During the past year, several important changes have been made in the style of the bi-weeklies at Yale. Up to the present year, the Courant and the Record have been conducted on the same plan, and they have given themselves up to the lightest kind of literature. But Yale is unwilling to support two papers of this style, and to meet the demand of the University the '88 boards of editors have made radical changes in the respective fields of the Record and Courant.
The Record will continue to print light articles and amusing stories, but an artistic editor has been added. This change is intended to make the Record similar to the Harvard Lampoon. The Courant, on the other side, will give up publishing light articles and will confine itself to work of a historical character, thus becoming a medium between the Record and the Literary Magazine.
This radical change has already been favorably received, and the finances of these two papers have been greatly improved.
