State Politics Booming.
State politics is beginning to draw
marked attention in this section,
principally because of the recent an
nouncement of Congressman Burton
L. French to become a candidate for
tho United States senate to succeed
Senator James H, Brady. The opin
ion prevails throughout the state that
because of Mr. French's vote-getting
propensities, indicated by the great
majority he received in his congres
sional race in the last campaign, that
he will easily walk off with the repub
lican nomination. His opponents thus
far will be Senator James H. Brady,
Ex-Governor Frank R. Gooding and in
all probability Chief Justice James F.
Aiishie, though the latter has not yet
announced his intentions.
G. E. ('rum for Dark Horse.
It is understood that leaders of tiie
republican party are endeavoring to
bring out a new leader to succeed Sen
ator Brady, in an effort to get a re
organization of the party. It is said
that the choice must come from north
Idaho and it became known today that
the forces were becoming centered on
George E. Crum of Lewiston.

Mr. Carey left here about 60 days

England, and to spend a vacation with
his old bandmaster at Liverpool.
While there, he spent eight days in
London visiting an old schoolmate
and while on the other side took oc

old friends in Moscow, declaring that

Faculty Amends Credit System in Col
lege of Letters and Sciences—
Fewer Credits and More Work.
At a meeting of the university fac
ulty yesterday afternoon an import
ant amendment was adopted to the
"credit" system in the college of letters
and sciences, reducing the require
ments from 16 credits plus military
drill each semester to 15 credits plus
drill. The result is that beginning
with next year only 128 credits will
be required instead of 132.
The change will not, however, re
duce the amount of work that will be
required. It wli, on the other baud,
give an •opportunity for a general
"stiffening" of tiie courses throughout
the college of letters and sciences.
None of the large high standard col
leges or universities iu the country
require more than 128 credits for
graduation from their colleges of let
ters and sciences and it was to har
monize the University of Idaho's re
quirements with those of larger in
stitutions that the change was made.
A similar amendment was recently
adopted in the college of agriculture
so the change will be general through
out tiie entire institution.
Students Trembling Between Flunks
aud Fussing Marks Given Last
Ulianoe Tests.
The semi-annual condition examin
ations, follow-ups of the regular sem
ester exams, were given at the uni
versity today, opening this morning
and continuing through the afternoon.
These exams, popularly known as
"coil exams," are the horror of the
year's work to the students who are
so unfortunate as to be required to
take them. They derive their name
from the fact that it is only on condi
tion that they are satisfactorily pass
ed that the students taking them are
permitted to receive credits in the par
ticular courses which they cover.
All students who fail to get a mark
of "D," representing a grade of 60
per cent, in the regular semester ex
aminations and yet do not fall below
the 50 line are permitted to take the
"con" exams in the courses in which
they fell in an effort to pass off their
conditions. If in the "con" exams
the 60 mark is not reached the course
must be repeated before credit will be
given for it.
That the school of forestry at the
university is attracting attention be

Idaho is conclusively proven by in
