PHI BETA KAPPA MAKES USE OF NEW SYSTEM IN ELECTING 30

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Phi Beta Kappa Society at the University is using a new electoral system this year, it was announced last night. The primary basis for judging the 22 men elected from the first 44 in scholastic rating in the Senior class will be the reports submitted by the tutors of the honor men.

The tutorial system has not yet been put into effect for men taking scientific courses, and the eligible men from these academic branches will continue to be judged by their scholastic achievements. The Phi Beta Kappa electoral action is in keeping with the growing tendency among honorary aooleties to select men as much for their character and service to the college as for their scholastic ability.

The seven resident Seniors of the Phi Beta Kappa Society held their first election in University Hall last night. The results of the balloting will not be published until the Graduate Committee has approved them.

Twenty-two Seniors and eight members of the Junior Class will be elected to the Society.
