The University Chronicle, speaking of the calendar, says : " As a model of typograpbical neatness and accuracy, it is a credit to the Courier office." Sucb pleasant words are glad lyrecei ved by the "boys." They all like a Hule encouragement when they do things wcll. The Jackson Citizen in an extended notice of the university calendar, pays this office a very neat compliment'. "ItUUsued from the presses of the Ann Arbor Courieb offiee, and reflects credit upon Mr. Bcal and his employés as a work of typographical excellence and correctness. " Very many people may thlnk that students ouislüe oí ttie Btate al the unlverslty pay tultion. Tiiis U nut Ho- they gel It free.

Tbero are students from :)7 states and terrltorlex and seven foreign ooon tries. More tlmn half the stiultintH are from outslde the state.- [Allegan Tribune. The Tribune is mistaken to a considerable extent, as it will see by examiniog the catalogue. Non-residents have to pay a matricularon fee of $25, and an annual fee of $25, while $10 has to be paid as a graduation fee, which makes, according to our arithmetic, $135 for a non-resident student for the full college course in the literary department. In the law and medical departments the fees have for some time nearly, if notuite, paid the running expenses - the DOD-residenta paying by far the greater proportion. We think, ourself, that it would be wisdom on the part of our law makers to increase the fees for non-residents in several of the departments, so that the tuition would at least oover the running expenses. Such aoourae would seem but just to our own taxpayers. Such assertions as the Tribune makes, evidently innocent enough, come from the great stress some people lay upon our ree educational system, and tend to injure our university.
