With the growth of classes Phi Beta Kappa elections become more significant every year, for the percentage from each class becomes smaller. Competition has also grown keener, and hence the honor won by the men whose names are announced this morning is greater than it was in former days. The elections, moreover, have been conducted as fairly as a college grading system will allow, and scholarship has been the only standard. To men who have been busy in College affairs and have also made the Society, this is distinctly added honor; to others it is, of course, an achievement in itself very much worth while.
