HE growth of the college this year has been one of steady
advancement, unmarked by any particularly striking events.
The long-contemplated new courses were put in operation

in Dr. Field's department. Mr. Barlow left the college to accept
a position in Kansas University. Mr. Card, Cornell, '92, began
