The university has arranged a se-
ries of evening courses in citizenship
for the benefit of adult alien men and.
women who desire to become citizens
of the United States.

In reporting on the final plans, the
special building committee, which con-
sisted of the late Dean Guthe, Pro-
fessors Demmon, Wenley and Mr. W.
W. Bishop, university librarian, ex-
plained that their general purpose was
to provide as much workhIg space for
study and for the library staff, and
also for the future needs of a greatly
enlarged student body, as the appro-
priations would allow.

Puccini's delightful opera, "La Bo-

with Maggie Teyte as Mimi, while
Ricardo Martin, who appeared here
two years ago as a May festival artist,

make up what is said to be one of the
strongest casts ever given this opera}
for an American presentation.
Immediately following "La Boheme"
Pavlowa and her associates will give
a Spanish ballet which is spirited in
action, tuneful in its accompanying
music and offers a riot of color.
For the evening performance Lean-

will be given and the cast will include
Giovanni Zenatello, Felice Lyne, Gra-

Following this opera Pavlowa and

Princeton Deficit Less Than Ever
Princeton-The deficit of the uni-
versity for last year was nearly 50
per cent less than in 1914. This de-
licit, as previouslr. has been met by
graduates. In the last ten years 19
new buildings have been erected, cost-
ing $4,157,080.
Nebraska Challenges Washington
Washington-The University of Ne-
braska has sent a challenge for a foot-
ball game to take place in October, and
to be played in Seattle, with a return
game at Lincoln the following season.

"Keep on the move and take plenty
of moderate exercise" was the advice
that Dr. G. A. May gave yesterday,
as a preventative of the epidemic of
grippe that has recently swept across
the country. "But remember T say
moderate exercise," continued the
doctor. "That is as much an Injunc-
tion to those who exercise for matters
of health as with the modern college
athlete. Any excess is as bad as ab-
solute neglect, for the growing ten-
dency of modern science in athletic
matters is moderation, with a contin-
uance of the same practices all
through life."
As a matter of comparison, the case
of the late Tom Shevlin was cited by
Dr. May as a proof of his contention.
"Shevlin was one of that virile, red-
blooded set of men who have made
American athletics the thrilling and
sportsmanlike institution it is. But
Shevlin was a man of extremes. While
in college he played a fierce, vigorous
game of football, and when he left
he settled down into a sedentary busi-
ness life, varied only by his annual
visits to Yale, at which times he
threw himself into the game with all
the strength he could command. An
excess of this kind brought on his
death for the glory of Yale."

The doctor is an example of his
own beliefs. There is probably no
other director of physical training in
any of the large colleges or universi-
ties throughout the country who leads
his own classes in person. Yet any
time during class exercises the doctor
is to be seen in his little gray uniform
directing his men through the vari-
ous forms and exercises. With a
splendid physique, good health and
one of the most pleasant personalities
on the campus, he is "living up to the
stern rules of life which he has laid
down for himself. "It's all in getting
the habit," the doctor smiled. "I like

To Erect Laboratories at Columbia
Columbia-Plans to make the Uni-
versity a national industrial research
center are fast taking shape. Two
sites have already been offered, upon
which it is planned to erect research
laboratories to cost $350,000, with
$150,000 equipment. The entire pro-
ject calls for an ultimate endowment
of from $2,000,000 to $5,000,000.

The Trust Problem.-E. Dana Durand,
Professor of Statistics in the Uni-

Dr. Durand's book is a result of sev-

1914. This book is all the more valu-
able because it comes froni a mar
who was for many years director of

deals with the legal aspects of the
trust problem. There are three wNys
of dealing with the trust problem ae-
cording to Dr. Durand. They are a
follows: laissez-faire,, regulaifop, p

book is devoted to the purpose of
showing that the laissez-faire policy
is not the policy to be employed hf
