faculty members, but the announce

Tho Sigma XI Is
an hondrary Bclon
tlflc organization al
most nnaiagoua to
Phi Bota Kappa. The
main point of differ
ence lies in tho fact
that tho Phi Bota
Kappa elections aro
based puroly upon
scholarship, while In
Sigma XI they aro
based upon tho abil
ity to do original sci
on tlflc 'investigation.
Of courso tho schol
arship of a Btudent
has considerable to
do with his oloctlon,
but tho primary ob
ject of the fraternity
Is to select only stu
dents who show abil
ity along lines of In
From tho sonior
class each yoar one

dents taking work in
tho applied sclencos
or technical courses
may bo elected. This
yoar the number
came within two of
tho limit. This Is
about tho numbor

elect from the clasB
Tho elections In
senior classes aro:
1908. 13; 1907, 12;
In electing tho
members from tho class, noMces were
sent around to each member of the
faculty to make nomlnatjons. These
nominations were gone over by an
executive committee appointed from
the general membership of tho frater
nity and students wore picked out
and recommended for election. -The
fraternity them took .these, up and dlB
cusBOd each one, going over ,tho
work done and In what manner tho
student, has developed his opportuni
ties for Investigation, and many ' aro
sifted out, In this process. Each can
didate "on this amended list Is then
voted upon separately,
The basis of election for graduate
students Is somewhat more stringent.
Any numbor may bo elected but each
ono Is admitted only on the oasis
of a prepared thesis on some scien
tific tonic. Any original research
work which has, been published by
the graduate student Is taken Into
consideration. Members of the facul
ty are also elected for distinguished
work along any chosen scientific lino.
