Yale's New Recitation Hall.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Osborn Hall, Yale's new recitation hall, was formally opened last Tuesday morning, when President Dwight, in presence of a large number of students, delivered a dedicatory address. In few words President Dwight gave an account of the manner in which the building was given to Yale, and made a few appropriate remarks.

The new hall is by far the finest recitation building at Yale. The various rooms have a total seating capacity of 1450, almost equal to the present number of students; the large lecture rooms will seat nearly three hundred men each. The lighting arrangements are excellent, the small basement rooms being better lighted than most of the college buildings. The heating and ventilating system is perfect; in the cellar an enormous fan changes the air in every room in the building once in ten minutes, while the electric system makes the temperature self-regulating.
