Cost Of Education
Doubled Since 1900
The cost of a higher education
is twice the price of the same edu-
cation in 1900, and the average
yearly cost of attending college is
$581.00; these two facts are part of
a number of figures collected by
the United States bureau of edu-
cation, after a survey of 1,100 col-
leges throughout the country.
The $581.00 includes everything
spint, tuition fees, books, board
and room, clothing, and entertain-
ment. Of course this figure means
sticiking very close to an establish-
ed budget, and a minimum of the

term. Law courses cost about $50.-

The average cost of board and
room amounts to $276.00 for the
college year. The. yearly average
for books and stationary is ap-
proximately $20.00. $36.00 is the
laundry average.The average min-
imum for entertainment is $12.00.
With the above figures it is cer-
tainly hard to discover where all
the money goes to.
Included in the report of the bu-
reau was the following remark,
"Travel should not necessarily add
much to the students expenses.
For with good roads and the varied
means of transportation now avail-
able, an energetic student will find
a way to keep dfown the costs of
travel." This sounds very much
like an advocation of the past time
