Seniors to Begin Selection
Next Semester Classes
on Tuesday.


Registrar to Issue Schedules
of Final Examinations
During Week.
Classification for the second
semester will begin on Tuesday
morning for seniors, Dec. 8 for jun-
iors, and Dec. 15 for sophomores,
Daniel L. Rich, director of classifi-
cation, stated yesterday. The same
system as was followed last year
at both the fail and spring classi-
fication periods will be used dur-
ing the coming period.
Exaination -chedu es forthe
first semester will be issued later
this week, Rich satel, and will be
available in the office of the regis-
trar, Room 4 University hall.
Seniors Begin Tuesday.
Seniors will begin classification
at 8 o'clock Tuesday morning and
will continue through Saturday. No
other classes will be allowed to
classify until aftr the date pre-
scribed for each group. Last year
more than 90 per cent of the 1.000
seniors in the literary college fin-
ished classification b e f o r e the
Christmas holidays and an even
greater number is anticipated this
In the spring classifications. an
innovation last year, more than
three-fourths of the literary college
students were scheduled before the
close of the second semester. This
decrease from the number of clas-
sifications recorded last December
fcr the second semester was due.
Rich said, to the fact that fewer
students were sure of what courses
they pan to follow after the sum-
mer vacation than between semes-
ters. Changes and revisions of
classification also accounted for
the decreased efficiency of the
spring pre-classification period.
To Classiy in Room 4.
Classification will be carried on
in the office of the registrar, Room
4, University hall instead of the
Waterman gymnasium as during
the first week of the present se-
mester. Early classification is urg-
ed by Director Rich because of the
availability of convenient class
hours during the first few days in
the scheduling of each group. Con-
flicts were less numerous last year
following the early classification
than in past years when schedules
were made out during the week be-
tween semesters.
Boards and cards for the classi-
fication operations were complete-
ly installed yesterday in the regis-
trar's office, while all changes in
class and course statistics have
been carefully checked and revised
Students are urged to use the cata-
logues issued to them during the

said today. An unofficial check
showed a decrease of about $97,-

Minor Sports Dropped.
Sports to be abandoned include
baseball, track, cross country, swim-
m i n g, water polo, gymnastics,
wrestling, tennis, golf, and fenc-
ing. Available funds, the athletic
director said, will be used in de-
velopment of intramural sports
competition in these sports. Bas-

log said.

Maintenance of minor sports de-
pends almost entirely upon foot-
ball receipts, Kellogg said, since all
of them have been a loss. It had

he believed "the Drys would fight to
