!ay of tlie surrender General Lee sent
a Hi? of tmce to General Grant. While
h-- was waif 5ns the return of his mes
senger to General Grant he sat down
on the roots of an old apple tree and
waited awhile. Lonj? before themes
senrer returned he had left the apple
tree and was at the McLean farm
house. where he and General Grant
he'd their conference and where the
final surrender was effected. The old
apple tree wa3 quickly cut down and
cr.t to pieces by relic hunters, and
something like fifty other apple trees
in the orchard were cut to pieces. The
pieces wore later made up and sold in
various forms through the country.
T!i!s probably encouraged the fallacy
th'Jt Grunt and Lee had sat under the
apple tree. Unt the two generals met
at the McLean farmhouse.
"My vivid recollection of the Appo
mattox surrender Is seeing General
Lee cotne cut of his headquarters on
that final morning and mount Old
Traveler, his famous horse. He was
5 nimacn lately dressed. At his aide he
wore the handsome sword given him
by the people of Virginia. He was
buried In deep thought, and as he
mounted his horse he clapped his bands
absentmindedly together. The private
soldiers crowded about the horse and
begged him for information. I beard
him fay to the men crowding about
him: 'We have fought the war
through. It Is now all over.'

tbe comparative scholastic standing of
the fraternity and nonfraternlty men
for the year 1911. Tresident Schur
man points out that of the eighty
eight men dropped In February as the
result of the midyear examinations
the fraternities furnished 40 to 45 per
cent, whereas the number of male
undergraduates belonging to fraterni
ties constituted but 29 per cent of the
entire male student population.
The figures are about the same as
last ye-r, and Dr. Sehurman says that
Is not a good showing for the fra

Of the 3,rS7 regular' students, exclud

and forty-eight nonfraternlty men
were dropped. The distribution among
