Several changes have been made in the
entrance reulrements of the L'nlverslty of
Chicago for the benefit of co-operating
secondary schools. Greater recognition
will be given In the future to subjects
which have attained their full develop
ment in high schools In the last few years.
To the suhjtfcts which, for many years,
the university has accepted for entrance
credit from secondary schools there have
been added advanced arithmetic, one-half
unit, and commercial geography, one-half
unit. From the group of drawing, shop
and domestic science, two uniia may be
offered, though credit will be allowed for
them only on recommendation of the de
partmental examiners roncemed. Fur
ther, where formt rly the student might
offer one-half unit either In political econ
omy or In' civics, he may now offer one
half unit in each of these, and where for
mereiy be wa required' to offer one-half
unit of advanced algebra, he may now en

half unit, although in that case the sub
ject must bu taken In college.
