The' winter' term at the- Normal .closes-. Fricfey.' Students-will go. to their various-'homes and enjoy a vacation between the end of the winter term and the- spring term will "begin a week from tJhe following Tuesday after the -winter term closes. Indications from the correspondence received 1 at the Normal from farmer students -and prospective new students in Southern Illinois, the spring tei-m will 'be larger than last year, Officials at the school state fhe amount of correspondence inquiring about the spring -term and other features in. connection with their attendance ,at the school as .one of the b.esf methods of getting some sort "of an idea w'hat the attendance will be. •* Nex.f Friday sees the end of a successful term at the Normal. The attendance has been satisfactory for the winter term. Resulas are toeing- felt in the arrangements of the/ course^ and .other features at the' school -which- have (been put in effect this term'. No radical changes: have been ma-de, only adjustments from time to time Which: lend to 'IJfie efficiency of the operation of the school, those which enable the students to gpt- the best Tesults.<c£or their timo spent. •Witth the (beginning of the spring term many students are expected who, were -unalbie to attend the. winter. Also after the first half of the spring, term 'has passed -the raid- spring term, will open. This will bring- a large number . of teadiers whose schools .were not\ out in time to get in school at the (beginning 'of the spring term. The. mid-spring 'term has -been arrar/ge-d to take care of'students of-this/ type. This is also"'the' reason for the week's vacation between the winter and spring term,MVhich did'not formerly exist. The Aurora .Boreaiis, or the northern lights appeared Monday night and -were wisJble between 8:30 .and 9 o'clock. The phenomena, presented a spectacle of what seemed to 6e light rays, shooting toward the Heavens from the northern horizon. The first appearance of the lights were seen in the northeast. Then after a few minutes they swur.g more to the north wrtJh fluctuating visibility, although not as beautiful as in the late :fall and winter. The northern lights on clear winter evenings offer one of nature's , rarest and most inspiring spectacles. WAS FINED FOR DISTURBING?
