ted so far this year vary only

If there is any difference in theI
aber of applications received this
imer as compared with the num-f
received last year, it will in all1
bability tend towards a slight #e-
ase," Registrar Smith said.
1r; Smith attributes this probable
rease to th fact that immediatelyr

pie entered universities, whichI
ught up the ad A9,ionflgures with
marked rapidity, but as gglsiderable

an, the usual back ebb is taking
