DEMAND FOR INFORMATION ON
SUMMER COURSES UNUSUAL
Record Breaking Attendance Expected
at Extra Session by Dean E.
"What impresses us in the summer
session office is the unprecedented de-
mand for information concerning this
year's courses," said Dean E. H. Kraus
Thursday. "It is a source of great
satisfaction to see that the'session
of 1919 bids fair to break all pre-
vious ¢records of attendance."
Although the announcements were
printed in a larger edition than ever
before, the demand is such that the
number left is rapidly becoming ex-
hausted. To try to meet the increas-
ing demand a new edition has gone
to press in a different form, being
larger than the first abridged edition
but not as large as the last announce-
The new pamphlets, which are in-
tended chiefly for campus consump-
tion, are expected to be printed in a
week's time. The booklets will run
from 32 to 48 pages in length, giving
only the various courses obtainable
and the different faculty members.
