The Year H EN the year opened, the sorrow over the death of President Schaeffer was still fresh in our thoughts, social events were rarer than usual and the general life was visibly tinged by that sad event. However, all the work of the University went on moniously and successfully. In spite of the diminution in the attendance in the Dental and Medical departments by reason of the added year required, the total number of students in the University was 1,283 against 1,313 in the preceding year, while the Collegiate department made a gain over any previous period. At the June Commencement the delivery of the baccalaureate discourse by a Jew and the participation in this service by Catholic and Protestant clergymen exhibited the catholic spirit of the University and the breadth and brotherhood of men of widely different religious views. The notable acts of the Regents were the election of Chancellor George E. MacLean of the University of Nebraska to the Presidency of the versity, the election of Professor C. F. Ansley as an additional professor of English, the appointment of Dr. Knipe as Instructor in Athletics and provision for an annual Bulletin of the linguistic and historical sciences, and the monthly News Bulletin. In August the football team returned for ing under Dr. Knipe and thus laid the foundation for the most successful series of games ever played by a university team. President MacLean entered upon his duties in September and from the first justifed the choice of the Regents. The inauguration ceremonies were marked by the breadth and strength of the President ' s discourse and the ability and appropriateness of the other dresses rendering the occasion one of great interest and profit. President MacLean has introduced a new and important function in the " Convocation which brings together the whole university body. Collegiate Hall has been carried up to the third story. The inauguration of the summer session postponed a year ago is a decided step in advance that promises much for the University. The expenditure of the proceeds of the special tax for the restoration of the Library has provided a reference Library unexcelled in quality even if needing large additions in the immediate future. The organization of the Athletic Union composed of representatives of Students, Alumni, and the Faculties has given unity to athletic interest and direction and opens a new era of effective work and financial management. The year is also notable for debt paying movements on the part of the Athletic Union, and the Christian Associations likely to be completed successfully. 7
