Wlille registration figures will not bs available until early next Veek. It was said at the university yesterday that the enrollment Is likely to bs -very largo In ill departments. Columbia will start tho year with Im portant changes In curricula tuid 'admin istration. One of tho most significant of these Is the installation of psycholog ical tests now employed as un alternative method of admission! In Columbia College tho work of the new course In Contemporary Civilization will get under way. This course, like the psychological tests. Is a direct result of the war and constitutes a far reach Ins step In education. The aim of the couifc, it was said, yesterday, is "to Inform the student of the more out standing and Influential, factors of Ills physical and social environment. Tho chief features 6t the intellectual, eco nomic and political life of to-day are treated and considered In their depend ence and difference from the past. Another departure Is tho extension of compulsory physical education to sopho mores. Previously this had been con fined to freshmen. Bound up with' this extension of physical training is an elaborate plan to care for students, who jfion- conditions, of malnutrition, under weight or ill health from Improper food. The Commons, or university restaurant, will provide good food, properly balanced ir.d special diets, practically at cost. The university medical otllcer and his Haft will hold olllce hours dally for con sultation and treatment of students who teed their services. The chief object of the health service will be to develop a system of preventive medicine and lw time, a plan of supervision to keep tho student body well by early advice and prompt attention to small as well as larre matters. Anaembly Hour Effective. On the reopening of the fall term, plans for the university assembly hour will go into effect. For the first" time In the history of the university, one whole hour each week on Tuesday will be de voted to a common gathering of the unU vcrsity community. This.

It will bo a place at which class tratherintrs In un dergraduate form will be held, and at wnwn distinguished ien and women will speak'. Spanish has taken on a new dlglnty at the university and Is now on essentially the same basis as French and German, and l one of the modern languages pre scribed for Columbia College men. The Increased Interest In Spanish is ascribe to the growing Importance of our trade wun south America. 4 Still another new step taken by' the university Is tho establishment of home study -ourse-H under the auspices of tho Departmert of Extension Teaching. The' Preliminary announcement of home study courses issued yesterday shows that a lde range of Instruction -will be. given Jr. ag-lculture, astronomy, business, Eng lish fine arts, mathematics, philosophy, Psychology, French and Spanish.
