Registrar Hall Explains New "E" Rul-
ings Will Not Taike Effect
Until February, 195
Graduation requirements for the
literary college were made mere
stringent yesterday when the faculty
of that college decided at their month-
ly meeting that "the marking system
be amended that each hour of E grade
shall give no credit and a negative
point." By this is meant that an honor
point shall be taken away for each E
grade received.
Included in this special order which
was passed by the faculty group was
the statement that "it is understood
that E grades shall include lapsed in-
completes and absences from examin-
ation as well as courses dropped with-
out legal permission."
Another special order was passed
to the effect that "students whose
work is notably unsatisfactory be
asked to withdraw without preliminary
warning." Registrar Arthur G. Hall'
when questioned concerning the. signi-'
ficance of this action explained that in
the past the students whose work has
been unsatisfactory must have re-
ceived warnings or been placed on
probation before being asked to with-
draw from the University, and with
the new rule persons who have poor
scholarship records will not necessar-
ily have to receive these preliminary
warnings before they are asked to
withdraw. This rule will go into ef-

before Swing Out, May 6. No
one wants to 1te left out of the
Swing Out, but unless your or-
der is placed now, your gown
will not be delivered in time.

Dr. Hall pointed out that this rule
is intended to reach those students whoI
make almnost total failures and whoI
perhaps before have escaped being
wartwed, or put on probation. "When
students are admitted to the Univer-
sity, there shall- be printed on their
admission certificates the statement
that if their work is notably unsatis-
factory they -may be asked to leave'
without preliminary warning," said1
Dr. Hall. "In this way they will be
informed of the new system on en-
trance to the University."
In commenting upon the new rule
with regard to grades of E, Dr. Hall?
said that as before an hour of A will
count three honor points, B two honor
points, C one point, D none, and with
the new system an honor point will
be substfacted 'with each hour of
E. This rule will go into effect in l
February, 1925.
Last December a rule was passed to'
the effect that the same number of
honor points as hours shall be re-
quired to graduate and it is thought1
that with these two changes in the
marking system the requirements to
graduate will be more strict.
