The CoOege is again a contributor of
$100 to the Marine Biological Labora-
tory at Woods Hole, and thus may be
represented at the Laboratory in the
summer of 1916 by one research student
or by two students taking courses of in-
struction. The students appointed for
1016 are M. Taylor, of the class of 1018,
and G. Bryant, unclassified student.

The College was represented at the
inauguration of Pres. Sussallo of the
University of Washington, March 80
and 21, by Anna A. Trefethen, '90; at the

All examinations for admission, both
those of the old plan and those of the
new plan (under the name of " compre-
hensive examinations") are to be given
in the future by the College Entrance
Examination Board. For women candi-
dates these examinations will be held in
the Raddiffe College buildings. In Sep-
tember the examinations will be given in
new plan subjects only.

At the meeting of the Cooncfl on
March 6, it was voted that a Freshman
who had not satisfied the gymnasium
requirements for Freshmen must, in her
Sophomore year or in some subsequent
year, satisfy the Dean as to such re-
quirements.

The biographical catalogue was issued
April 1. The register of students is an
attempt to print for the first time a list
of every one who ever studied at Rad-
diffe, up to and induding the year 1914r-
15. The list of bachelors of arts, ar-
ranged by classes, contains biographical
information. The figures show that the
total number of students is 4176. 1522
are holders of the A.B. degree, 929 are
graduate students (299 holding the first



degree from Raddiffe College and 680
from other colleges), and 2024 are special
students or regular students who have
not completed the work for the degree.
84 holders of the A.B. degree, and 12
graduate students who came from other
colleges, have died.

The Dean entertained the Freshmen
at tea at her house on Feb. 17, 24, and
25. The second annual luncheon of
the Raddiffe Chapter of Phi BeU Kap-
pa was held in Agassis House on Satur-
day, April 15. The luncheon was pre-
ceded by brief initiation exercises in the
theatre. The president, E. N. Bucking-
ham, '02, was toastmistress at the lun-
cheon. Miss Boody, the first speaker,
toudied on the problem of making edu-
cation mean general intdligence, and
gave encouraging statistics in regard to
the work that is bdng done in college
today. Prof. Grandgent, the president
of the Harvard Chapter of Phi Beta
Kappa, and a charter member of the
Raddiffe Chapter, spoke of recent
FVench scenes as he had observed them
during a half-year's service as Exchange
Professor at the Sorbonne. Prof. Gulick,
another charter member, spoke on '*The
Greeks in America." Pres. Briggs gave
his hearers the pleasure of listening to a
delightful sketch which he once read to
the Harvard Chapter, ''Mr. Dooley's
account of a Harvard Faculty meeting."

Through the kindness of friends of the
College two redtals were given for Rad-
diffe students under the direction of Mr.
Arthur Whiting in John Knowies Paine
Hall, on Feb. 16 and March 29.
