A study of the University Catalogue which appeared yesterday makes clear what Harvard's progress has been during the past year. Although there has not been a large number of radical changes there has been a general strengthening of the facilities for instruction, and the courses which are now offered are more attractive than ever. This is particularly true of the Scientific School. There has been an attempt in the past few years to make the School second to none in the country and the effort has been rewarded by a most gratifying increase in the number of students in attendance. That a like increase of numbers has taken place in all branches of the University is evidence that the development has not been confined to one or two departments, but has been healthy and uniform. Although the growth has not been as considerable as it was last year, it must be remembered that this is true at nearly every college in the country and that the unhappy condition of the country at large must inevitably have had its influence on college attendance. The parts of the catalogue which deals with the graduate and professional schools are full of significance. It is interesting, for instance, to learn that seventy different colleges are represented by graduates in the Law School; between seventy and eighty in the Graduate School; and thirty-five in the Medical School. These men have come, not only from American colleges, but in some cases from the great English and European Universities. All of which goes to show that Harvard is, in the true sense of the word, a university, and to prove her right to be considered the leading institution of learning in America.
