MAKING RAPID PROGRESS-
Various Changes in the Courses and
Several New Ones
The rapid increase in the num-
ber of students in the last few
years has given rise and made
possible a widening and deepen-
ing in the scope of college work.
In the Literary Department
changes have been made in nearly
every branch of the work.
To the list of languages, Hebrew
and Assyrian have been added.
Many of the new courses promise
to be excellent. In Philosophy
one-hour courses in Caird's Critical
Philosophy of Kant and in "Es-
tietics, also two-hour courses in
Ethical Problems and a Seminary
in the History and Philosophy of
Religion. In History two courses
are offered in the History and In-
stitutions of Greece and Rome,
also a course in FrenchRevolution,
using Taime's Ancient Regime, and
another course in Advanced Con-i
stitutio history of England.
In Latin several changes have
been made and one addition made
in the number of courses. Be-
sides several changes in Math-
ematicsnew courses are offered in
Higher Plane Curves, Advanced
Mechanies and Modern Geometry.
In Music, Chemistry and Astron-
omy several new courses are

S. C. A. It was estimated that
there were at least six hundred
persons present, and many went
away who were unable to stand

a new college year. His reinarks
were full of interest to all, and his
greeting to the incoming class was
delivered in his usually pleasant
manner. His earnest words will
have a good effect upon all who
were fortunate enough to hear
them. We regret that-lack of
space forbids a report of the whole.
A very important meeting of
the Rugby Association is to be
held next Saturday, as per notice
in another column. A new con-
stitution is to be presented and
discussed as well as projects for
raising funds for the expenses of
the eleven this fall. Every foot-
ball player, and every man at all
interested in our athletics is urged
THE D. A. C. CRAWL.
It is unfortunate that the eleven
were deprived of their first prac-
tice game, owing to a sudden
change of base of the D. A. C.
Captain Malley considered the
engagement a binding one, but.
hearing nothing from the Detroit
men, he sent a man down on Fri-
day to investigate, who found that
they had no intention whatever of
playing us on Saturday, the rather
lame excuse being, that they had
not yet gotten a team together.
Had they notified our manage-
ment early oftheirinability to play,
a game could have been arranged
with some other team, but the fact
that they sent no notice makes
their position look like an unman-
ly "erawl" of which we received
the full benefit.

PROF. F. M. TAYLOR.
A Good Man In Dr. Adams' Place.
Prof. Taylor was born in North-
ville, Mich., in 1855. His father
was a physician and studied in a
seminary here at Ann Arbor, be-
fore the establishment of the U.
TC professor prepared for col-
lege - t. Clemens, Mich., then
took a college course at the North-
western University, graduating in
'76. In his senior year he repre-
sented his college in a contest,
held in New York, of an inter-co-
legiate literary association formed
mostly by Eastern colleges, but
into which our own University
did not enter. The association,
however, lasted but a few years.
In this contest Mr. Taylor read
two essays, taking first prize in
Literature and the second in
The professor took the degree
M. A. in '71. He taught one
year in the Winnetka high school,
then for eleven years taught His-
tory and Political Economy. In
'88 he received the Ph. D. degree
from the U. of M. Prof. Taylor
also attended Johns Hopkins for
a few months.
Upon the nomination of Pres.
Angell, he was appointed a mem-n
of the council of the American
Academy of Social and Political
Science and is to contribute an
article to its new quarterly.
The candidates for the eleven
will go to a training table at
Prettyman's within a few days.
A bath and dressing room is being
fitted up for their use in the base-
ment of the medical building.

success. Fast time was made in
