Applications io fake ihe tests had io be in ihe hands of Educational Testing Service, Princeton, New Jersey, by May 25. The determination of class rank has been left up to the, colleges and universities. The following four points have been proposed for ranking students for deferment at Central: (1) Any male students who carries 12 hours or more will be considered a full-time student in determining population; (2) All full- time male students enrolled in a given classification during the spring semester, will be grouped together for ranking purposes for deferment during the ensuing year. The ranking shall take place after the grades are in for the spring semester; (3) Our present point system will be used in computing point average;. (4) The cumulative point average, based upon all courses completed, will be used for ranking purposes. *v> CM * .)' jr ^ i ' ! * <0( t *4 W ... t J *i<J* . * f l' 4 '^' i 'p i'V < ' L ,f ' / F'l '.* .'J* ' !*.».: '/ / 1 ■: n, v 1 h t ,'*-* ;?* *,'*-i i 'J 1 I' <,'.
