    LETTER BOX,
ursinus college, collegeville, pa,, Sep
tember 20th, 1889.
To the Editors of “ The Free Lance
Ursinus has entered upon the 20th year of
its history better equipped for work than ever
before. During the summer vacation, the ex
terior of the college buildings was entirely
renewed, giving them as bright and attractive
an appearance as if just erected. Several
recitation rooms and many of the private
apartments of the students have also been re
fitted.
The Fall session opened September 3rd
with a large attendance of the old students
and about forty additions in the different de
partments. The new professors of the col
lege will thus begin their work under most
auspicious circumstances. Prof. Stibitz, who
comes from Yale with splendid credentials
and the degree of Ph. D., will take the chair
of the Latin language and Literature, (lately
vacated by Professor Hyde to accept a call
to Lehigh University,) and will also teach
Hebrew.
The department of Music has received a
valuable accession in the person of Professor
Michael J. Kegrize, a graduate of the Leipsig
Conservatory and a pupil of Carl Reinecke.
The highly gratifying financial results at
tained during 1888-89 may again be equalled
this year, if not indeed surpassed, should the
happy prospects in this direction continue.
During the very first few days of the new
term, the treasurer was most agreeably sur
prised by receiving notice of the endowment
of two additional scholarships of $lOOO each
by friends of the college, and other substantial
evidences of the esteem in which the institu
tion is held continue to abound on all sides.
The work of what thus promises to be the
best year of the college is at this writing well
under way, and the preparations for the num
erous customary events of the term, including
the anniversaries of the Schaff and Ebrard
Literary Societies, are actively in progress.
Sincerely yours,
Editors of “ The Bulletin .”
