The program has been largely se

“Bells of St. Anne de Beaupro,” by
Russell, was the most favored and
called for of the compositions on
the program. This selection, whose
composer is the director of music in
the Wannamaker stores and who is
also the organist at Princeton Uni
versity, is one of the most realis
tically beautiful pieces that has
ever been written, mu$ic critics
say. It is an interpretation of the
history of the miraculous healing
of the pilgrims who came to St.
Anne’s Cathedral id Canada. The
piece combines the chimes of the
cathedral with the chanting of the
pilgrims and ends with the ben

A by-product of this winnowing
process at the end of the lower div
ision work may be the rejection of
unpromising material as well as the
conservation and further develop
ment of the best. The committee’s
plan contemplates the granting of a
junior certificate at the end of the
sophomore year, or soon after, which
may be regarded as a certificate of
graduation and honorable dismissal
for those who do not wish to pursue
a university course into the upper
division or achieve the bachelor’s
degree. The successful completion
of lower division work signalized by
granting a certificate might satisfy
the scholastic ambition of many
who now feel obligated to reach the
goal of a university degree. The
institution might, while recognizing
the right of others to continue their
university course, frankly discour
age mediocre students whose uni
versity careers are likely to be bar
ren of any real results. There would
be at this stage a positive selection
of superior students who would not
only be promoted to junior stand
ing but promoted with honors not
unlike those accorded to superior
students upon receipt of the bach
elor ’s degree.
The committee has not thought
best to attempt the task of singling
out superior students for special
treatment before the end jf the
sophomore year. The prevailing
practice seems to be to establish
honor status only with the begin
ning of the junior year. At Knox,
Smith, Swarthmore, and Columbia,
where experiments have been most
extensively tried, honor status is
accorded only when students are
definitely promoted to upper div
Objections will be raised that the
recognition of special attainments
is so long delayed that freshmen
and sophomores, otherwise eligible,
will lack incentive and will contract
habits of passivity and mental in
difference which unfit them |for
privileges of honor students later
on. The answer is that while not
admitting lower division students
for status as honor students, the
registrar, with the help of the hon
ors council, can prepare- a list of
superior students based on the same
criteria of selection as those em
ployed for the segregation of honor
students when they enter the upper
division. Moreover, much can be
done in the lower division to supply
incentive by devices calculated to
secure public recognition of excel
lence in scholarship even during the
earlier years. In the first place, the
entering student can look to the
fairly immediate prospect of “cer
tification with honors’' at the end
of his sophomore year.
In the publication of grades at
the end of the spring term the reg
istrar might be directed to list the
names of students receiving “junior
certificate with honor privileges.”
The criteria for selecting this group
shall be the same as those prescribed
by the honors council for the selec
tion of students eligible for honor
privileges. The junior certificate of
those accorded honor status may
bear the phrase “with honor status”
or the Latin phrase “in laudis
Again, freshmen who matriculate
with unusual high school records and
| who score high in mental tests might
be more extensively admitted to
courses now open to sophomores, or
to sections reserved for students of
superior ability only.
Another concession to lower divi
sion students of exceptional ability
might be a reasonable amount of
freedom in the matter of auditing
classes in related fields.
Lower division students of honor
grade might also be encouraged to
form discussion groups for the inter
change of ideas and the analysis of
material contained in readings chos
en by the students under direction
of instructors. These discussion
groups would properly be regarded
as an apprenticeship for the honor
status later on and might go far
to overcome the diffidence or pas
sivity characteristic of university
students in general.
Second Epidemic Visits
High School Campus
The second influenza epidemic has
hit the University high school, and
| this time it is working against many
| school activities that are now in
. their height, besides decreasing the
I attendance to a very considerable
extent. Practically twenty per cent
of the students enrolled were ab
sent from school yesterday, and four
of the practice teachers were not
able to be present due to the epi
demic. Twenty-two per cent were
counted absent in the previous seige
about two weeks ago.
Four of the first string men of
the basketball quintet are vietims
of the epidemic and practice meets
were discontinued last night by
Coach Frank Reinhart. Three were
out of the line-up for Saturday’s
game with the Corvallis high school,
and two were unable to play the
full time. This substitute line-up
accounts for the 30-12 defeat which
was handed the local school by the

Upon the hills the shadows lie deep;
They cover myriad things asleep.
Asleep in dreams of wakening soon.

Naked trees shiver and brown

Lies in shapeless splashes of mystic
There rest the dead beneath things

SONG FOR. PESSIMISTS
Black her hair and blue her eyes,
And ruby her lips of fire;
And dark is life and bright is life,
And searing is man’s desire.
Brave is the man who sings alone,
And strong is he who wins;
And bent is the tree that braves
And twisted is he who sins.
Sullen her lips and sad her eyes,
And gray her knotted hair;
And cursed is he with the heart of
And crushed are they who dare.

THE OLD INDIAN’S SONG
Close to Carmel-by-the-Sea
On a sand dune near La Yo,
Haunting voices drifted to me
Singing of the long ago.
"Long ago the stars shone brightly
On the silent world below.
Sun—Great Spirit—was asleep then,
Moon was waning to a bow.
Through the trees a breeze sighed 1
Quiet reigned throughout the forest,
Winnesola, long ago.
“Night birds cooed from hidden
Little thought they Tikwemo,
Indian chief, was floating near them,
Watchful by his tightened bow.
Campfires gleamed beside your wig
Leaped up fast, then flickered
Wavelets rippled on the seashore,
Winnesola, long ago.
“On the still sea, paddling lightly,
In my bark canoe, ‘ Lilo
Oft I wondered: were you sleeping
On that night so long ago?
Did you dream of your brave warrior
While you slept, my Small-Brown
Did you dream he. dreamed of you,
Winnesola, long agof”
A train whistle shrieked and woke
From tho voice of Tikwemo.
Foghorns booming their deep warn
Drowned the song of long ago.
I thought to find on top of that
Which seemed to overshadow all
Merely the deadness of the old
Instead—I found the sunset in the

It was not true.
And I’d be glad if you
Would weave with me,
