F. 8. SMITH SPEAKS
THREE TIMES TODDY
Evening Meeting at Y. M. Hut
For Men Only.
Tlie evening meeting of Fred B.
Smith, vice president of the Johns-Man
ville Company, is to be for men only
announced Hal Donnelly yesterday, com
plying with a personal request that Mr.
Smith made by telephone late last night.
The meeting will be in the “Y” hut at
IMS and Mr. Smith will deliver his
famous address on “The Strong Man.”
He addresses the assembly this morning
on the “Greatest Problem in America
Today” and a special group of men in
the “Y” at 5.
Mr. Smith will arrive this morning
from Seattle where he made a great im
pression on both students and faculty.
It is said that he is a very tall and
powerful man weighing about two hun
dred and fifty pounds, with bushy black
hair and a knack of driving his points
home with his forceful personality.
The name of Fred B. Smith is known
hy a great many college men all over the
Tnited States for he has spoken to col
leges and universities almost continually
for the last twenty-five years, gaining
and holding the distinction of the best
liked speaker to students. The follow
ing is a quotation from the Iowa State
. uueui, tup lowa State L Diversity daily,
m '*s story of the Smith meetings there
recently, which were attended by twelve
iliousaud students: “It is safe to say
dtat nothing aside from war-time occa
sions ever impressed itself so deeply
upon the sentiments of both faculty and
student bodies. At the station, while
"’siting for his train to speed him back
to \ew \ ork. groups of students and fae
"ity members stood about tlm big cru
sader iu admiration and gratitude. Pres
tdent Pearson was in the number and had
^ privilege of the last handshake.
introducing the speaker at the
morning session, President Pearson made
at> exclamation that embodies the sen
timents of the people who hear*d the
^“ries °f addresses: ‘Oh, that America
had a thousand Fred B. Smiths.’ ”
STANDARDS TO BE HIGH
Five Now As Good As Honor Toward
The faculty colloquium met in Dr.
Gilbert’s room last night and discussed
ways and means of raising the scholastic
standard of the University by. limiting
the number of hours of low grades that
can count toward a degree.
Many faculty members feel that it is
not fair to honor students and others
who maintain a high standard of college
work to receive the same benefits that
are gained by students who obtain their
diploma with bed rock grades.
Students have been graduated from
I the University in time past, who rarely, if
ever, made more than a five grade, yet
! with the same kind of benefits as those
made all honor grades.
Carlton Spencer, registrar, reports
that there are two students in the pres
ent senior class who have made almost
a straight record of five grades ever
since their freshman year.
A number of plans have been suggest
ed, requiring a student to make so many
scholarship points before graduation and
requiring that a grade of five not count
toward the accumulation of these points
is one of these. At present Stanford
puts on probation and even expells stu
dents who do not come up to certain
standards of scholarship.
As the colloquium is an unofficial fac
ulty “debating society,” no definite of
ficial action was taken.
NEW FALL SCHEDULE

ter Than Old.

gins; December 19, 20. 21, Monday,

ginning on the 24th and 26th of Septem
ber, closing over a week before Christ
