1000 EXPECTED THIS SUMMER
Yearly Attendance Is Increasing Nen
Courses Ate Offered.
Probably a thousand students will
enroll in the summer session this year,
according to present indications. The
summer school is being constantly
broadened and every year draws more
students. In 1902 the number enrolled
was 409, in 1912 it was 726 and for
1913 the slogan is 100 students.
The statistics show the value of ad
vertising. Before 1912, no systematic
advertising of the summer school was
done, except the sending out of the
summer-session bulletins. The high
est enrollment was reached in 1910,
when the number was 576. In 1911
the number fell to 491. In 1912 the
University began systematic advertis
ing of the courses offered In the sum
mer school and the enrollment jumped
from 491 of the previous year, to
This summer there will be three de
partments open, the rural teachers'
course, the short course for rural min
isters and the work for regular stu
dents. A summer course in engineer
ing will be offered this year for the
first time. The course in journalism
will be broadened. Summer work in
forestry will be offered at the camp in
the University forest in the Ozarks.
Special emphasis will be laid on the
work for the rural teachers. Courses
will be offered covering subjects in
which examinations will be given for
county and state certificates. Three
evenings a week, an informal story
hour will be held for women on the
campus of Read Hall, immediately aft
er supper. These meetings will give
an opportunity of becoming acquainted
and will assist teachers In acquiring
the ability to tell stories interesting
ly. The short course for ministers will
begin July 22 and last till August 7.
I The problems of the country minister

tional fame will speak. Among the
lecturers is Warren H. Wilson, su

Ralph T. Flnley, one of the coun
