(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

At a meeting of the Board of Governors of the Dropsie College for Hebrew and Cognate Learning, the President, Dr. Cyrus Adler, reported that the enrollment for the first term was 70; 42 taking the regular morning courses and 28 the extension course. In the morning courses there are 35 men and 7 women, and in the evening course 13 men and 15 women. Although not much more than twenty years old, the Dropsie College draws students from all over the world.

The Librarian reported the total number of books in the Library as 35,783. Lessing J. Rosenwald, one of the Governors, has provided a Fund for the increase of the section of Egyptology in the Library.

The first publication from the Rose Adler Fund, established by Max Adler, of Chicago being a work “The Arabic Commentary of Ali ben Suleiman the Karaite on the Boow of Genesis,” by Doctor Solomon L. Skoss, has been issued.
