The reconstruction work as defin
by Major Berry has a twofold pu
pose: first, it is to assist in the ca
of the wounded or otherwise disabl
soldier, and secondly, it is to be
means of fitting him to better ho
down his old job after discharge,
any new job which he might wish
take up. The work, which is n
compulsory, in on way obligates a p
tient to remain in the service.
Major Berry in Charge of Work
Major Berry, who has been plac
in complete charge of the education
service at Fort Riley, entered the set
ice Nov. 26, 1917, and was placed

surgeon general's office at Washi

vas Elections Resunmed This Year
rk. According to the statement of the
the trustees in London, "The election of
jor Rhodes scholarships throughout the
United States will be resumed this
year. The postponed scholarships due
o to the various states for 1918 and 1919
will be filled next fall.
"It has been decided that the qual-
ifying examinations previously requir-
ed shall no longer be held and schol-
ars will be elected on the basis of
their collegiate or university record
supplemented, if necessary, by any
further tests that the committee of se-
lection may impose. There will be se-
lections in all states."
Prof. Willard T. Barbour, of the law
school, who himself was a Rhodes
scholar, stated that although the
Rhodes trustees remove qualifying ex-
aminations they can do nothing rela-
tive to the entrance requirements of
Oxford for undergraduates. Special
dispensatiopn is made, however, for
American students which allows them
to make up their Greek, a part of the
regular entrance requirements, there,
and take an examination on it at the
end of their first year.
Professor Barbour feels that this
new rule will broaden the field from
which candidates are picked. The
previous method for choosing the men
was to have all applying take a quali-
fying examination which was to be
given at the University. Those pass-
ing this came up for examination be-
fore' a board composed of the Presi-
dent of the University, the Dean of
the literary college, Chief Justice of
the state supreme court, and a repre-
sentative from one of the snaller state
schools for final choice.
