Example Set by University 60.
Years Ago Is Now Being
Widely Followed.
Michigan was the first state to
initiate a successful system of ac-
crediting or approving high schools
so that the graduates of these
schools might enter the University
without the formality of examina-
tion. The example set by the Uni-,
versity 60 years ago is now being
widely followed throughout the;
country.
It was in 1871 that Henry Sim-;
mons Frieze, then temporary presi-
dent of the University, originated{
the idea of waiving examinations.
His object was- to raise the Ameri-
can high school to the standard of
the German "Gymnasiums" and the
college to the level of the foreign
university. In the year 1871 five
schools were accredited; this year
the list includes 603 Michigan high
schools.
Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Tulane, Ala-
bama, Washington and Lee, and
most of the other big southern
schools had easy times Saturday.
Virginia, however, was held by
little Randolph-Macon to a tie
which hurt. 'Texas ran up a large
score but Texas Christian did not
show up' as well. and just 'beat
Louisiana State 3 to j0
Many backs starred but amnong
those who showed well against real
opposition were Ross of Waynes-
burg, Thomas of Virginia, Clary of
S. Carolina, Lafer of Randolph-
Macon, Smith of Rochester, Gilbane
of Brown, Tuttle of Williams, Tos-
cani of St. Mary's, and Schlums of
Wesleyan.
Michigan State showed a fast,
smooth attack in vanquishing Alma

gridders have an exceptionally
strong team and may develop into,
a formidable aggregation for the
Wolverine game.

a committee from the University to
examine the individual students on
a list of questions. Later the idea
was amended to provide for exami-
nation of the schools rather than
the students. The five pioneer ac-
credited high schools were Adrian,
Ann Arbor, Detroit, Central, Flint'
Central, and Jackson.
The plan, it is said, has proved
most successful in bringing about
closer relations with the University.
That these relations needed to be
strengthened became apparent af-
ter 1837, when the University was
moved from Detroit to Ann Arbor.
At that time there were a number
of "branches" of the University
comparable to academies or high
schools, set up at various points
through the state. This plan proved'
too ambitious, and as the branches
went out of existence it was found
that most of the influx into the
University was from regular pre-
paratory schools in the statq.
Ii addition to the original quin'-
tet, the following schools have been
on the approved list for more than
fifty years: Coldwater, Grand Rap-
ids Central, Pontiac Central and
Ypsilanti, 58 years; Battle Creek
and Fenton, 55 years; Niles, 54
years; Saginaw, 52 years; Monroe
and Saginaw Arthur Hill, 51 years.

Fraternities, Sororities Again
Lead Independent Students
in Averages.
Women in the University main-
tained their scholastic superiority I
over men, with a general standing
of 78.5, 3.3 higher than that for
men. Sororities, however, were the
only group on campus that failed to
show any improvement in rating.
Fraternities and Sororities again
led the independent men and
women, the two bodies having aver-
ages of 76.7 and 75.8 respectively.
Itndependent men, with 74.6, had
the lowest average, although this
was an improvement of .4 over last
year's mark.
The highest standing attained by
any single group was 89.1, made by
the Stone league-house. Martha
Cook dormitory was second, with 83,
and Pi Beta Phi sorority was third,
with 82.7. Triangleengineering
