University Extension.
Tine annual meeting of the Amer-
ican Society for the extension of
University Teaching was held Tues-
day evening, in Philadelphia, and
was an occasion of interest to all
friends of. higher education and the
movement for imparting its benefits
to the people. The University Ex-
tension project is comparatively new,
but the progress it has already made
shows how strong a hold it has taken
upon the popular mind. The peo-
ple were ripe for it. The American
Society is in receipt of inquiries
regarding the matter, even -from so
distant a part of the world as India;
and it is regarded as the chief bureau
of information on the subject for
the United States and Canada. The
demands for lecturers are constant
and great. To meet them in some
of the smaller towns circuits have
been arranged whereby a lecturer
may visit six different places on the
evenings of one week, thus conserv-
ing energy and reducing traveling
expense. A token of progress is
shown in the fact that some towns
which enjoyed a single course of
lectures last winter have now ar-
ranged for four courses. Altogether,
the University Extension movement
is one of the most promising signs
in this country and in England.
Sad Suicide of a Former U. of M.
A very sad and startling suicide
occurred at the U. of P. the n1th
inst. John T. Scott, a medical stu-
dent, was found dead in his room
with his throat cut. Last spring
Mr. Scott was hit on the head by a
batted ball which felled him to the
ground, unconscious. It is suppos-
ed that this accident caused a fit of
temporary insanity, in- whichl ie
took his own life, though his friends
have noticed nothing strange in his
actions since. During '88 and '89,
.Mlr. Scott was in the literary depart-
ment of the University of Michigan.
In the fall he played right end on
the 'Varsity eleven, and in spring
short-stop on the nine. While here,
Mr. Scot was a general. favorite.
Being a member of the Psi U. fra-
ternity, adstading high in athletic

at his sad and unexpected death.
