    should state the case to the colleges whose dele
gates were not present, and that they should send
their votes by mail. The matter was decided in
favor of State, so we will have the meeting here
on the i9th of May. State offers first-class in
ducements and the meeting cannot fail to be
pleasant and profitable to all who attend. The
convention was a muddle all the way through
and we hope to have a more business-like meet
ing at our next.
—The catalogues for '93—'94 are out, and are
quite an improvement on the former ones. They
are not long and broad as formerly, but are
thicker. The subject matter is more conveniently
arranged, and the schedules - of studies, together
with the tabulated arrangement are a great im
provement on former issues. The number of
students at the time the catalogue went to print
was 318. Of this number 182 are in the College
Department, 34 in the Agricultural Department,
and 102 in the Preparatory Department. In the
College there are 6 post graduates, 24 Seniors,
34 Juniors, 49 Sophomores, 63 Freshmen and 6
pursuing special courses, The number of in
structors is 40.
In addition to the Mining Engineering course,
two new courses in pure science have been added
to the curriculum, one in higher mathematics
and one in physics. They are intended for
specialists and (Or those who wish to. teach.
Another new feature .is a summer school for stu
dents in the three lower classes of the technical
courses. It is to consist of TOO hours work in
the field, shop, laboratory and mine, and will
prol,;e to be a good plan. The standard of ad
mission has been raised and in all courses the
mathematical studies have been pushed forward
one term, so as to give opportunity for three
terms of calculus instead of two, as was formerly
the case. There have also been a number of
changes in the Junior and Senior schedules of the
technical courses.
—The College Glee and Banjo Clubs left here
March 29th for their spring tour, visiting the cities
of Williamsport, Beech Creek, Clearfield, Tyrone,
Altoona and Bellefonte. The trip was a financial
as well as a musical success. At most places the
houses were poor, yet every body that heard them
was well pleased, which promises much for next
year. The clubs were well organized and man
aged. With one exception these are the first
clubs sent from the College, and we should be
proud of the record they have made. The pro
gram as given on the tour was practically the same
as given in their opening concert in the College
chapel. The clubs comprised the following men:
