Prof. Wenley Tells of Their Ad-
Each year a few Ain Arhor students
and professors leave their native shore
to engage in research or other work in
the larger foreign universities of Ger-
many, Scotland, France and England.
Other students from the various col-
leges of the country increase this
number to very goodly preportions.
The foreign coleges have during the
past ten years naiterially cheinged
their attitude toward outside students.
The following account of the relations
between American students and the
various foreign institutions of lear-
ing was kindly furnished a reporter
for the Daily by Professor Wenley.
'The degrees offered in the larger in-
stitutions abroad differ much in the
different countries. It is only in the
German and Scotch universities that
foreign students receive equal privil-
eges with the native scholars. n
Scotland the degrees of Ph. D., Sc. D.,
and L. D. are offered. The first named
degree is for pure philosophy only; the
second has a broader field and may be
obtained by students in psiology,
biology, mathematics, etc.; the L. D.
degree includes the dead, Romance
and modern languages. The American
student in Scotland enters into the
life of the University more than in
any other country; Edinburgh is their
favorite seat of learning. -
The foreign student in Germany is
treated with more deference even than
the German himself. The multiplicity
of degrees offered and the ease with
which one may be obtained detracts
greatly from their value. It is only
when one knows whether the degree
is first, second or third class that he
can form a true estimate of its value.
The English and American students at
the German universities are very
prone to group themselves and thus
lose much of the good that might be
obtained from association with Ger-
man college life. H. A. Sanders, who
fook his master's degree at the U. of
.., will receive his doctor's degree at
Munich this month; he will then im-
mediately return to this country to
accept a position in the Latin depart-
ment of the University of Minnesota.
Prof. Rolfe was at Munich for the last
two years helping Prof. Woelfflin on
a great Latin theosaurus; Prof. Emory
B. Lease is at present engaged in the
same work. The principal German
universities frequented by American
students are at Bonn, Berlin, Munich,
Leipsic, Strasbury and Jena.
In England only two degrees are of-
fered to foreign students, B. L. and B.
S. This is because of tradition which
still favors the educational hierarchy
of Great Britain, and makes it difficult
for even a native student to obtain a
doctor's degree. The two bachelor de-
grees open to students from abroad
have only been given during. the last
three years. -nstructor Abbott, a late
addition to the department of history
in this University, was, it is believed,

Michigan Alumnus Out Today.
The Michigan Alumnus for Novem-
ber is out today. This is the first num-
ber of the year and we note sose
changes in the editorial staff. L. A.
Pratt, '96, managing editor; M. M.
Hawxhurst, '98, business manager; .
N. Demmon, '68, necrologist; F. N.
Scott, '84, communications; D. R.
Stuart, '96, graduate club; Miss J. S.
Gregg, '98, and F. S. Simons, 198, as-
sistants, comprise the present staff.
The frontispiece is a very good half-
tone of Secretary Wade at work at his
desk, with a short sketch of his life.
The drain body of the magaine is
taken up with the proceedings of the
Collegiate Alumnae. The article on
the "Duty of Collegiate Alumnae" is
the annual address delivered at De-
troit by the president of the Collegiate
Alumnae, Miss Marion Talbot, dean of
the graduate department of the Uni-
versity of Chicago. A good idea is
the alumnus library consisting of
books by or about alumni of the iii-
versity. In the editorial column ap-
pears a cut of Secretary MAllaster,
of the Alumni Association. The col-
lege news of the month completes the

"They Can't See How They Can
"1 can't see how we can lose." This
was the answer given by Captain Har-
rison, of the Minnesota team, to a
Daily representative's question as to
what he thought of Minnesota's
chances of winning tomorrow's game.
The team passed through here on the
Michigan Central yesterday afternoon
at 4:58 o'clock. The Daily man met
them here and went as far as Tpsi-
lanti. Continuing, Mr. Harrison said,
"Our work of this week has been the
best of the year. Our men have work-
ed hard and the ginger put into their
playing has been noticeably on the in-
crease. I saw your game with Purdue
in Ann Arbor last Saturday and do
not consider it very strong. Ours of
this week was certainly stronger. We
will put up a game far superior to that
of the Wisconsin game, the men be-
ing all in perfect condition, and as I
said, we can't lose. If this raining and
snowing continues it is only a question
of how big a score we will make."
The Minnesota party consisted of 19
players, manager, Coach Jerrems, and
Trainer Moulton, at one time Michi-
gan's trainer. All expressed them-
selves confident of winning. The tea.n
left Minneapolis Wednesday night and
while considerably fatigued, said they
would be all right with the rest of to-
day. They wil line up this afternoon
against the D. A. C. team for signal
Men Who Go to Detroit.

The management also announces
that the second car of each train will
be reserved for ladies and escorts.

The Freshmen showed their super-
iority over the sophomores yesterday
afternoon at the Fair Grounds, the
score at the end standing 6 to 0. This
settles the tie score of a week ago.

and the High School team. The Fresh-
men and '98 will meet on Monday,
