course of lectures, which will be two
hours a week, will be given by Dr.
Frederick C. Hicks. Dr. Hicks
has given a great deal of attention
to this subject. He will treat in
this course of the theories of foreign
and domestic trade, of the industrial
resources of the United States on
which trade must rest, and of the
possibilities of developing a foreign
commerce for the United States.
He will, also, speak of the principles
of free trade and protection in con-
nection with foreign trade. This
course of lectures will be most in-
teresting and instructive. The stu-
dents who are prepared to elect it
are earnestly recommended to do
Fourth: "Seminary in the Science
of Finance." This course will be
limited to students who are prepared
to take advanced work in the science
of finance. The study undertaken
will be either the Financial History
of the United States or Taxing
System in the United States. It will
be conducted by myself, with some
assistance from Mr. Hicks.
I am, of course, very solicitous
that the work in economics should
not suffer on account of my partial
absence during the year. I am sure
it has not suffered at all under the
proficient direction of Professor
Taylor, and I think that the stu-
dents will see from the above pro-
gram that it is not likely to suffer
during the second Semester.
HENRY C. ADAMS.
The Gymnasium Committee.
The general committee for the
students met last night at the Alpha
Delt house and organized for active
work. Mr. Vandeventer was made
chairman and Mr. Hinchman, secre-
tary and treasurer. It was then de-
cided to take charge of the sale of
tickets for Dr. Gatchell's lecture
next Saturday night. A committee
consisting of Messrs. Codd, Farrand
and Griffin was appointed to devise
means and discuss plans for raising
money among the students. A re-
quest was also made that each mem-
ber :of the committee write to his
friends for "gym" funds.
Miss J. M. Miller was unable to
attend classes yesterday, on account
The S. C. A. Social.
A crowd of about four hundred
students and other young people
were present Saturday evening at the
social given by the Young People's
Society of the Presbyterian churc
to the S. C. A. A social feeling
pervaded the whole assembly and all
seemed to enjoy themselves. To
aid the young people in learning
each other's names, the original de -
vice was adopted of labeling each
person with a card upon which was
written his name in the very legible
handwriting of W. F. Hubbard.
After a great deal of introducing,
hand-shaking and talking, a well
rendered program was listened to,
consisting of music, recitations and
tableaux. The second recitation by
Miss Blunt, and the tableau of "the
small brother" were particularly well
received. Of course the small
brother has a big sister, and she has
a lover; the boy hides under the
sofa and is witness of a very interest-
ing scene, for which in the second
part of the tableau he is receiving
punishment at the hands of the
The social ended by some well
chosen remarks from Rev. J. M.
Methods of "Mind-Readers."
The interest which is taken in the
at the University Hall, next Satur-
day evening, has led to many in-
quiries regarding its nature. We
are authorized to state that Dr.
Gatchell will repeat in the presence
of the audience the many feats made
famous by Washington Irving Bishop
and other "mind-readers." He
will have a large committee on the
stage, and through the minds of its
nembers he proposes to "read" var-
ious things to him unknown. The
program will present a great variety,
be of unusual interest.
After consultation with the Chair-
man of the Gymnasium Committee,
it has been decided to make the
price of tickets to Dr. Gatchell's en-
tertainment, next Saturday evening,
50 cents insterd of 25 cents, as here-
tofore announced. Since the entire
receipts will be turned over to the
gymnasium fund, the public may
feel that they are simply contribut-
ing that amount to this very worthy
object, in which all are so much in-
