Registration Statistics
'lhe annual registration of stu

there were 608 new students,
including 477 freshmen. The

and 600 members, and although 24
new houses have been erected in
the village since last fall, a few have
found difficulty in securing lodging.
The Forestry course has a num
ber of new foreign students, repre
senting . Argentine, Brazil, Russia,
Turkey, China, Persia, Sweden,
