At one o'clock on Commencement Day, the Co-operative Society will close the most successful year in its history. On a capital stock of only $6,000 a business of $70,000 has been done, $5,000 more than last year. The dividend declared last year was 43 cts. on the dollar profit. Of course it cannot now be definitely stated what the dividend will be this year. The chances are, however, that it will be larger. At any rate Professor Taussig and Mr. Lyford are determined to declare the dividend as soon as possible next fall.
On July 6th the college will make several changes in Dane Hall. The partition around the book room and the office will be torn down and the result will be a much larger and better lighted book room with a space railed off for the office. New shelving will be put in. The college will occupy the rooms now occupied by the tailoring department which will have rooms as near Dane Hall as possible.
The Co-operative has established a reputation for its stationery, especially for its blue books, and many a large order for the latter has been filled recently for other colleges.
Seniors and others will do well to bear in mind that they need not sever their connection with the Co-operative when they leave Cambridge. All orders will be promptly and carefully attended to.
