Women are now allowed to pursue advanced
courses of study at the University of Virginia.
They are not allowed, however, to attend lec
tures, but may receive separate instruction. Their
examinations are also separate. While they may
pass the same standards for proficiency as men,
they are not allowed to "graduate" after the
manner of the men. Ex.
We sincerely pity the poor innocents who have
to attend chapel upon Saturday. To sit under
the droppings of the sanctuary on school days is
often quite a task, but to do it on Saturday must
often be nearly work. We are aware that stu
dents take umbrellas when they go in damp
places. We wonder if they leave them behind
when they attend compulsory chapel exercises.
We wonder if so many of our exchanges that
publish foot-ball notices after foot-ball notices, do
not do it because it is much easier to fill their
papers with this sort of "hand me down" ma
terial, than to write up something original. Foot
ball is all right in its place, but it should be re
membered that this place does not extend in time
all through the college year and in position all
through the college paper.

There is a tendency in many colleges to in
crease the amount of elective work in the differ
ent courses. The idea of early specialization is
becoming very prevalent. This change in pro
cedure should be ventured upon very cautiously,
for no one subject can be fully mastered by a
person who has not a broad education. The
worst phase of this question is, that a specialist
too often finds this out too late: There is noth
ing like a broad and sound education upon
which to build the superstructure 01 a specialty.
A building without a firm foundation will never
be a sky scraper.
The colleges of the United States will be fully
represented at the World's Fair. Students will
act as guides. Students will sing. Students will
play foot-ball. Students will probably engage
in boat races. And to make the occasion char
acteristic, students will go home from Chicago
broke. The most tempting ofTer that we have
yet seen, however, is the opportunity to roll in
valids, cranks and old maids about the grounds
on patent chairs. If any student comes out
from this ordeal alive, the management should
present him with a P. II. U. from Chicago Uni
versity, and give him, without grudge, a deed to
