voices--the anvil chorus of disap-;
pointed aspirants andscircumspect
candidates. The question bruited
about is an old one, but at the same
time it attracts more and more at-
tention due to the great changes tAk-
ing place in collegiate circles with
each passing year. Institutions are
becoming more diversified in their
standards and requirements, and the
problem of a faini selection on a
scholarship basis becomes increasing-
ly difficult.
The sect which annually attracts
the most attention is that which claims.
that inevitably many of the candidates
for the honor selected the easiest
courses throughout their college ca-
reer, sacrificing the means to the end
in the most flagrant manner. Anyone
acquainted with the conditions must
know that this is possible, but recent
studies indicate that it is highly im-
prpbable. An investigation carried
on by the Princetonian discloses that
the greaten number of Phi Beta Kap-
pas distinguish themselves in some
other field while they are in college.
Bringing this point closer home, those
who are elected can usually be picked
by their acquaintances and classmates
before the actual choice, because ofj
their extraordinary and persistent
gaining of high grades in all of their
subjects. It is all very well to say
that acknowledged easy courses can
be picked by students for the sole
purpose of making Phi Beta Kappa,
but it is indeed an expert at this
a -t of indolence who can select four
or five of these twice yearly without
exhausting both his own ambition
and the University catalog.

THE STUDENTS' RECITAL

The general'impression. left by a
recital at the School of Music is one
usually of a series of very nice and
melodious notes strung together mere-

the book. If it had not been for Vir-

thought there was a cult there, wor-

TUTORS
With the instigation of the tutorial
system to take place next fall, the
Medical School will have accomplish-
ed what is probably the last of a group
of almost revolutionary reforms an-
nounced within the past 12 months.

lifted from a merely mechanical pro-
cedure to a personal basis, then the
comprehensive exarnination was an-

nounced as an innovation, and now
the last of the logical cycle of re-
form, the tutorial system, has been
inaugurated.
It is curious to note how, as the
American educational system adds age
to its enthusiasm, the most advancedt
theories closely approach the system
in use in the ancient colleges of Eng-
land. The tutorial system itself,<
though it represents an undeniable
forward step in the system of profes-t
sional education here, is almost as
old as education itself in the country
from which it emanates.
The'e are marks of distinction, nev-
ertheless, which mark the plan as in-
stigated here as distinct from its old
world ancestors. In the first place
the student will do his class-room
work as before, and only when he
desires to coordinate the work of dif-
ferent courses will he interview his
instructor or tutor. The plan here,
moreover, will be definitely linked with4
the apparent desire for personal con-
tact between students and instruc-
tors which has seized the Medical1
School administration-contact which i
is only possible, of course, in a pro-
fessional school of comparatively
small size.s
All in all the recent changes in the.
Medical School administration, takenI
together, constitute what is probably!
one of the most advanced programs
adopted by any school or college of
the University campus in recent years.
It means that students will have ad-
vanced from thein, old basis of me-
coanical absorbers for academic!
knowledge to professional associates
of the men whose experience and7
knowledge entitles them to teach. Itf
means that the personnel of the Medi-I
cal School student body will be of a.
high character individually, and it
means that medical graduates of the1
future may approach very closely the
ideal of professional training which;
