COMMITTEE SUBITST1
SCHOLARSHIP iNDING'
TO FRATER ID' BOOY~
REPORTS OBTAINED FROM ALL
SCHOL SN tANAA AND)
UNIT El)STATES
RESULTS ARE COMPARED
ChaIrman Believes Fraternities To Be
Of Serious Rather. Than
Social Intent
Reports of a recent survey concern-!
ing the scholarship of fraternities in
all institutions in the United States
and Canada have been submitted to
the executive committee of the Inter-!
fraternity Conference, according to
announcement.
The committee, which compiled the
records, found 118 institutions with
five or more fraternities; but the re-
ports from them were difficult to
tabulate because of the great variety
of marking systems. Therefore, the
committee found it virtually impossi-
ble to interpret the material it re-
ceived, but %a harmonizing of the re-
suits were attempted so as to make
the comparisons fundamentally fair.
"I do not believe that many fa-
ternifies are interested in scholarship
as a mere academic performance,"
declared A. E. Duerr, chairman of the
committee, "but they do care for
straight-thinking," he continued, "and
are in theory high-minded and serious-
purposed; they are not merely aggre-
gations of congenial and socially-
minded men, nor are their ideals
purely social." Mr. Duerr expressed
the opinion that there is considerable
antagonism to fraternities in certain
political and college centers; and the
only possible means of removing such
antagonism is by making fraternity
men, more than any other group,
stand for something a bit nearer to
the legitimate purposes of a college
education, as viewed by men who
evaluate such training from every pos-
sible angle.
Prof. . M. Stewart of the Univer-
sity of Missouri, one of the members
of the committee on scholarship made
tile following suggestions for the rais-
ig "of scholarship: Let fraternities
publish annually the scholastic stand-
ng of their chapters; let every fra-
ternity have an active officer in charge
of its scholarship campaign; require
reports on failures; penalize tbwse
chapters that are consistently low in
r eholarship; defer initiation of men
whose scholarship is not satisfactory;
,ive special attention to the training
o£ freshmen; build up a belief that
oo0d scholarship pays
Cut Ten Million Fir
Trees For Yuletide
(By Associated Press)
WASHINGTON, Dec. 14-Carrying
Valetide cheer with their twinkling
lights, about 10,000,000 Christmas
I reps will find their way into American:
homes this year. The Christmas tree
bill will be about $5,000,000 for the
crowing of the trees is now an in-
dustry.
"Cut your Christmas trees Proper-
ly for conservation is wise," says thel
American Tree association. This
when done properly means a thin-
ning which the forest needs. Properly
gathered for the market these trees
do not represent a drain upon our
forest resources."
The Nature association agrees with
Prof. Woodbridge Metcalf of the
School of Forestry of the University
of California, who says:
"Because of the wastage an an ex-
aggerated notion of the influence of
Christmas tree cutting on the future

well intentioned but misguided in-
(dividuals have, in recent years urged
that the cutting of Christmas trees be
prohibited by law or at least frowned
upon- by rorward looking citizens. f

TRANSLATIONS OF HOLY WRIT ARE
ON EXHIBITION IN LIBRARY LOBBY'

Depicting the development of the
translations of the Holy Writ, par-
ticularly in England, many genuine,
as well as reproductions of editions of
the Bible are on exhibition in the main{
lobby of the Library. The exhibit is
held at the request of Dr. E. J. Good-
speed of the University of Chicago,
who is lecturing this semester at ther
Michigan School of Religion. The col-
lection not only consists of books of
the Bible, but also of facsimiles of
ancient Greek and Hebrew manu-
scripts and papyrus from which the
original translations were made.
Among the more interesting of these
facsimile manuscripts may be men-
tioned the "Codex Alexandrinus,"
which was presented in 1628 to the

Rheihas New Testament; the first con-

plete Latin Bible printed in England,
(loaned by Regent Junius E. Beal) the
New Testament of which had been
printed by Thomas Vautralhier, who
had employed Shakespeare in his
press; and several editions of the
Geneva or "Breeches" Bible.
Private translations of the Bible of
the modern era are grouped together,
the more t noted of which are, the
Bible of Noah Webster, of dictionary
fame.
GENEVA.-German and Italian jur-
ists here put the final touches on the
draft of a treaty of arbitration be-
tween Italy and Germany.
