The University is developing, in an educational way, as is no similar institution in the country. The changes and improvements made and planned in the different departments are very numerous. Moreover, the University is so large that no single student can have means of knowing the progress that is being made in the institution as a whole. We consider it eminently desirable, from the student standpoint, that the University's growth should be carefully studied.
In presenting the facts, we are nearly powerless without the assistance of the officers and professors. We hope that means will now be furnished whereby they, without inconvenience to themselves, can give the requisite material. The system, we think, will also save them from many intrusions on their time. Hearty cooperation on their part is earnestly desired. A similar system has already been tried on a limited scale; we look for proportionately better results now that it is tried on a larger scale.
