developed, which brought on ty

years of age last October.
Roland Diller was born in this
borough and after finishing his

entered Franklin & Marshall Acade

pursued his studies for several terms,

where he had a position of great re
sponsibility in the assaying depart
ment, which he filled in the most
satisfactory manner until sickness
prevented him from further continu
ing his work. He was a promising
young man of exemplary habits and
had a large circle of friends wher
ever he went. He was a consistent
member of Trinity Lutheran church.
Besides a large host of friends, he

brothers and sisters to mourn his

Sophs. Return to History
The strike of the Sophomores
against the instructors of the Depart
ment of History and their methods of
teaching has been adjusted satisfac
torily and the class together with oth
ers taking the subject have returned to
duty. To show that there is no hard
feeling, Mr. Ray, the instructor, will
hold a “quiz” the latter part of this
week to enable the class to make up
the work they have missed.
The class held a meeting on Monday
evening in Room 20 Engineering
Building and Dr. Atherton took this
opportunity to explain matters so that
an amicable adjustment of the trouble
could be made. The class finally
voted to return to the History class on
the assurance of Dr. Atherton that the
following conditions would be carried
1. No cuts or excesses are to re
sult from the absences incurred from
History classes last week.
2. Arrangements made for tutor
ing and re-examinations are to proceed
as if nothing out of the ordinary course
of affairs had occurred.
3. The method of teaching the
subject is to be so altered as lo give
more general satisfaction.
4. The History examination pa
pers are to be re-graded on the assump
tion that the examination was too long.
