LARGE ATTENDANCE AT THE
OBERLIN BUSINESS COLLEGE
The . Fall Term of the Oberlin Busi-
! ness College has opened with a large
increase in attendance over last year;
in lact uie largest attenaance ior
many years. This is all the more re
markable since colleges all over tne
country are having a decrease in at
tendance because of the war condi-
tions and this indicates something of
the great reputation this school has
gained for sending out well trained
bookkeepers, stenographers, secretar
ies and teachers.
