About C3S students were rrgistered
in the state normal school at the
opening; that is, in the normal school
proper, not including the training

j OT e third day that the state normal
school has ever had. The number of

more students and teachers than class
room and it sometimes becomes .a
I problem to find ruarters. In the fac-

there are several new faces. The dor
