IfllO. On the whole the grades of thd
newly elected members of tho society
were very similar to those of the
members of the class Inst year who
wero elected to membership in the
scholarship fraternity. In several
cases students were not elected to
membership to the fraternity on ac
count of not having completed seven
of the eight required lines of work in
the college of arts and sciences. The
university requirements for graduat
ing 1b that the members of the stu
dent body shall have completed six of
the seven linoB of required work, but
the, constitution or Phi Beta Kappa
fraternity provides that seven out of
olght of the required lines of work
must be completed.
