There Is a inoement on foot in
(astern college clnles to require the
degree of Bachelor of Arts for entrance
Into the professional schools The au
thorities of Harvard and John Hop
kins take kindly to the plan. Presi
dent Hadley of Yale is decidedly op
posed to It He admits that such a
thorough education Is advantageous,
hut he docs not believe it counterbal
ances the disadvantage of lateness In
beginning one's active career. Presi
dent Hadley's attitude on the sub
ject will probably keep Yale from de
parting from her old course.
Wisconsin has introduced an inno
vation this year in the way of a gen
eral reception to the new Btudents. The
purpose Is not to quicken class spirit,
lull to increase the general university
spirit. Believing that the student gets
the most out 'of his university course
who hns some Interests outside of the
class, they take this means of intro
ducing to him the arious activities
of the university
The advantages of belonging to the
football team, ball nine, the societies,
or to any actlvites connected with the
university are discussed by some rep
resentative, and the freshman Is there
by enabled to decide for what line he
is best fitted, or would most enjoy.
These meetings have been held eery
fall for several years by many large
eastern universities and with good re
sults. The lines between the "barbs" and
"frats" are becoming more and more
definite. In class politic h, social mat
ters or what not, the first thing con
sidered seems to be who Is to get the
advantage, bail) or fiat. This spirit
Indicates that students are putting the
interests of their various organizations
before those of the institution which
they represent. An exchange ex pi esses
the Idea thusly:
"For barb is barb and fiat is fiat,
And never the two shall meet
'Till earth and sky stand presently
At Cod's great judgment seat.
But there is neither barb nor frat.
Boundary, breed nor birth,
When two strange men stand face to

It is becoming popular in novel
writing to tell the story of one's life.
"The story of Mary MacLane," by Mary
Mad ane. Is followed by "The Story of
Lizzie McOulro." by Ll.zie McCuire.
Miss MacLane's story will be copied

Woman's Love Letters" were copied
Her book is not a paragon in its moral
aspect and hence is not to be taken as
a model, but it offers to the beginner
in literature the suggestion that It Is
not necessary to write a historical
novel in order to attain fame in let
ters. The portrayal of character is the
ultimate aim of literature, and the
young author can find In his own heart
all that is necessary for a successful
book. The public has been bored
long enough with the clash of steel
and battle smoke.
Columbia University has instituted

The oppoitunities that are opening
in the east, since the attention of the
chili.ed world has been directed there,
are many and promising. The open
ing of the Chinese doors to all nations
will probably he followed by greater
coin men lal activity and a new impe
tus to Chinese civilization. These new
conditions will call for representatives
of the already highly civilized and cul
tured nations to carry on the work
of reform and to instruct the Chinese
in the arts of higher life.
Anticipating such a demand in the
Orient for educated men and women
from our own country as well as from
Europe, Jt is a fitting time for our
colleges to take measures toward in
structing students in the Chinese lan
guages and customs.
The higher institutions of learning
thioughout the United States are striv
ing more and more to make their
courses of study practical, so that their
graduates will be better able to grap
ple with the practical affairs of life.
They have introduced departments of
commerce, of finance, and now comes
the department or Chinese to supply
a new demand.
