(From the New York Tribune)
The'idea of abolishing examinations
at Columbia university and possibly
of making attendance at classes vol-
untary is a right honorable plan. The I
faculty, pursuant to the student vote,
is to consider whether or not when
the responsibility of seizing, an educa-
tion is laid upon the students, if they y
are the right sort of boys, they will
take it rather than leave it. The Co-
lumbia undergraduatesare not averse
to giving perfect freedom of action to
their will to work. They have the
high-minded notion that if they are not
harassed by tests and drill-sergeant
discipline they will rise more nobly
to their opportunities than they have
done in the past.I
In the English universities the court-
eous habit obtains of inviting students
to lectures and the like if they care to
attend. If they do do not, very well, but
examinations provide a day of reckon-
ing. A #mall army of tutors labors
valiantly and profitably at the eleventh
hour to save the loafers from untoward
fate. In American colleges the indul-
gence of a few cuts from recitations is
granted, but study is successfully
evaded by many who attend classes,
and for them examinations mean hero-
ic "cramming." The temptation to
cheat is not always resisted.
But consider the most successful de-
partment of college training, that of
football. The members'}of the squad

who became a habitual absentee would
only suffer from his own laxity.,
The endless red tape of finals could
be cut down to nothing and so many
more days given to the actual diffusion
of knowledge from the professor'sI
