dwelt at some length on the work of the
summer school, urging a reduction of
fees. The following is his statement:
"The Summer School, which has here-
tofore been conducted by permission of
the board under a voluntary organiza-
tion of such members of the literary
and law faculties as chose to teach, was
during the past year, so far as the lit-
erary and engineering departments
were concerned, placed on a different-
basis. The board assumed the direct
charge of the school, and appointed the
instructors. This action was taken at
the request of the literary faculty. The
pecuniary risk, if any, was thus as-
suned by the board. Some advantages
tere gained by thi schange, and tse
fees received ecrrded by a small uss
the expense incurred. The number in
attendance was as follows: Literary
and Engineering Departments, 221; Lawt
Department, 45; total, 266. Of the 45 in
the Law Department 27 have remained
to take up the regular work.
"The Summer School seeems to have
become a necessary adjunct to most of
the principal colleges and universitis
and to many normal schools. It is chief-
i1 resorted to by teachers who wish
to prepare themselves for some speia
work, though the collegiate and normal
students furnish a considerable contin-
gent. Of its utility, both to those who
attend thetm, and to the institutions
that maintan them, there can be no
doubt. The summer vacation of school
and college in this country, is so long
that one half of it can e given to study
by many teachers without serious
harm. Access to college libraries, and
to laboratories, when the best methods
of teaching are found, and association
with inspiring teachers for a few weeks,
refresh and stimulate them and prepare
them to return to their work with new
seal and with etter outit for their
duties. On the other hand the college
makes a distinct gain by establishing
during this summer residence of teach-
ers a closer relation with them and by
making apparent to them the advan-
tages which their pupils may find in
entering on - collegiate work. Every-
thing which draws our schools and
University closer to each other, and
enables each to gain a better under-
standing of the other, is a positive ad-
vantage to education in general.I
therefore deem it wise for the board to
do whatever is practicable to promote
the interest of our Summer School. A
subject which deserves careful consid-
eration is whether we can not safely
make some reduction in the fees. The
sum now added is rather a heavy tax
on many teachers, who receive only
very modest salaries. There is good
reason to believe that a reduction of
one-third in the fees would so largely
increase our numbers that possibly our
total receipts would not be diminished.
If this should prove to be the fact, we
should be making the school much more
useful by a wider diffusion of its ble
logs. As our aim is to reach and help
ac many as possible by the school, I
trust the board may give careful con-
sideration to the question whether the
fees may sot be safely reduced. But
this result should nut be saught by any

to take part in the instruction. In that
case, a larger number of graduate
students would probably attend thc
summer session. The large attendance
of braduates at the summer term of the
universities, which induce their leading
professors to teach in them, indicates a
real demand on their part for such
Secret Practice Itor Wisconsin.
Yesterday the 'Varsity began its
secret practice in preparation for the
W'isconsin game. A stiff practice was
gone through with, the men developing
very much faster play than that
displayed the day before. The coac-es
declared themselves pretty well satis-
fled. Snow was not out. The forward.0
were the same as they were the day b
fore except center, which tas filled by
Barcabus. Cunningham was gicvbn a
rest as were also McLean, Street and
Deena. The whole right end of the
line nuts seems to be fixed, with Seig-
mund, Steckle, and Snow when he gets
back in the game. In the absence of
France, Wilson will undoubtedly re-
main at left guard. Left tackle and
end remain still in doubt. Hugh White
is again beginning to show good form
ct left guard and fills it better than he
does end. Weeks and Sweeley played
the halves yesterday. Richardson yes-
terday played full back and proved a
good man in the place. He gives prom-
ise of better stork there than the others
who have been tried lately.
Practice will be see!tet from now on.

"A Leader" complained in Monday's

Clarence -Eddt in an Orgqan Recital
For many years Clarence Eddy has
been the acknowledged chief among
American organists. By his brilliant
and wonderfully successful concert
work in Europe in recent years he has
established himself pre-eminently
among the organ virtuosos of the
world. His work in this country is far
too well known to require any comment
here, his every appearance having add-
ed to the high fqcler in which he was
already universally held. In Europe he
has not only been enthusiastically wel-
comed and applauded by the public, but
has gained the friendly recognition of
the greatest composers and interpretero
of organ music. He is one of the few
who have been able to withstand severe
European criticism. After a most try-
ing ordeal he remains a favorite among
the people of Europe. Of Mr. Eddy's
playing no more need he said than is
cntained in this testimonial, given him
by the great master Haupt at the end
of his studies with him: "In organ
playing the performances of Mr. Edcy
are worthy to be designated as eminent,
and he is undoubtedly the peer of the
greatest living organists."

No foreign artist who has visited

so-called admiration) and admiration
