Diffetcnt Courses Plano ed
F'irst Four Years of


Cozlrpreiensive Examination to
Permit Commencement as
Ability Affords.
Action taken Wednesday by the
f~cuIty, adac trustees at the Uni-
versity of Chicago yesterday was
sein ,. one of the most radical
experihmnts ever recorded in edu-
cation and teaching.
Plans for the creation of a newI
type of college are being formu-
lated by which the student will be!
able to graduate w;henever he can
pass a comprehensive examination.
It .will replace the present system
at Chicago which resembles in,
many respects the fixed and formal'
~lucational system in operation at
Left to Student.
Under the new plan, a genius
Inay get through in two months, 1
a brilliant student in a year, and
the one who enjoys the social side
cif college life may loaf along for.
biir years. Then there is a passing
and weeding, but no degree. The
atuden Le upon whom the university
t ifls it worth while to spend more
ti me and money will then go on in
special courses, b)ut still with no
tfhiae hmiitatwos, where they will
b~e given degrees.
'the present- graduate school is
to' go and in place of this and the
present undergraduate courses, the
anon-pro fessionali training will be
'divided into live main sections,
each with a dean. These are the
social sciences division, the biolo-
daol ciences division, the humani-
ties division, and the college.
Change l'uwdget system.
In the upper divisions the stud-
ent will be graduated by passing an
examination whenever he is able.
The i-onrrrofessional degrees will be
awarded here, incl-adin~g the equiv-
alent of the 8.1 degree, now grant-
ed at the end of four year's work.I
The professional schools will award
all professional degrees. The bache-
lbr's, master's and doctor's degrees
'are to be granted on the recoin-
fiendation of the entire division'
and not one department.
Qrie of the important changes
introduced will be in the budgeting
system. Div<ilonal rather than de-
partinental autonomy will mean
thre encouragement of undergrad-
uate teacbing. The job of the col-
loge will be that of teaching and
its funds will be devoted to that
-~S Increased Demand Requires
S upply of Rawa Material.
More paper is used today in the
prin ting of one daily edition of a
large newspaper than was manu-
facturod in the United States in a
whlerl year, 75 years ago, stated
D~o ialcl W. McCready, of the chem-
Ical engineering department, yes-
Jierday from the University broad-
casting studio.
Large quantities of paper are
used to serve us in many other
ways, he said, illustrating with
paper money, wrapping paper,
paper bags, paper boxes, wallpaper,
and a host of others.
He pointed out that this increas-
inhg demand for paper required
large supplies of cheap raw mater-
ial in the form of pulp suitable for
paper manufacturers. The rag sup-
'ply, used in the manufacture of
paper, was limited and the paper
manufacturers pleaded with the
public to save every thread. This
scarcity of rags lead to the trial
use of grasses and also a large
number of impossible substances
suchV as cabbaaes, cucumbers, pine-

a~pples, and even garbage, he said.
