book, "Linden Blossoms," by Joffroy
Hrbck. Prof. Hrbok will bo romom

of unusual promise whoso llfo was

typhoid fover. Professor Hrbek held
the newly created chair of Slavonic

ho was here .made an onvlnblo repu

"We aro In receipt of a collection

Juno, 1907, from tho Collogo of Lib
oral Arts of this university, and was
immediately appointed to tho chair of

all tho zeal and energy which was so
characteristic of him at Iowa, that he
succumbed to typhoid fover on De

MUST PASS IN MORE THAN HALF
THE RUi.E WA8 FORMERLY HARD
Reglstrar Harrison Has Devised
8cheme Whereby the Reports of
Delinquent Students Will Be
In connection with tho now system
of vegiBtrntlon which was rocently de
vised by Registrar Harrison and which
worked out with so much success in
tho registration of last weok, it may
bo of in'torest to tho student body
to know of another scheme which has
also been lately worked out and put
Into offect for tho first tlmo. There
bus heretofore been a rulo that any
student of the university who failed in
moro than half of tho -work for
which ho was registered, should not
bo allowed to register again In the
university. However, the committee
on delinquency has always been con
fronted with somo difficulty in enforc
ing this rulo for the reason that the
reports are not as a rule turned Into
tho registrar's office for some time
nftor tho beginning of the new semes
ter, and In this way tho delinquent
students bad registered and begun
their work In the second semester be
fore their delinquency was known to
the office. It was seen that this was
not a good tiling because if some stu
dents who were delinquent in half of
their work wore allowed to go on It
might lead others to becomo Iuk in
their observance of tho rule and in
this way tho list of tho delinquents
would grow gradually larger.
New Plan Necessary.
In view of this situation Registrar
.Harrison set to work to' devlso some
Bchomo . whereby these difficulties
could bo avoided and as a result the
plan which Just recently wont Into
effect was evolved. The plan, briefly,
is this: A list of all Htudents who
wore, dollquent In moro than half of
their work at tho mld-somester is
made up, and to each of these is mail
ed a loiter stating thqlr condition.
In this letter, which must bo taken by
the students to their instructors in
the subjects In which they were- de
linquent, is a paragraph directed to
tho instructors, asking thorn if In their
opinion tho student will be able to
get a passing grade for tho semester.
Tho student tnkos this lettor around
to his instructors and if they report
that his work Indicates that ho will
got through all right the matter is
dropped, but if tho report of tho in
structors is doubtful or unfavorable
another lettor is qont to tho Instruc
tors requesting tho semester grades
of that student as soon as possible.
In this way tho final grade of tho
doubtful students are turned in at tho
ofllco before tho registration begins
and tho students aro then called up
beforo tho committed on delinquency
boforo tlroy aro allowed to register.
Committee Is Just.
As a rulo this committee aro not as
hard hearted as might bo supposed.
They havo no insatiable dosiro to ex
pel delinquent students, from school,
and when tho circumstances of certain
cases mako It nocoBsary for them to
do thfs.tboy regret It as much as dp
tho students themselves. This com
mittee is In rather a. ticklish position
and they novor act-on such cases with
out duo consideration and delibera
tion. At tho closo of tho last semester

some twelvo students from various do

called up boforo tho committee bo
cause thoy,had been reported ns de
linquent in more than one-half of their
work. Tho committee exercised care
ful discretion in theso cases and In
several Instances where the work of
tho student had- shown improvement
since 'tho mid-semester, or wher.e In
the judgment of tho committee, tho
student manifested an earnest and sin
cere dosiro to do bettor work, thoy
were glad to handle the caso with
lenienc'y. Soveral of such students
were allowed to re-register condition

of work or upon strict probation.
This plan worked .very 'successfully
this last somester and It is believed
that It will tend to reduce materially
the number of delinquents in the txu
