One of the Yale professors has been
making a study of the occupations of
Yale graduates by classes. He finds,
among other things, that a constantly
lessening number are entering the
' ministry, and a steadily increasing
number are studying law. The law
now claims more than twice as many
as any other profession. Next to it
comes finance. Less than one-twelfth
of the. graduates enter the ministry.
In spite of the fact that one of the
purposes for which Yale was founded
was "to train godly young men for the
Christian ministry." Hut, side by side
with these facts, it is also noted that
