Several of the current reports of both the domestic and foreign sets have advanced in price during the ast. few years. This is true of mddern statutes of the several states, and the old scarce Session Laws and Statutes. Late editions of some text books now have several volumes over the original publication, tills condition reduces in proportion the purchasing power of the annual appropriation, and should be conÂ sidered in the next budget. I wish to again thaak the Members of the Law Faculty for their cordial sup ort and cooperation. Respectfully submitted,
