In .commenting upon these figures
for; Tracy .ays: r
"In the flrstplacnit Is clear that the
chief growth is liMhe Mississippi Val
ley. Iowa leads, closoly followed by
Missouri, Indiana, Kansas, Illinois and
Chicago, with Dartmouth bobbing up
us third, and Pennsylvania as eighth.
Yet' in looking over that list of West-
em universities wo Jlnd that WlsconO
sin. Michigan. Minnesota and North
western are growing very little. The
heal explanation probably Is that 'they !
have had 'their growth," 1. e., they aro
already-large Institutions and made
their greatest advances some years
ago, and are now going along slowly.
Probably they hate pretty well filled
' their field and will grow -larger pnly
as the field grows larger. Other large
institutions, harvard, Yajo, Princeton,
Columbia and- Cornell aro not gain
ing or aVe losing. These are' all, East
ern colleges and-torthe very Inertia of
largo' numbers, Is" added their loca-
-r'tibn at one side of theTcenter of popu
lation, which is r surely: militating
against the old supremacy of tho East.
Tho preceptorial ss'stem at Princeton
has hot yet been successful, in attracting-
students and may have kept somo
away. Dartmouth's Isolated gain is
ulmost wholly due to 'ttie 'enthusiasm'
( of 4its alumni and the power of its big
president. There are ndt many,,great
.college 'presidents ' Just now. Dr.
'Tucker is one. ' ' -'

of course, Injured by tho earthquake,
but to a surprisingly small extent.
California (Berkeley) dropped from
3,104 In October, 19Q5, to 2,755 this
year. The professional departments
sufferod most heavily except that the
Institute of rt which had 1C5 stu
dents Inst year, Is temporarily discon
tinued. But California last year fell
back G por cent without an earthquake.
Leland .Stanford, which last year
gained two hundred students, or about
14 iper cent, this yea lost 85 students.
On the whole the California universi
ties In their power of recovery were
worthy of thclr'state and people
