ing training to these teachers
include t'is University of Ne
braska, Uiivirsity of Minne
sota an:i (he University of Chi

teachers of range management
have had good training in the
fundamentals of the plant sci
ences from some of our better
known universities."

The main attention of the PBK's
was given to literary exercises,
particularly composition and de
bating. Fifty mea were admitted to
membership in the chapter's first
four years. Many of the fifty later
distinguished themselves in pub
lic life. Two Bushrod Washing
ton and John Marshall became
members of the Supreme Court of
the United States.
Three I m p o rt a n t changes
marked Phi Beta Kappa's first
century. They were removal of
the secrecy requirement, transi
tion from a literary society to
an honor society, and admission
of women to membership.
By 1883, here were 20 active
chapters which formed the Na
tional Council of the United Chap
ters of Phi Beta Kappa. Since the
organization of the united chap
ters, the society has recognized
three classes of members; under
graduates, alumni and honorary.
Under graduates are elected
from candidates for degrees in
liberal arts and sciences, usually
among the upper tenth of the
graduating class. Of some 5,000
members elected annually, about
90 percent are undergraduates.
By some sort of a coincidence,
the University chapter of Phi
Beta Kappa Is holding Its meet
