The Exeter Alumni Dinner.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The New York Alumni Association of the Phillips Exeter Academy held their sixth annual dinner at the Hoffman House, Wednesday evening. Not only was the banquet productive of important results socially, but various measures for furthering the interests of the academy were discussed at length. Steps were taken toward the building of a chemical laboratory, and resolutions were made informally to increase the number of scholarships and to improve the library. The old question of raising the instructors' salaries was broached, but it was deemed impracticable to arrive at any favorable decision until the endowment could be increased. The Hon. E. B. Merrill presided, and toasts were responded to by Prof. Dunbar, of Harvard University, and Profs. Wentworth and Kittredge, instructors at the academy and graduates of Harvard.
