Among those forming an \mericon committee, are ; President Seth Low, of Columbia; President Dwi.^ht, of Yale; President G. W. Elliott, of Harvard; President Schurmon, ot Cornell; President Oilman, of Johns Hopkins; President Ang-ell, of Michigan; President Stanley ITall, of Clark; Prof. Simon Xewcomb, U.

With the ad- vnnce of education in the United Stat<?s. the number of Americans attending Eu« ropean institutions .of learning: has', largely increased, but the' vast ina-j jc-rity study in Germany in preference- to Franco. The main rotison for ihif hoa be»!i the facilities offered by the^ German institutions for the admissions of foreig"n students. In Germany aii; America:-! student is allowed to matricu; late and qualify for a degree, on th^; basis of graduation from .some reputable college in the United Stntes. '; "In France, however, until this movement was brought practically to a snc;'- wssful issue on 'January 2?. last, thft student was throughout his university -rareer subjected to. regulations which excluded many Americans. ^ : "There is no established equivalent for the diploma of the French .Lycct with wliich to seek admission into cer;- tain faculties'. The course of study is prescribed, compulsory examinations are held at frequent intervals, nnd thus. i species of surveillance is exercised over the student which deprives In'ro of tfc<; character of a free investigate.!;." ^ The result ofthe labors of Dr. Furber and his nssociate.s was that on Ja.nna|y 2i a ministerial decree from the-con*jil superior de I'instructiou publique As issned which introduced changes iljto the fiirnlties of, science throug-hijut France, which" enable & student frjpm the United States bearing-proper creeftn- t.ials to take any course orjtny partpf a course ttt any one of the French institutions.
