Keep Summas For Graduate Students

My attention was caught by the article concerning what to do about regulating cums, magna cums and summa cum laude honors (Worries About Summa Integrity Drive Downsizing Reform," Scrutiny, June 5, 1997). It seems there is an inordinate profusion of them at Harvard. Evidently, it is becoming somewhat of an embarrassment to the University.
