Twenty-Three Students Pull H
and S Cards for Last
Scholarship Tradition Reversed
When Melzer Received
Twenty-three pangons of scholastic
brilliancy pulled all "H” and “S" cards
for last semester’s worl. and four others
spoiled a like record with one "M” grad '.
In some cases those receiving an "M"
in one course made as many hours “8”
and “II” as those who made all “S ’
and “all-II”. This will no. prevent them
from highest-scholarship honors in their
senior year though, provided for every
hour below “M" they will have three
hours of "II”. There are 24 students i
listed in the registrar's office to date
who are trying for honors in one school
or department, but only eight are try: p:
for general scholarship honors. There
is a possibility of core being added to
this list later on.
The men reversed the tradition of wo
men first in scholarship when Fred Mel
zer walked away with the first prize <f
an “all-11” card, while iu the law school
where they make the men carry around
ponderous volumes and an “S" is consid
ered a suprr-II, Frank Farrell and C. C.
Clark drew “nll-S” cards.
But here is how the students stacked

BAND MAY BE INDEPENDENT
Under Present System Organization Can
not Accept Outside Invitations.
There is a movement on foot on the
campus to make the University hand a
separate organization, wholly independ
ent of the University school of music.
It is the indirect result of the hand's :n
ahility to accept invitations to fill en
gagements at. the Oaks in Portland and
at Yellowstone Park thi i summer.
Under the present plan, the hand is
not permitted to accept outside invita
tions in its own name because of the de
pendence on the music school as a
Because they believe a separate organ
isation would do away with cmtention

matter up to the student council. Com
