The intellectual growth of our University is pleasantly emphasized by the statistics which are published in this year's catalogue. The freshman class is fully a third as large again as the entrance classes of ten years ago. In the college alone there is a gain of 124 students over last year. These facts attest that the prosperity which has marked Harvard's career in the past is not yet on the wane, and that we may look forward to the time when our classes will equal in numbers those of the large English universities. The number of scholarships has been largely increased by recent bequests, and we can assert with greater truth than ever that no man need fear, on the score of poverty, to make Harvard his home.
