The experience of all students who are candid with themselves, must lead them to oppose exact numerical marking. Princeton, Pennsylvania, Ann Arbor, and Johns Hopkins, have discarded it, adopting grading by classes. Why is Harvard so backward? Why is it that this college dedicated to truth clings with such tenacity to an outgrown institution? The students should raise a voice condemning this evil. And this voice should be heard in the conference with no uncertain sound. The resolution which was tabled expressing a foregone conclusion, should have been passed, and ought certainly to be passed at the next meeting. With this expression of student opinion, the need of a change will be felt more strongly in the faculty, and a change may thereby be hastened.
