the University in the *specific, though
not general, methods by which they
hope to accomplish these ends. .
Under the St. Louis plan, honors
students will be assigned vacation
reading in the fields of concentra-
tion they have chosen. When they re-
turn to school the following scholas-
tic year, they will take a qualifying
examination, and, if successful, will
receive such privileges as not being
required to attend classes and lec-
tures. Each student will be assigned
a tutor with whom he will plan an
individual concentration program.
The courses he chooses may or may
or may not be given at the University,
and, in the event of the latter possi-
bility, will be entitely under the direc-
tion of his tutor.
The Rochester honors division, be-
sides being excused from class at-
tendance, will not be required to take

the other schools, work in close eo-
operation with tutors.
University Plan Outlined
Half of the work engaged in by stu-
dents accepted in the University's
honors plan is in regularly scheduled
courses, but the other half is done in-
dependently under the guidance of
tutors. Weekly conferences pertain-
ing to the extra-class study are held,
and tutors report this work as a regu-
lar course, filling in a grade for the
final accomplishment. The present
'package" system of examinations is
replaced by comprehensives, ad-
administered at the end of the senior
year in the field of concentration and
allied subjects.
All three schools place special em-
phasis on independent reading and
research under the guidance of the
tutorial advisers.
