ENROLLMENT AT HOWARD
EXPECTED TO BE LARGEST
It is wisely said, that a strictly lion
cst man who desires purely the public
good who will not criminally flatter
the people, not take part in lics.-or
party slander, nor decend to the arts
of the rat the weasel and the fox,
cannot succeed in politics. If the
foregoing were true there would be
no success in government. We know
what the popular opinion is. Gov
ernor Small and Mayor Thompson are
real strong men who arc honest, and
who will not stoop to the art of the
rat, the weasel and the fox, but say;
we do know a lot of politicians who
are crawling through the sewers of
polluted statesmanship who when the
governor gets through with them they
will be a-"very sorry lot.

Education, Commerce and Finance;
its School of Applied Science, with
courses in Advanced Engineering and
Architecture, Agriculture, and Home
Economics; its Class "A" School of
Xfcdicine, with courses in .Medicine,
Dcntristry. and Pharmacy; and its
School of Law, is preparing to re
ceive its new contingent orstudents.
During the summer A-acation ex
tensive repairs and improvements
have been made to the grounds and
buildipgs, including the installation
of new lighting arrangements for the
classrooms', drinking fountains in the
various buildings, and other changes
tending to add to the comfort of the
students and to freshen the buildings
of the University. 'Quite a number of
