All students expecting to enter the
New York Times Current Events Con-
test are asked to hand in their
names by tomorrow to Prof. Everett S.
Brown, of the political science de-
partrent and chairman of the local
committee for the contest, in Room
2032 Angell hall, or to Miss Burch-
ield in Room 2033 A. II.
The contest this year is the third
annual one to be held under the
supervision- of the New York Times
and is open to any resident under-
graduate of the University who has
not completed four years of college
work since graduation.' from his
preparatory school. The contest will
The held on the afternoon of April
20, and the period of events to be
covered, date from May 1, 1927, until
the date of the contest.
Several imnortant changes in the
rules covering the contest this year
have been made . In an effort to en-
courage more students to pArticipate
in the' contest, it was decided th'at
the local prize of $250 be divided
into three smaller prizes of $150,
$75, and $25. This was done in hopes
that more students might enter the
contest and to give the students a
better opportunity of %inning one
of the prizes.
The second prize of $75 will be
awarded to the sophomore or fresh-
man making the highest score, as
last year one-third of the entrants
here were underclassmen. Only the
first prize winner at each of the 20
competing universities .is disqualified'
from future competition for the
prizes, as under the new arrange-1
ment which was suggested this year,
the second and third prize winners
will not be eliminated in the future.
Another important change was
made by eliminating the 'second
examination which had been given in
the past to the winners at each of
the competing colleges and univer-
sities. The questions for the local
contests were formerly set by each
of .the local committees but this year
' an Executive Committee of the coun-
cil'will set the examination the same
for all the schools. The best paper
ii each institution will be forwarded
to this committee which will then
make the final award, the grand
prize of $500.
The time of the examination has
been changed this year to a three-
hour period. In 1926, the first year
of the contest, a four-hour period
was appointed while in 1927, five
hours was granted for the writing of
the examination. These experiments
were not found to be satisfactory,
and it is hoped that this shorter
period will be better.
Copies of the examination. which
was given last year may be obtained
from Professor Brown or any other
member of the committee which con-
sists of Prof. Preston W. Slosson, of
the history department, Prof. John
L. Brumm, of the journalism de-
partment, Prof. John V. Van
Sickle, of the economics department,
and Prof. Waldo M. Abbot, of the
rhetoric department.

American college students begin
active life work entirely too late, be-
lieves President A. Lawrence Lowell.,
of Harvard university. "American
secondary schools," he declared in his1
annual report to the Harvard board ofi
overseers, "do not complete thec
secondary teching that ought to be{
done at the age our young men come1
to college. The result is that with
the longer preparation now required
for professional and business life, the
young -man does not being his active,
career until a later age than is wise. J
"An artisan at the .age of 20 may

be earning as large an income and be
as well able to support a family as he
ever will be, but his contemporary
who is looking forward to the bar or
to medicine, is only half way through
college at the time. The ordinary age
of entering an American college is
over 18, so that if the young man com-
pletes his four years before begin-
ning his professional studies, he is
over 22 at graduation."
President Lowell does not believe
that sending a boy to .college at the
age of 17 places him at a disad-
vantage socially or athletically.
