Yale Claims to be the National University.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Following is an editorial taken from the Yale News:

"The conclusions reached by Mr. William M. Kingsley in his article entitled "Yale a National University," which appeared in the February number of the New Englander and Yale Review should be highly gratifying to all interested in the success of Yale. The intent of the article is not to prove Yale's percentage of western growth to be greater than that of Harvard-as the Harvard Advocate recently attempted to do, but with questionable success but to show that Yale is a "National" University in every sense of the word, and the reasons why she gained that title at such an early date as she did. Not only are at states but two and also many foreign countries represented, but the residences of the members of the faculty are widely scattered. Then again not only the students but also the professors come from many different denominations. These, with other minor reasons which the reader will readily notice, gained for Yale many years ago the title of "National" University, which she still maintains."
