spring, if plans, brought forward at
the conference of Deans yesterday,
materialize. The exact nature of the
proposed convocation has not been de-
cided upon as yet. It is thought, how-
ever, that the names of those elected
to Phi Beta Kappa, Sigma Xi, and
other honorary scholastic societies,
will be read.
The University has never held such
a convocation, although the matter
has been considered twice in previous
years. It is understood that several
other Universities throughout the
country have similar means of honor-
ing scholastic excellence.
Deans to Handle
It was also decided in the meeting
that hereafter the administration of
scholarships should be in the hands
of the deans of the several depart-
meats. It is planned, in tie future, to
state more clearly in the University
catalogue the qualifications necessary
to application for them, and the rules
governing their administration.

to pass buckets in the stands between
