to fit college men to hold positions of
trust and honor, and to render them
capable also of performing satisfac

States. Continuing, ho say.: "I may
say that every student in the course
will bo expected to obtain a thorough
knowledge of the history of commerce,
with its bearing on international law;
also the conditions of international
trade and banking and of the condi
tions of home products."
