57 Colleges Follow Practice
of Belcw Passing Mark.
A study of the catalogs of 57 institu- j
tions of collegiate rank to determine j
their practice in awarding grades below |
passing shows that .‘17 follow the Oregon j
practice of awarding a grade of comli- i
tion, according to a report compiled by
Hiss Grace Edgington. assistant profes
sor of rhetoric.
The investigation was made in connec
tion with a controversy which is now go- j
ing on in the faculty as to the merits and j
justice of awarding more than two grades
between V and failure. All rightful cases
are amply cared for by the grades of in
complete and withdrawn, in the opinion
of some of the instructors, and any >
other gAides are considered illogical and j
In nearly all of the 37 institutions
which award a grade of condition it is the
common practice to hedge the grade in
one of four ways: the mark following the
re-examination must be considerably
higher than passing to bo counted at all;
a fee must he paid for the privilege of
re-examination; only the lowest passing
grade is given even if the paper writter
warrants more; or credit points are sub
tracted from the number already earned.
Ten of the institutions have no grade
below passing listed in their catalogs.
Twenty-five of the 57 have three grades
below passing and it appears that 18 have
two such grades. The incomplete is
commonly the one missing with those
which have hut two mark's.
The four grades found in the survey
were condition, failure, incomplete, and
absence. Marks for absence arc given
for absence from examination or exces
sive. absence in recitation periods in the
case of a few institutions.
Mo definite movement is on foot in the
faculty to abolish the grade of condition
and the investigation was made for the
purpose of obtaining general information
on the subject.

PRAISE LITERARY WORK
Mable Holmes Parsons nn.l Edison Mar
shall Attract Press Comment.
Oregon faculty and students arc well
represented in the literary world this
year. Mrs. Malde Holmes l'arsons, a
member of the faculty doing work with
the extension division in Portland, has
had printed l,y the Stratford Publishing
company, a hook of poems. "Pastels and
Silhouettes, ' The Portland Spectator
remarks in its issue of .lanttary Sth that
"Mis. Parsons is winning recognition in
the east. She lias long been known in
this part of the country for her clever,
imaginative writings, stories, one-act
plays, and verse.”
Ldjson Marshall ,a student here u few
.wars ago, and member of the India Tail
Pelta fraternity, is ulso helping making
Oregon famous. His latest novel, "The
Strength ot the Piuesj" is a thrilling
story of the iviid mountain life iu Oregon
at the time of the femls. There have
heer. many fa\orab!e criticisms of this
work iu the east, uud perhaps that most
lintworthy is the following from the Phil
adelphia Press; "Marshall's work re
calls the atmosphere of Jack London's
stories of the wild and some of Key
Beach's most thrilling talcs.”
