At present there are over thirteen hundred registrants for the University Extension Courses given in Boston by members of the teaching staff of the University and of other local colleges and universities. In spite of the increase over last year's total of 1184, however, it is pointed out by the University Extension Commission that registration is still far from complete.
Students are still registering for all but the language courses, though only a few have signed up so far for the second half-year which is expected to begin in February with a record enrollment. The exact enrollment for the first half-year stands at 1309.
