Columbia is organizing a second eight.

The News dubs Dr. Crosby "officious."

Amherst, '83, has chosen Pach photographer.

There are nearly thirty-five hundred students at Leipsic University.

Thirty-seven cadets of the Pennsylvania Military Academy were expelled Monday night, for attending a theatrical exhibiton.

It is rumored that Dr. McCosh is to retire from the presidency of Princeton College and is to be succeeded by Gen. McClellan.

"Another match factory started. The University of Mississippi is blessed with a co-ed department" is the way a Western paper puts it.

The Yale News modestly states that it (the News) "should be a source of gratification to the college just as much as the ball nine or the crew."

Ex-President Woolsey of Yale contributes a long article to the New York Independent upon the subject of "University Administration."

The Government Industrial School for Indian youths, for which appropriations were made by the last Congress, will be located at Lawrence, Kan.

The New York Critic has begun publishing a series of lists of books in various departments of knowledge most useful and valuable to students and amateurs.

Yale is having an epidemic of fires. The second fire of the week broke out in the president's house, and the students think now they have some chance of obtaining fire-escapes.

Last week's Congregationalist gives tables showing the number of professing Christians in various colleges. Amherst, according to this authority, leads the list, with Oberlin second and Harvard last.

The Vassar Miscellany and the Lasell Leaves alone of all our college exchanges affect practical politics, the former writing six-page editorials on Butler and Massachusetts politics, and the latter maintaining a special "political editor." A significant fact.

Bowdoin College has furnished to the nation a President, twenty-two senators and representatives in Congress, fourteen judges of high courts, nine governors of States, eighteen college presidents, a Longfellow, a Hawthorne and an S. S. Prentiss, says President Chamberlain.

Hannibal Hamlin spoke to college students in Maine recently, strongly advising them to practice extemporaneous speaking. He thinks the value of this acquirement in a public man cannot be over-estimated.

It is not so very long since the Vassar students were publicly forbidden to kiss the professors' children, because not only the tempers but the features of said "infants" were endangered. Imagine the "temper" of anyone not a professor's child on being subjected to such an indignity!

A new departure has recently been made at Johns Hopkins, which consists in establishing several courses of lectures by professors and students on subjects with which they are especially familiar. Two such courses are now in progress - one on physiology and the other on chemistry.

A Yale man, who was a guest at Memorial one day last term, when he heard of the many complaints against the fare, declared that it was fully as good as Yale students got at New Haven. "In either case," he said, "the meat could be chewed, and the bottom of a cup of the rather weak coffee was not actually visible to the naked eye."

"If one college's jealousy of another is allowed to take root, then the new Intercollegiate Rowing Association may as well disband now, as it would inevitably do in the near future," says the News. "It seems difficult enough," it continues despondingly, "to arrange the preliminaries of a race in which only two are concerned, and it will of course be proportionately more difficult for six contestants to agree."

"IT ARE DISAPPOINTED."The new Reading Room Association at Harvard are greatly disappointed at the "lack of appreciation on the part of the college in general." Can it be that the Harvard student has neither time nor inclination to read current literature? Perhaps interest in athletics is reviving once more. - [News.
