rolled and that an unusually stringent system of,
marking is being employed this year to rid the stu-'
dent body of its dead wood. Others are current
to the effect that scholarship standards are being
raised, that the number of "A's" and "B's" given
out vary in accord with the mythical 10-per-cent-
of-the-class theory.
But careful investigation substantiated by state-
ments from University authorities prove that these
rumors are all groundless. As compared to last
year with its war time laxity in grading, this year
follows the usual, rather than the unusual, method
of academic procedure. Emphatic denial is made
by those in authority of the suggestion that con-
certed action in stringent marking is being em-
ployed. What few cases of unusual severity in
dealing out grades may exist come voluntarily from
the individual professor and not as a result of any
move on the part of University heads.
Further inquiry shows that when the present
marking system was adopted in the spring of 192,
a norm approximating the various scholastic grades
was issued to professors. However, a study of past
records shows that not a single professor in a sin-
gle class in a single year ever struck the approxi-
'mation. It served as a generalization to he followed
rather than to be applied specifically to each class.
At present such a chart nis given only to new faculty
men unacquainted with the marking system, its
policy being merely to guide, not determine.
In adjusting oneself to a resumption of the pre-
war academic life after the maelstrom of S. A. T.
C. days, one is almost reminded of the reply which
the Irishman made when asked why the life of. a
'married man was longer, than that of a bchelor--
"It's not longer,.it only seems longer." There is
no harder marking'this year, it only seems'harder.
Many expressions of interest and approval have
been heard around the Normal, from both faculty
and students who were here last summer, ever since
the announcement was made that President M.
L. Burton, of the University of Minnesota, has ac-
cepted the call of the regents of Michigan to head
our great University. He aroused and stimulated
the whole summer school here, and no one can
doubt that his administration will 'be a strong one.

"Oh; please don't tell me you won't do this for,
me." A girl's voice, high pitched and trembling, ar-
rested my attention as I was passing through the
hallway. "I'm sorry," said a masculine voice very
firmly, "but I 'cannot do what you ask -of me." I
stopped short as I realized that here was being en-
acted grim, stark tragedy.
"But, professor, yot simply must do this for
me." Think of my aged parents if they should learn
from any other source than from my own lips the
story of my probable disgrace." But this monster
in human form seemed unmoved by this piteous ap-
peal. Impatiently he broke in, "What you ask is
absolutely impossible. Consider what it would mean
to me-to my position. Why it would probably
" mean my dismissal from the faculty."
When the girl spoke again her voice was rife
with bitterness and scorn. "I understand now. I

thought you were different but I see you are like
all inen. But some day a; just Heaven will avenge
"this terrible wrong you are doing an innocent girl."
Then the man's terse, harsh reply, "For the last
time I tell you I cannot give your final mark. They
will be mailed from the Registrar's office bn Sat-
urday." J.W. K.
