BUSINESS MEN TO STUDY LAW.
   A business men's class in law is to
 be a feature of the work offered this
 winter by the law school of the univer-
 sity. A large number of business men
 whose business activities call for a wider
 knowledge of law than is possessed by
 the average business man, have asked for
 instruction. As a result 1?rof. S. W.
 Gilman has arranged to meet a class in
 practical business law one evening each
 week.
    BEST TRANING FOR PULPIT.
    The University of Wisconsin with three
 other state universities-those of Penn-
 sylvania, Michigan  and   California-is
 declared to be the best place to secure
training for. students planning to enter
the ministry, by William H. Matlock, of
Whittier college, California, in the cur-
rent number of The Educational Re-
view.
  "The Universities of Pennsylvania, of
Wisconsin, of Michigan, and of Califor-
nia," Mr. Whitlock writes, "have an in-
finitely better right to graduate clergy-
men with full professional training than
very many denominational colleges that
do confer the degree of Bachelor of Di-
vinity. It is only necessary to compare
catalogs, courses, equipments and   the
men in charge, to see that young men en-
tering the ministry might have a train-
ing superior in every way to the training
too many of them actualy get, along with
all the other advantages that go natur-
ally with residence in such an environ-
ment.''
   POULTRY COURSES POPULAR.
   The students enrolled in the poultry
 husbandry courses at the College of Ag-
 riculture this year number 136. The
 course in  elementary  poultry  raising,
 which deals with designing and construc-
 tion of poultry houses and yards, fatten-
