Yale's new Pyschological Laboratory which is to consist of ten rooms will be one of the largest in the country. There are several new features proposed of which perhaps the most important is the pyschometric room. This will contain a set of tests of the mental condition such as memory, sensitiveness, fatigue, emotion, etc. Besides this there will be a well ventilated and darkened room for reactions, thick padding preventing all disturbances arising from noise. In connection with the laboratory there will be a work shop where the apparatus may be repaired.
Dr. Scripture of Clark University will assume the instruction in pyschology, but the head of the department of philosophy ethics and psychology will still be Prof. Ladd. The establishment of the laboratory is largely due to the latter's efforts.
