of the different courses now offered in
the University be strictly adhered to
and degrees be conferred in accord-
ance with this policy, no mutual dis-
advantages can possibly .arise, but in
their stead, important benvefits.
The Summer School.
The outlook for the coming session
of the summer school is very bright
and .the prospects are that .the attend-
ance will be' double that of last year.

ceived concerning the law courses and
