RADICAL changes in the management of the inter-collegiate contests have been found necessary, and now the whole affair is placed in the hands of a Board of Regents, chosen annually by (1) the students in the Senior and Junior classes of the colleges represented, (2) the Faculties of those colleges, and (3) by a body of Fellows consisting of those college graduates who have taken prizes in the contests, of the judges and examiners, and of a number of honorary members, not exceeding twelve at any one time, chosen by the Fellows because of eminence in literature, science, or philosophy. Some college papers seem to see in this Board of Regents the seed of an institution which shall be to America what the London University is to England, and one enraptured journal talks about a grand national University, "where all the sisterhood of colleges shall be united into one." Surely it would be a pleasant sight to see America's thousands of students flocking to some city in order to be examined. Or perhaps the examining board is to be peripatetic, in which case to be a member would insure one extraordinary advantage in the way of travel. Any one who seriously considers the question will readily see that, combined with few advantages, there are countless objections to a system which shall place the examinations of all our colleges in the hands of a single board. But if the intercollegiate contests as they now exist are in themselves a good, the mode of government which has been settled upon seems to be an eminently fair one.
