Physical Education Majors
Judged on Scholarship
A new system of rating men students
majoring in physical education has been
worked out by Harry Scott, head of
the men’s department of the school of
physical education, which provides for
granting of awards to every student,
the character of the awards being de
termined by the number of points earn
ed during the year, on the basis of per
formance, scholarship, personality, ac
cumulative experience, athletics, and
teaching ability. The award will be
presented at the beginning of every
fall term for work done the preceding
All awards will be uniform in color
ai.d size, the only difference between
awards of different value being in the
number of standardized units, determ
ined by the number of points scored by
the individual to whom it is given. The
design units will be badges, lemon-yel
low in color, placed upon a dark blue
background seven by two and a half
inches in size. Each unit will be a
crescent, signifying 250 points; lower
units will be a diamond, each half of
which is worth 100 points, a first and
second V, worth 50 points apiece, and
an indefinite number of other V’s worth
25 points each.
The method of determining the num
ber of points earned by the student is
a complicated one, and for this purpose
a table is kept of each man’s record.
The points made in performance are
computed on the score made in the phy
sical ability pentathlon. The scholar
ship score is based upon the academic
average for the year, no points being
given for an average below 4.5. The
personality score is graded upon the
individual’s personality, attitude, in
terest, promptness, personal appear
ance, and enthusiasm. The score based
upon accumulative experience is de
termined by the duties performed as
squad leaders, or as paid athletic in
structors outside the University. The
athletic score is based upon the ath
letic ability of the man, as demonstrat
ed by the “making” of freshman or
varsity teams, a varying number of
credits being given for squad or team
made. The teaching ability of the stu
dent is figured on the basis of adapta
bility, clearness of expression, class
management, ability to teach hygiene,
and a knowledge of material on the var
Bythus placing the department upon
a competitive basis, Professor Scott ex
pects to achieve two results. One will
bo the greater efficiency of the de
partment, obtained through being able
to know to a mathematical certainty
the quality of the work done by each
individual, which will furnish a reliable
basis on which to make recommenda
tions for positions as athletic instruc
tors. The other result will be better
work which will bo done by students
when they are thus placed upon a strict
ly competitive basis.
“Every man is bound to work harder
when he knows the results of his work
will be compared with his classmates’
and put down in black and white in this
manner,” said Professor Scott.

It is estimated the courts will be ready
for use sometime near April 1.
President Campbell assured the coun
cils that construction of the courts
would in no way interfere with the
planned devlopment of major fields. A
great deal of money will be spent dur
ing the next few years in this line, the
plan being Jo construct three terraces

Baseball Diamond Included
It is hoped to finish the first terrace
this spring, in addition to developing
a new baseball diamond and a 220 yard
straightaway for track work.
The girls’ athletic field, which has
already been graded, will also be finish
ed off and surfaced before summer, ac
cording to present intentions.

Those opposing the amendment con
tend that it is not fair to the men
who trained faithfully for months to
receive their letters just because the
team did not win the event, since in
other athletic contests, such as football
and baseball, a team might not win a
single game or an individual might not
win a single point, yet all would receive

.just to the quarter-miler since he usual
ly has but this one opportunity to win
his letter—at the coast meet in the re
lay race—-and if the team fails he gets
no letter no matter how hard or how
faithfully he may have worked.
It is urged by the student body pres
ident that ail students acquaint them
selves as far as possible with these
amendments, not only with the provi
sions themselves, but with the argu
ments for and against them by those in
position to know more about their ef
fect. This will insure a more intelligent
vote next Thursday when the students
express their opinions by ballot.

The “PRACTICAL” Alchemist and
“THEORETICAL” Robert Boyle
HE alchemists wrote
vaguely of “fluids” and
was potentially silver.
Rid it of its red color and the
“ principle” of silver would assert
itself, so that silver would remain.
With a certain amount of philos
opher’s stone (itself a mysterious
“principle”) a base metal could be
converted into a quantity of gold
a million times as great.
This all sounded so “practical”
that Kings listened credulously,
but the only tangible result was
that they were enriched with much
Scientific theorists like Robert
Boyle (1627-1691) proved more
“practical ” by testing matter, dis
covering its composition and then
drawing scientific conclusions that
could thereafter be usefully and
honestly applied. Alchemists con
jectured anddied; he experimented
Using the air pump Boyle un
dertook a “theoretical” but sci
entific experimental study of the
atmosphere and discovered that
it had a “spring” in it, or in other
words that it could expand. He
also established the connection
between the Boiling point of water
and atmospheric pressure, a very
“theoretical” discovery in his day
but one which every steam engi
neer now applies.
He was the first to use the term
“analysis” in the modern chem
ical sense, the first to define an
element as a body which cannot
be subdivided and from which
compounds can be reconstituted.
Boyle’s work h^s not ended.
Today in the Research Labora
tories of the General Electric
Company it is being continued.
