decided success. Over 170 enrolled,
most of whom are doing work which
counts toward, a degree. The new
school of Teaching which began its
work at the opening of the session
proved to be a special attraction. It
offers courses which give training to
those who expect to teach in high
schools, academies, normal schools,
eac., and also gives training for
principals or superintendents. For
admission to this school a student
must have at least junior standing in
the University and while this cuts
down the attendance a large num-
ber of th«ose who are not yet quali-
fied to enroll in the school are tak-
ing courses which will prepare them
for this work at some later date. The
demand for college courses in the
summer time in Oklahoma has grown
very markedly in the last few years
and the University plans to make this
session a regular part of the year's

plentiful profusion of stars and
