The applause with which he was greeted showed that the class fully appreciated the grcat interest which Prof. Knowlton takes in all things tending to benefit the department. Hespoke in great praise of the work of the ■ :;inniittee, and emphasized the fact, this was entirely an affair of the luw department. He counscled magnanimity. While the law students 'should be fïrst, they shotild not reserve so much for thonisdves as to exclude their guests, therefore it would be better to reserve one seat for each law student, than two, as had been talked of. He also advised them to meet Mr. Cleveland at the station and.escort him, in a body, to the residence of President Angelí. Also'to assemble at the law building ; on the afternoon of the 2 2tid and go in a body to University hall. These ' suggestions were well received and unanimously acted upon.
