Our instructors in our various studies have kindly given us a recitation period in which to prove to them by a written paper that we de serve to be classed as "A" stu dents. I am sure that many of you took advantage of this oppor tunity to show that you deserved high rank in your studies, but those of you who did, made the grade, not 011 that test period, but on all your previous recitations. Those of you who have been studying hard and as a result have made good should not for a moment permit this fact to cause you to slow up. The "A" may have been just an "A" and one that cannot be reproduced at mid year without a greater effort than was put forth for this one. Let this grade give you a strong reso lution to keep it even if it requires a great deal harder work. Those who did not make good grades should realize the fact that you have not put forth the effort. Those who failed (I hope this number is small) should not let this discourage you but let it act as a goad to force you to .work when you want to be having a good time. Never say: "Prof. didn't trea*. me right. He flunked me when he could have passed me if he had wanted to." Just realize once for all that von have not been making use of your rime, that you are here for work and if you work you will make good and will have no cause whatever for grumbling. THE QUAKER STUDY CLASS. A group whose purpose is to study the history and doctrines of the Society of Friends held (lur ing the month of October three successful and well attended meet ings. A great deal of interest has been shown in tl>(- undertaking not only on the part of the Friends of the College who feel a need to know better the reasons and historical background for their faith, but also on the part of many of other denominations who And in the history of Quakerism much that is worth knowing. The program of the first: meet ing consisted of a discussion by Professors Balderston and Brin ton of the history of the modern Young Friends movement in Eng land and America and the confer ences and other activities in which it has expressed itself. In the second meeting l'rof. Brinton outline 1 the history of the Christian Church from apos tolic times, particularly dwelling 011 the conditions which brought about the Reformation in Ger main- and Puritanism in England, and the history of the religious unrest and many sects of the Com monwealth period, out of which Quakerism arose. In the third meeting Gertrude Cronk took up the life of George Fox, selecting particularly those incidents which throw the most light on his character and the na ture of his message. Prof. Balder ston followed with an account of Fox's Journal and read several in teresting passages in the pic turesque language of the original manuscript. It is the plan for the next meeting to take up several of the most striking characters of the early period. ZATASI AN NOTES Our meeting of Oct. 29 was one of unusual interest.
