Superior Students to Have Special
Study Privileges Out of
Closely resembling the system re-
cently innovated here, Leland Stan-
ford university, Palto Alto, Cal., be-
ginning next year will give especially
qualified junior and senior students
special privileges in the university, re-
leasing them altogether from class-
room attendance. They will be per-
mitted to map out program of study
leading to definite ends aid with the
advice of professors in the subjects
selected, follow these programs
through in any way they prefer. 1
The aim of the system is to make
college work sufficiently hard to give
exceptionally able students a chance'
to develop themselves, unimpeded by 1
classmates'of lesser calibre. At the
end of the courses difficult examina-
tions will be given, supplemented by
several mid-term examinations dur-l
ing the college year.-
Any student whose university rec-
ord is of "B" average or above, or
who is deemed by his school to be
specially qualified, may enroll undert
the independent study plan at the
beginning of the junior year or at the
beginning of any quarter thereafter.
The degree of credit for the period of
study shall be determined on the basis
of the final examination. Faculty
members will act as advisors to the5

tion taken last fall, following the ap-
pointment of a special committee 't'o

study plan was adopted.

Frosecution Claims Evolution Does
Not Go on Trial, Says Charge
is Breaking Law Only
(By Associated Press)
Dayton, Tenn., July 11.-With the
first preliminary steps made, includ-
ing the selection of a jury, counsel for
both defense and prosecution in the
Scopes evolution case today planned
conferences to consider-the next move,
No session of court was scheduled'
for today, the defense having asked
for a day to consider angles of its
The jury is composed of nine farm-
ers, one school teacher and farmer
combined, one fruit grower and one
shipping clerk. Only one is not a
church member.
With indications of a battle in the
offing the defense intended to de-
termine on what grounds they would
base their plea for admission into the
evidence the testimony of experts
along scientific and religious lines to
attempt to show that theory of evolu-
tion does not conflict with the Bibical
account of creation.
Prosecution attorneys, in the mean-
time, were drawing up their battle
lines to withstand the expected at-
Indications were that the defense
would attempt to have this testimony
introduced as a matter for the infor-
mation of the presidin judge, to be
dealt with afterward as he sees fit.
While it has been known for several
weeks that this probably would be the
basis of thei.r arguments for the sub-
mission of such evidence, they still
were seeking other grounds upon
which to base their contentions.
Prosecution attorneys, on the other
hand, consider the case one in which
only the question of whether John
Thomas Scopes taught that man de-
scended from a lower animal is in-
Basing their contentions upon this
view, they have announged their in-
tention of making a supreme effort to
prevent the trial from leaving the
purely legal course and trailing into
a religious and scientific controversy.
The only issue, Attorney General
Stewart said Friday night, is whether
Scopes taught that man descended
from a lower form of animal. Their
Vstand in the matter is not a change
of any previously announced course
of action..
The administration of the oath to
the jury Monday, followed by the
reading of the indictment and the
'arraignment of the defendant, will

for their first real clash in the trial.
