MY LE S
Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
On the basis of somewhat extended
experience as an examiner, may I sug-
gest that Mr. Bollinger's letter on our
marking system (in your issue of Feb.
28) hardly goes to the root of the mat-
per. He forgets that mere quadrupling
of possible grades does nothing to al-
ter the conditions in relation to which
these grades are given. Before look-
ing at this, we may dismiss "such gen-
eral distrust as now exists." For, it
is counterbalanced by much satisfac-
tion which, by the way, has no need
to shout aloud! Moreover, no stu-
dent ever was, or ever can be, a com-
petent judge of marks in subjects
whereof, in the nature of the case, he
knows no more than the fringes. It is
to be recalled, too, that, as a simple
fact of comparison, American marking
systems are exceedingly lenient. The
conditions which they are compelled to
meet render this inevitable--and here
the real root of the difficulty lies.
In a word, our system tries to ad-
just itself to two entirely different cas-
es. On the one hand, it is a "pass"
system, Now, academically, a "pass"
mark implies little.--it never indicates
mastery or even unusual ability. It
may, and ought to, mean "decent" av-
erage work, or "respectable" ability.
As human beings. are, no matter where,
it cannot certify more. On the other
hand, our system is also a "class" sys-
tem: that is to say, it attempts to in-
dicate a certain mastery or some de-
cided ability. The point is that, here,
we quit the "pass" world completely,
and are confronted by totally different
standards. Some day, perhaps, we
may find it wise to separate "pass"
and "class" among undergraduates.
Till then, the difficulties traceable to
the double situation must be endured,
tempered by such justice as the long
experience of examiners may guaran-

MISS TARSNEY GIVES TALK ON
"WO1IEN IN NEWSPAPER WORK"
Miss Charlotte Tarsney, of the staff
of the Detroit Evening News, address-
ed the journalistic students of the uni-
versity 'yesterday afternoon on the
subject, "Women in New paper Work."
Miss Tarsney said that the notion
that women are useless in newspaper
work is fast disappearing. She brief-
ly covered the fields which open and
are preferable to women who wish to
make journalism their career.
is earned through greater strength; ability
to think quickly and act while thinking;
through the possession of muscular power,
prowess, and endurance that enable an athlete
to defeat his opponent.

I do not think that students realize
the enormous gaps that exist even be-
tween first rate men. In the Mathe-
matical Tripos of the University of
Cambridge, cases are not uncommon
where intervals of several thousand
points divide the "dominus" or first
candidate from the second, and this,
recollect, in the first class of honors.
And, when it comes to the contrast be-
tween a clear "first-class" and a mere
" pass-man," we are in touch with two
universes that happen to be wholly in-
comparable. To adjust the same
marking system to both cases is no
light task. Yet, this pis just what we
find ourselves compelled to do.
The point is, that examinations for
-demand a small modicum of dili-
gence to secure a "pass." So, too, do
the :British examinations for a "pass"
degree. But these marks certify to no
sort of competence. This is perfectly
understood in academic circles and
widely realized by the general public
on the other side. But our students
appear to imagine that a "pass" means
something. In "honors" or "class" ex-
aminations, on the other hand, thor-
ough mastery in the field, and real na-
tive ability are required in order to
obtain a "first" and, in a lesser meas-
ure,. a "second." The two standards
are absolutely different. As I have
said, we must combine them. Thus,
between the philosophical knowledge
and ability of the first "A" and the
first "B" just returned by me to the
Phi Beta Kappa committee, there is no
possible comparison. But, I am using
