THE PRESIDENT'S REPORT.

DURING the past year the cost of instruction at Harvard has been so much discussed that the President has been to some trouble to get at an accurate statement of college expenses. As the result of a large number of inquiries, he found that the smallest annual expenditure was $471, and the largest $2,500. Since this wide range of expenditure gave insufficient data from which to make fair estimates, the President has prepared a table to exhibit four scales of annual expenditure. This table is restricted to the nine months of college life, and is, we think, a very fair estimate of college expenses: -

Least. Economical. Moderate. Ample.

Tuition, $150 $150 $150 $150

Books, 20 25 30 35

Stationery, 8 10 15 26

Clothing, 70 120 150 300

Room, 30 30 100 175

Furniture (annual average), 10 15 25 50

Board, 140* 175- 175- 304-

Fuel and light, 11 15 30 45

Washing, 15 20 40 50

Car-fares, 15 15 30 50

Societies and subscription to

sports (annual average) 35 50

Servant, 30
