WE are very glad to see the interest that is being generally taken in colleges throughout the country in the exhibition at Chicago next summer. For the past few months we have seen numberless items to the effect that "Amherst has applied for a thousand square feet at the World's Fair", "The University of Michigan has received $3000 from the state towards the expenses of an exhibit at the World's Fair", and many others. In short it appears that nearly every college in the United States will be, in one way or another, represented at Chicago next summer. There are to be biological exhibits, botanical, exhibits, psychological exhibits etc. all in charge of prominent specialists from colleges.
It is eminently fitting, at an exhibition of every thing showing the great advances we have made in the last century, that the Universities should be well represented. It will show to every visitor of the Fair that the Universities of America are full of energy and that they are accomplishing good work, and, if such a things is possible, it will raise them in the estimation of the people. There is an endeavor now being made to have college journalism represented. Such an exhibit will certainly be interesting and will afford an excellent opportunity for everybody to compare the merits of the various papers.
All the Harvard papers are to be represented, and we sincerely hope that the exhibition will in every way prove successful.
