The fear that election of courses
in December would result in an un-
usually large number of changes
of elections at the beginning of the
second semester turned out to be
largely unfounded, and the total
number of changes thus far this
semester has only slightly ex-
ceeded that of last semester.
Other Colleges Favor Plan.
Early classification, procedure as
instituted in several of the larg-
er universities in the United States,c
has proved distinctly successful, it{
was revealed by an investigation3
made before the decision was
reached to put in effect spring
classification for October courses.
According to the new plan, each
student who so desired will com-
pletely fill out his election card
and his class cards some time be-
fore commencement. These cards
will be compared with courses and
sections available, and if satisfac-
tory they will be accepted and
placed in an envelope bearing the
students name, to be held in the
I Registrar's office pending payment;
of fees next fall.!
When a student makes the pay-1
ment of his fees next fall, he will
simply have to hand in the proper
receipted coupon to the Director of
Classification. On receipt of this'
coupon showing fees have beenl
paid, the class cards previously fill-
ed out will immediately be released
and sent to the instructors chosen.
"Thus," said Professor Rich, "the
only line each student will have to
get into will be the one leading to.
