Gym suits, dancing costumes, or'

hearsals by everyone, according t
Miss Ione Johnson of the physical
education department, who will
coach the dances. In order to be
absent from a rehearsal, a fresh-
Sman must, be excused by either
tt Dorothy Felske, chairman of dan-
ces, or Josselyn McLean, chairman
of attendance. Though an ab-
sence may be excusable, if it is not'

Education has outgrown the
practice of grading student's work,
Dr. Henry C. Morrison of the Uni-
versity of Chicago -believes. The
chief objective of 93 per cent of the
pupils is to just "get by" with a C
on as little work as possible. Dr.
Morrison's plan is to replace grades
by allowing students to pass on to
higher studies as soon as one is
,,mastered, regardless of age, school,
classes, attainments in other
branches of instruction.
