Dr. Patton, president-elect of Princeton, has just returned from a trip through the Western cities, where he was entertained by the various Princeton clubs. His inauguration will take place on Wednesday of Commencement week, the day after Dr. McCosh's resignation takes effect. It is Dr. Patton's intention sedulously to push forward the work begun by Dr. McCosh of founding and endowiug a large number of university fellowships. Next fall a new fellowship in architecture with an annual income of $400 will be opened. Princeton is especially fortunate in new buildings. The Biological Laboratory, a gift of the class of '77, is nearly completed, and the Art School is being rapidly pushed forward. If Dr. Patton succeeds in getting a new dormitory, gymnasium and commencement hall, Princeton will possess an especially fine set of buildings.
