With the organization of the Law

Judging from the number of "A"
and "B" marks given by professors in
1925-1926 compared with those given
in 1912-1913, the relative chance of a
student's obtaining a high mark is
rapidly diminishing, according to fig-
ures shown yesterday by University
authorities. The figures were com-
piled for the literary college only.
Of courses given in 1912 and 1926,
23 were selected at random for a basis
of comparison. Of these 23 represen-
tative courses, there has been an aver-
age decrease in 16 courses, in the
number of "A" marks given, of four
and one-half per cent. In but five
courses has there been any increase
in the number of "A" marks, two
courses awarding about the same
marks last year as in 1912. In 14
courses the number of "B" marks
given was six per cent less last year
than in 1912. And in practically
every course of the representative
23 the number of "C" marks given out
was higher last year than in 1912.
The five courses of the 23 in which
any increase in the number of "A"
marks given out was noted were those
in French, Spanish, fine arts, biology,,
and German. The grades of the
rhetoric and mathematics depart-
ments were practically the same last!
year as in 1912.I
As a whole, courses showed generali
decreases in the number of "A" and
"B" grades given, and slight increases
in the number of "C" marks.
