In order to widen the sphere of the University Extension work, and to increase its effectiveness ; and in order better to meet the needs of the many who find it impossible to become regular students at the University and are yet desirious of pursuing under competent direction courses of reading and private study similar in character to those offered at the University, - it is proposed to organize Extension Study Courses in any community in California that shall make application in accordance with the provisions of the following announcement:
I. COURSES.—The courses, so far as circumstances permit, will be similar in character to the regular college courses.
Single Term Courses are courses completed in a single college term.
II. CONDITIONS. Any one of the courses offered in this announcement will be organized in any community in California provided:
(1) That not less than twenty-five persons enroll themselves as members in the said course;
(2) That the said course has not previously been bespoken at other centers for the same term. *
MEMBERSHIP.-Any one interested in the subject of a course and willing to do the reading connected therewith is eligible to membership in that course.
The members are of two classes: corporate members and readers. Students desiring to enroll themselves as corporate members shall be required to satisfy the conductor of the course they propose to take, by means of written testimonials, or examinations, or both, that they are properly qualified to pursue the work in that course. They shall be required to take an examina. tion at the end of the course ; upon passing they shall be entitled to receive a certificate of record* therefor. All other members shall be classed as readers.
* NOTE.- Under ordinary circumstances it will be impossible for an instructor to conduct more than two Extension classes in the same term. Those first applying for a given course will first be provided for.
IV. Nature OF THE WORK.— The instructor in charge of a course will visit the community where it is given three times for a single term course, and six times for a double term course, remaining upon each visit a day, or longer if the number of students makes a longer stay necessary. Upon the first visit he will call the class together, and in an introductory lecture explain the nature of the course. He will then meet the members of the class individually, for consultation with regard to the reading and work especially adapted to their needs.
Upon his intermediate visit (or visits) he will meet the members of the class individually for consultation, in the forenoon and afternoon. In the evening he will meet the class collectively, lecture to them, and discuss with them the problems incidental to their work.
Upon his final visit he will agaiu meet the class for consultation ; will lecture to them, and in addition will conduct the examination of corporate members.
To each member will be furnished at a nominal price printed syllabi and bibliographies containing the information necessary to guide him in his work.
Written reports and theses may be called for from time to time from the corporate members.
FEES.-Each member will be charged a fee of five dollars for each single term course

The report published in the daily papers that there were sixty weddings at Honolulu due to the effect of moonlight nights on the steamer Thomas, is a base fabrication. There were only two freddings - one in a balloon, the other in a church.
The Supreme Court has rendered a decision, reversing the judgement of Judge Budd of the Sao Joaquin Superior Court, in the case of the Stockton School District versus E. B. Wright as County Superintendent of Schools. The decision sets at rest a question over which there has been much dispute, namely, whether the public school money could be legally apportioned for the average daily attendance in ninth grades and High Schools. The Supreme Court says that the money cannot be so paid. It is an important victory for County Super. intendent Wright and a question which is of great interest in educational affairs in general. The matier has been in the courts over three years District Attorney Ashley has ably represented Mr. Wright in the case.
