(Tiin mnro than their share of the
prizes Is of considerable Interest.
Are Southern boys better students or
do they pursue older-fashioned ideals?
The theory that In the North and West
the best undergraduate talent at the
universities is destined for business or
professional careers does not hold In
the case of the Naval Academy, where
all students are fitting themselves for
the same life-work. And certainly the
test of scholarship and discipline is as
severe there as in any academic course.
The fact that the naval tradition has
always been strong at the South may
have something to do with it, though
that assumption does not explain why
Alabama's relatively small contingent
should contribute two honor men while
many of the great states of the North
and West have none.
Whatever the cause, the South has
reason to plume Itself on the fine
showfner made by its young officers and
gentlemen to be in the first grade of
naval service.

"Thank you," said the vicomte, with
a courtly bow, "but I am an indiffer indifferent
