During the winter quarter of 1930 fifty men engineering students from the freshman class of 1929 were registered in a class in which methods of study were discussed. This class met twice a week during the term. At the close of the fall term these students had attracted the attention of the scholarship committee because of poor work. All students in the group had failed or conditioned part of their work. If the scholarship committee had followed its regular procedure these students would have been eliminated from the college because of poor academic work.
