If any benefit can be derived from
the suggestions given by the commit-
tee, its efforts are not to be depreci-
ated; but the fact that a former re-
port resembled his one in many de-
tails and that the general situation
has not improved would seem to bear
out the contrary.
PROF. FRED N. SCOTT
With the resignation of Prof. Fred
N. Scott, Michigan has lost another
scholar who carried her name to the
forefront of academic achievement.
Ill health made necessary the retire-I
ment of the man who has been a mem-
ber of the University staff for 43
years, and a mass of great and lofty
scholastic tradition will pass from the
University with Professor Scott.
The University of Michigan in 1884
was not the school that stands in Ann
Arbor today. At that time Michigan'
was just emerging to the front rank
of Amerfican universities, and one of
the principal reasons for that emerg-I
ence was the presence of such men as
Professor Scott. The, traditions of

scholarship and educational excel-
lence that have been built for Mich-
igan by these men is incalculable, and
the passing of any of them means an
inestimable loss to the University and
the cause of education.
In his career here Professor Scott
headed the department of English and
rhetoric for 26 years. His reputation
was not confined to, the sphere of
local accomplishment, however, and
national honors, such as the presi-
dency of the Modern Language Asso-
ciation of America were conferred
upon him. A number of text-books,
many of them standard works in their
fields, were produced in the course of
his long teaching career, and have
carried his name and the name of the
University to the far corners of the
Michigan appreciates the 43 years
of service which Professor Scott ren-
dered her. Michigan appreciates the
great life spent in her service, and
she is conscious of the glorious edu-
cational prestige which it is her re-
sponsibility to maintain.
One of the most encouraging phases
of the prodigious advances which
theoretical science has made in the
past few years is the promptness with
which it has been linked to practical
accomplishment. Scarcely is a new
device created, or a new method form-
ed, but what the industries affected
immediately set to work in a practical
application of the theory.
More and more the great industrial
organizations of the country arere-
alizing their dependence on this type
of effort, and one of the most en-
couraging of all recent developments
in the field is the newly announced
creation of a bureau of research by
the United States Steel corporation,
one of America's greatest industries.
A university professor is to be
transplanted to thenew field, receiv-
ing a salary probably ten times his
present one, and the' result will be!
large scale research for a great in-
dustry; adequately financed and call-
ing forth the best of the scientific
talent of the nation.
Equally encouraging . in the de-
velopment is the fact that it recog-
nizes the necessity of progress in
theoretical lines ' before pracitcal
achievement can result, and it offers
a handsome reward to the man work-
ing in the theoretical field. It will
allow investigation into fields not
immediately lucrative with the money
available from the productive sources,
and it promises to remunerate the
theoretical scientist on some basis
commensurate with his real value toj

In addition we have made up a few
recommtndations for the conduct of
examinations. These will, we believe,
raise the standard of work consider-
First, we believe students should
be allowed to use books during exami-
nations. This will be more like con-
ditions after graduation.
Secondly, more assistants should be
present to prevent cheating, and also1
to answer questions. The ability to
ask pertinent questions is a valuablej
asset. Lawyers especially should find
this to their advantage in examining

THE RACE OF ATLN1TA
Long, long ago, when Packards
were still being made with 12 cylin-
ders, there lived a boney little lass,
named Atlanta because she has been
born on the Pacific coast by her Uncle
William up at Michigan wrote that he
wouldn't be her godfather if they nam-
ed her Pacifia. She was such a little
deer. My, how she could run.
* *. *
Her mother had never liked men
very well, and besides she "had only
married Atlanta's papa on a bet. So
she decided that little Atlanta
shouldn't be allowed to associate with
musical circles of America.
Cesar Franck's "Piece Heroique"-a
mighty piece written by one of the
mightiest of composers-opened a
well selected program. Individuality
and vitality of thematic material
I characterized this rendition, which
was presented in the true spirit of the
selection. A sensitive loftiness and I
kindliness could be evidenced in the
masterly workmanship of the compo-
sition, which was intelligently empha-
sized by the organist.
The most successful piece of the
concert was Gilson's Prelude on an
ancient Flemish melody. A medieval
atmosphere dominated the theme into
a haunting effect of remote, distant
summonings from dead traditions.
This peculiar atmosphere continued
into climaxes of ancient callings,
dusty and time honored. Kinder's "In
Springtime" afforded the organist an
opportunitr to express the light, airy
mood of the day; and it seemed that
Palmer Christian had a successful
morning of golf, or perhaps no exams
to worry about, for he caught the
spirit of Spring quite well.
Two B'ach numbers proved exceed-
ingly enjoyable. Christian is ac-
knowledged by the majority of critics
as one of the greatest living inter-
preters of Bach. For he plays that
great composer as he should be play-
ed -wi th the keen interpretation sel-
dom heard in any concert hall. The
Fantasia and Fugue in C Minor was
typically Bach, running through many
intense chromatic passages until
finally developing into a glorious and,
brilliant climax that rumbled and
rolling forth in gigantic momentum.

marks and examinations system ha
accomplished very little when the im
mense amount of deail involved in th
survey is considered. The recommen
dationg made by the committee wer
principally (1) that a provision b
made in the budget to supply ma
terials and proctoring for the conduc
of examinations and that this be rais
ed from tuition if necessary; (2) tha
a uniform system of iarking be use
by all departments, and that if neces
sary the amount of work in certai.
departments be changed to suit thi,
need; and (3) that the use of the clasE
average and the normal curve be dis
continued in determining marks. Th
survey contained in addition perti
nent notice of the number of high
grades given in some courses as com
pared with others.
The number of department exami
nations, the only ones in which there
is a real need for proctoring, should
not be so great as to warrant an ad-
ditional fee. A certain amount o
watching has always been afforded
so far, and a certain amount of cheat-
ing has gone on. To definitely tax an
incoming student in order that he may
be watched over when he is taking
his examinations is not only unhar-
monious but out of order.
In regard to a uniform system of
marking, if any more could be done
to insure fairness in the credit given
in various courses, certainly that
action, would be welcome to both
faculty and students. Outside of a
general understanding as to the de-
gree of proficiency which is signified
by a C, for instance, it does not seem
that grades can be dictated more
severely without a destructive mech-
anism resulting. Such a process
would tend to remove whatever of the
personal element there is now to be
had in the courses.
