I Ross. w SENIORS WIN DEBATE Friday eight � public debate was held in Taylor Hall between the Seniors and .luniors. the question: Resolved, Thai The Cnited States should Increase her armament, was decided by the judges, Miss Bheares, Miss Parkhnrat, and Dr. Fenwick in favor of the negative. This side was upheld by S. Nichols, F. Hatton, and I. Foster; B. I.. Hill, If. llranson and M. Dodd, supported the affirmative. The negative was judged to be superior in both the pres.illation of I heir arguments and their delivery. F. Hatton received the greatest number of points for presen- tation. Her performance was really re- markable for with but an hour's pivpara- tion ahk substituted for L. Davidson who had been suddenly taken ill. I. Foster was aspen dally good because of her ani- mated manner of speaking. Miss Shearer was much encouraged by the "clash" be- tween the two teams and the improve- ment each side showed in meeting the arguments of their opponents. Dr. Fen- wick in his summary of the debate criti- cized the monotony of delivery of most of the speakers. He urged the debaters to make fewer points but to make them well, "to drive them home" by a more vigorous and forceful manner of speak- ing. In these days .when the American col- lage suffers from so much criticism and from comparison with foreign univer- sities, it is interesting to note how our men's colleges are attempting to substi- tute for the preparatory school spirit of routine and prescribed study the univer- sity conception of independent and original work. A system of "Honors" adapted from the English and Canadian systems has been lately introduced into Harvard, Yale and Princeton. The plan, though modified in each of the different universities has the same general' fea- tures. Students who in their first two years have received high grades may be- come at their own request "Candidates tot Honors" in their major work. To quote the "Yale Daily News": "A differ ent kind of instruction and examination will be given in the "Honors' work planned especially to train and test the reasoning powers. More specialization in the last two years will be permitted, but no more will be required than at present (Or the major and minor. In all cases, however, the different quality of (hi work is of greatest importance rather than extreme specialization." The "Honor" men are thus given separate In- struction In their special subjects liul there is not complete segregation, since the rest of their study is shared with men working under the ordinary plan. Then are two big advantages in this tyatem. The exceptional men are allowed to continue their Special studies unhampered' by the slower progress Of their loss capable or less ambitious fel- lows. Qreater freedom In the manage- ment of (hair work may be given the "Honor" men than is perhaps expedient for the general body of students. The men who go in for "Honors" aspect hard work, but they racslVS the beat instruc- tion, are granted certain privileges, such la silt regulation of attendance at classes, and are encouraged in original ami research work. Delegates Impressed with Work of Other Colleges At the Intercollegiate Students' Govern- ment Conference held recently at Kad- fliffe, the Ilryn Mawr delegates were im- pressed by the fact that at most of the women's colleges, the activates of the Self-Governmenl Associations were more varied than they are at firyn Mawr. This may be the caso because onr association. in its charier, was definitely given man- agi mem over but "matters concerning the conduct of the students in their college Ufa which do not fall under the jurisdic- tion of the authorities of the OOUegi of the mistresses of the halla of resi- dence." inner associations which have no charter or are framed less precisely than ours have gradually assumed charge over all college' matters. Some censor the periodicals and plays, organise Are- drills, control the calendar of event carry on various kinds of philanthropic work, and give numerous entertainments to promote a feeling of esprit do corps among (be student body, furthermore the delegates from Bryn Mawr found that at several colleges tbe'Studenl v a* tion- are called upon to enforce rules made l)> the college aulholities. Of course, in due chattel- w \..<\- agreed Lu "support the authorities of the college and tl,e mistresses Of the balls of residence" and are endeavor to co-operate with them in all matters; but we are not held di- rectly responsible for enforcing rules made by the "oHiec" as is the case in some colleges where, for instance, the chaperons, rules are made by the Dean but are put into stfeoi by the Student QOVei union! Association. These .statements do not apply to,each particular college represented at the Con- let once, bin they give a general idea of the fundamental dlfft ranees between our Belf-Government and other Student A ciatlons.
