The total increase in enrollment from the first of June to the last cf September, is twenty-six per cent over the same period for 1908, being now 293. The Normal dining hall has solved the question of cheaper table beard. The first week of the fall term meals were two dollars and seventy five cents a week; the second and third weeks two sixty-five. Meals are given here at actual cost to the students.
