NW YORK CONFERENCE WILL
DRAFT PLAN TO CONTROL
FOREIGN STUDENTS
MAY TAKE EXAMS ABROAIJ
New System Aims To Prevent
Illegial Entrance Of
Aliens
Ira M. Smith, registrar of the
University, departed yesterday
afternoon for New York to - attend
a meetintg today of the committee
of the College Entrance Examina-
tion board, which will consider the
final draft of the plan whereby
foreign students planning 'to seek
admission to American universities
may be examined before leaving
theiri native lands.

Atetoday's meeting, the com-
which will ultimately be adopted
by the Board, and placed in opera-
tion, it s.is understood, next Feb-
ruary. Mr. Smith, before leaving,
expressed the belief that "prac-
titcally every accredited American
university will be exceedingly will-
ing to support the plan, which, it
Is hoped, twill prevent the embar-
rassment of refusing admission to
a foreign student who is either in-
competent or who has no legal
right to be in this country."
.This plan is being formulated by
the Board at the instigation of the
Department of State because of the
latter's inability to regulate "boot-
legging in education," that is, the
surreptitious entry of immigrant
students in violation of the Immi-
gration Act of 1924, by the issuance
of visas.
The committee of which 1Mir.
Smith is a member is at present
evolving a plan which will enable
foreign students to be examined in
their knowledge of the English lan-
guage. These tests will be held at
various centers throughout the
wvorld. Those students who com-
petently pass the examinations will
be granted admission cards for the
American university at which they
intend to study.
.This admission card will serve at
once as a visa for entrance into
the country and as a pass card for
entering the school.
U.Inasmuch as there are approxi- I
*mately 2,000 schools which are
accredited by the College Entrance
Examination board, it is believed
that undesirable students who fail-
ed to pass successfully the required I
examination will find little profit in
sceking to enter the country illegit-i
imately.
,HOLLYWOOD, Cal., Mar. 19-(UP).
Mabel Normand, screen star, is
critically ill in her home here,
fighting against infection of the
lungs, which threatens to take her
life. Her physicians gave her less
than an even chance to recover.
Tile lung trouble has sapped her
strength to such an extent that
she probably could not overcome
any sudden hemorrhage; it was
said. The actress, not in the best
of health for several years, was I
taken seriously ill shortly after
Christmas. Since that time she
has lost vitality slowly.
>Miss Normand's husband, Lcw I
Cody, has not been told of her crit-
ical; condition, as he himself is
suffering from a nervous break-;
down.
