Morgan. President Morgan, who is also s drainage engineer, lias now introduced another feature, called an au tonomous program of study. Th' freshman and sophomore years havr regular, required courses of study, like any other college, but the last four years at college have class work under an elective system in that there are no lectures; no regular class meetings and the student sees his teacher only once a week, when he reports on what he has done and asks advice if he wants it. In some classes the student receives a syllabus and is left to follow it without help; in others he prepares his own syllabus. All that is necessary is that at the end of the k period ho pass an examination. Although the system was introduced only last fall, President Morgan said it had already proven a signal success. A comparison of the Winter '.emester of this year with other years .howed no lowering in standards, and both students and teachers have expressed themselves as highly satisfied with the new policy. President Morgan also told of the new science building given to the college by Charles F. Kettering, Vice President of General Motors, who donated 300,000 for that purpose. Seven years ago Antioch College adopted a system under which students combine work with study for six years, when they receive their ' baccalaureate degrees. They work five-wee- ures'for the second semester owing to pressure of other work.
