The Acta Columbiana in commenting on several changes made in the marking system at Columbia recently, concluded its article as follows: "The Acta hopes that this slight change may be but the precursor of greater ones in the marking system itself. As the college course becomes more and more elective, and Columbia takes on more of the character of a university, the marking system, in its present form, must lose ground." The marking system in vogue in most of our American colleges has been strongly attacked by nearly every member of the college press, and is generally regarded as one of those relics of old-fogyism that are being constantly exterminated from our progressive institutions. That the marking system now used in our colleges will be a thing of the past within a few years, we have not the slightest doubt.
