The registration of students shows a * decrease of forty-six from last \ car's enrollment, the total number of students enrolled this year being one hundred ..nd fifty-three, of which number forty-seven are Seniors, forty four Middlers, fortyJuniors, and twenty Special and Graduate students. The catalogue will contain a detailed account of the different courses of study, prizes, and fellowships, and a sketch of the founding of the Seminary. The remainder of the catalogue will be taken up with the representation of students by states, collateral courses of study, the total of necessary expenses, etc. The recently organized Seminary Y. M. C A. will publish a handbook, which will contain the revised constitution of the Society, together with the officers and committees and references in the Mission Library and classes. J;i.r._j R.

The Reverend H. H. Wallace, Seminary '88, has presented a manuscript copy of the Pentateuch to the Seminary Library. Mr. Wallace procured this manuscript, of which only three copies are extant, while acting American consul at Jerusalem.
This week's issue of the Alumni Weekly, which will appear as usual on Saturday, will be an unusually large number and will contain at least one article of the greatest importance to all undergraduates. The article, which will occupy seven pages, is contributed by Professor A. G. Cameron and is a plea for the establishment of a University Cooperative Society. Professor Cameron speaks of the previous attempt to form such a society and then comments, at some length, on the advantages which the University will gain from such an institution. Its particular value, he says, lies in the fact that "it brings within the reach of increased numbers, advantages not possible without it." The article claims that the Society, by thus increasing the number of students, will also increase Princeton's power and influence, and concludes with a discussion of the possibilities which are in store for such an institution and the success which has attended the formation of such societies at Cornell, Yale and Harvard. The Weekly also contains an answer to the communication which appeared in last week's issue on the establishment of Greek letter societies in the University. This is followed by a discussion of the plan of renewing the extended trips of the Glee Club Organization during the Christmas holidays. The campus and alumni departments are both unusually full, the former containing a description of the improvements which are to be made in the campus during the coming year.

CHANGES IN MARQUAND CHAPEL.
Plans for the proposed changes in the Marquand Chapel choir loft have been submitted to Mr. Ernest T. Carter. The new choir stalls, to cost $800, are designed by Messrs. J. and R. Lamb and will be in ash of the same general finish and design as the large chairs in the apse. They are to be built in three semi-circular rows, the second tier rising above the first, and the third tier being between the columns of the apse. The organ key board will be moved to the centre of the platform, immediately behind the chairs provided for the clergy. This will put the organist in a correct position to face the members of the choir and will remove him far enough from the organ pipes to enable him to hear the choir and congregation. This change will cost $500. One subscription of $ 100 has already been received, leaving $1,200 still to be raised. It is hoped that the changes can be made during the vacation next summer.
