PEIPING, China, Oct. 3.-Mess-
ages reaching the British consul at
Foochow today said that Miss Edith
Nettleton and Miss Eleanor June
IHarrison, British missionaries who
were captured last July by Com-
munists at Chingan, northern Fun-
kien province, had been shot.
Their execution followed failure
of protracted negotiations for their
release, in the course of which the
bandits cut off one of Miss Nettle-.
ton's fingers and sent it to British
consular authorities as a dire re-
minder of their death threats if
ransom money of $100,000 was not
The two women, who were asso-
ciated with the Church Missionary
society, were traveling from Chun-
gan to Kienningfu when captured.
It was understood that the British
authorities here would await all
the details before taking any fur-
ther action.
Although the consular authori-
ties are attempting to verify the
dual killing there appears no rea-
son to doubt the truth of the re-
port. Only last week a letter was
received insisting that the women
would be killedrunless the ransom
moncy were forthcoming.

LONDON, Oct. 3.-The public
generally and missionary circles
particularly today w e re deeply
moved by advices that Chinese
Communist bandits had killed the
two British missionaries. Miss Edith
Nettleton and Miss Eleanor June
Harrison, in lieu of ransom for
their release.
Miss Nettleton worked in a car-
pet mill in her home town of Hali-
fax, Yorkshire, and was a Sunday
school teacher in St. Augustine's
church parish. She went out to
China for the church missionary
society in 103 and spent most of
her time at Chungan working a-
mong women and girls. She was
homo on furlough last year.
Miss Harrison was from Cook-.
ley, near Kidderminster. She was
63 years old and first went to
China for the Church Missionary
society in 1896. Three years ago
she returned home to live with her
mother, but last year upon her
mother s death she volunteeredto
return to China and work with
Miss Nettleton.
Rev. W. W. Cash, the society's
secretary, said that up until today
hopes were entertained for release
of the two and that today's mes-
sages of their death had come as
a great shock.

Most Faithful Fan
of Gridiron History
Will Return 'Today
Michigan's most faithful foot-
ball fan, Sid Millard, will return
to the stadium today to watch
the Spartans try once more for
a victory over the Wolverines.
Last Saturday, for the first
time in history, Sid missed see-
ing a Varsity football game
played on the home field. The
earliest record indicates t h a t
Michigan played itsfirst foot-
ball gane in the fall of 1?373
with Racine college, winning 7-2.
Millard was in attendance at
that game and had witnessed
every other home game for 52
years until last Saturday. A re-
cent illness prevented his at-
tending the double-header a-
gainst Denison and Ypsilanti.
Having recovered, he watched{
one of the practices this wee
and announced that he wouldC
see the kick-off this afternoon.
Besides having had perfect at-
tendance at all home games for
52 years, Sid has missed very'
few out-of-town stadia. He has
also officiated at Michigan track
meets ever since the first one
was held in 1893. Michi-a,

Shown in Article by Gauss, '
Dean of the College.
Lack of native intelligence and
motivation is set forth as one of the
principal causes for student failures
in an article, "Why Students Fail,"
by Christian Gauss, dean of the col-
lege, Princeton university, which
appears in a recent issue of the
Saturday Evening Post. In the opin-
ion of DeanJames B. Edmonson,of
the School of Education, this article
presents one of the best treatments
of the subject ever made.
Dean Gauss points out that out of
every four who enter, the university,
only one ever receives his sheep-
The fault in a good many cases
seems to lie in the admission re-
quirements of the university, since a
student who has done well in high
school is admitted on certificate, he
writes. He may, however, be fully
incompetent to go on. with college
work; he finds the grade too steep,
and at midyears, is dropped from
the university. Dean Gauss cites
the somewhat analogous case of the
student who had a drag in high
school, and has perhaps never been
submitted to an impersonal test.
Midyears will find this student's
name on the list of those dropped,
he says.
Two of the more outstanding
causes for failure, he continues, are
the lack of intelligence and the will
to work on the part of the student.

D e a n Gauss sets forth two main
conditions which ordinarily make
for success in college. "These are,"
he says, *'native intelligence, with-
out a certain minimum of which no
student can possibly succeed, and
willingness to work, without which
no student should be allowed to."
Another factor, fully as import-
ant, is outside interests. Dean C. W.
Mendell, of Yale, says, "I should
think that probably the chief fac-
tor, as I see it, is the placing of out-
side interests above the main col-
lege interests." Dean J. A. Bursley,
of Michigan says, "It seems to me
that the two principal reasons for
student failure are inadequate prep-
aration and either inability to grasp
what they are here for or a lack
of a feeling of responsibility."
Poor teaching, and as mentioned
before, admission requirements of
the university, are in a good many
cases at fault, but, Dean Gauss says
in closing, "The size of our distress-
army of failures is, however, suffi-
cient testimony that something here
is fundamentally wrong and that
we are confronted with a social
problem which not the college alone
but only a more enlightened public
opinion can solve."
