McLean Track Captain.
At a meeting of the 'Varsity track
team yesterday J. F. McLean was elect-
ed captain for next year. He has been
in college two years, coming from Me-
nominee, Mich., and has been a member
of the team both years. Last year he
confined his work to the hurdles, but
this year took part not only in those
events but also the high and broad
jumps, and succeeded in breaking the
'Varsity records made at Regents
Field in all but the high jump. His
superior all-round work saved the day
for Michigan in the dual meet with
Chicago last Saturday.
Growth of the University.
The University of Michigan began in
181 with nine studens ad one deprt-
ment, that of literature, science and Ie
arts. It closes the fifty-seventh year
of its history at the coming coo-
mencement with 3,114 students and sev-
en separate facuities. In its first de-
cade the increase was slow, from 9 to
154. The medical department was add-
ed at the beginning, the law depart-
ment at the end, of the second decade,
when the total attained 533. At the
end of the third decade women were
admitted, and the total, including the
new pharmacy department, was 1,102.
Thus the third decade more than
doubled the attendance of the second.
From 1870 to 1875 there was but 25 in-
crease, due * probably ti the business
depression succeeding for severa years
the panic of 1871. From 1870 to 1898,
however, the attendance has almost
trebled. The falling off in the attend-1
ance of the literary department ins189-6:
from 1,523 to 1,204 is due to the separ-
ate organization of the engineering de-
partment, whose students had hitherto
been incorporated with the literary de-
partment, Just before and during the
war the literary department fell off in
numbers from 287 to.218, rapidly regain-
ing the last year of the war and quick-
ly passing beyond its previous regiotra--
tion. Since the years of business de-
pression in 1870-75, its attendance has
steadily increased, barring the subtrac
tion of the engineers already alluded.
Dr. H. B. Baker, secretary of the
state board of health, has been appoint-
ed by the regents to lecture before the
medical students in the coming college
year upon the administration of the
state laws for public health. The re
gents have also arranged for lectures
to be delivered before the medical and
sociological students of the University
by superintendents of the various pub-
lic schools in the state. Among these
are the superintendents of the school
for the blind, for the deaf and dumb,
and for the feeble minded. The super-
intendents of the state hospitals for
the insane will also give lectures at
