Barristers of Pist Year Numbered lien
From Nearly 190 UIT. S and
Foreign Schools
Ninety colleges and universities, sit-
uated in the United States, Japan and
Switzerland, were represented in the
law department of the university by
one or more students during the reg-
ular term.. The marked increase in
the last few years in respect to gradu-
ate students shows the gradual growth
of the department into a graduate
The enrollment in the department
last semester was about 550, a de-
crease of over 100 from last year's
record. The falling off is due to the
recently added literary requirements,
making one year of literary work com-
pulsory for admission into the legal
branch of university work. One hun-
dred and ten colleges were represented
by students last year, and comparing
the present record of 94 with the pre-
vious record, shows the falling off of
graduates not in ratio with the de-
creased enrollment.
Out of 216 students enrolled in the
senior law class, 52 were college grad-
uates. Of this number 28 were gradu-
ates of Michigan while the remaining
24 represented outside colleges. Since
in many cases more than one student
enters the school from the same uni-
versity, the number of colleges other
than Michigan represented in the sen-
ior class, numbered 19.
One hundred twenty students com-
posed the junior class, out of which,
69 received their degrees in literary
work, 41 from Michigan and 28 from
outside colleges. The latter 28 stu-
dents represent 21 colleges foreign to
Michigan. Eighty-five non-graduates
complete the junior enrollment.
A registration of 194 students has
been made in the last freshman class.
Twenty seven of the enrolled were
college graduates, five from Michigan,
and the remaining 22 from other uni-
versities. The 167 non-graduates in
this class were divided into, 40 coin-
bined course men, 88 from the Michi-
gan literary department, and the re-
saining 39 entered from other colleges
without degrees. The 88 Michigan
non-graduates were divided into one,
two and three year literary men; 60
from the first class, 25 from the sec-
ond and 3 from the third. Of the 39
students from outside colleges, six
have had three years' literary work,
17, two years' literary work, and 16,

The skeleton of the extinct hippo-
potamus found in the Pleistocene de-
posits of Madagascar, which was pre-
sented to the university museum by
ex-governor Chase S. Osborn, will not
be placed on exhibition until some-
time during the fall. Mr. N. A. Wood,
the taxidermist, is at White Fish Point,
Michigan, this summer, and is engaged
in gathering birds and reptiles found
in that part of the state. He will ar-
rive here about the first of September,
and the work in taxidermy will be re-
sumed. The skull, however, is on ex-
hibition on the first floor of the mu-
seum, having ben prepared by Mr.
Wood before leaving.

Six lectures and an organ recital
will make up the entertainment pro-
gram for the coning week. All of the
