mental alertness, critical powers of assimilation, clear and Iogical exposition, balance of
.judgment, variety and depth of interest, ability for social cohesion and leadership, intellectual

the candidate.

knowledge of the candidates which has been already tested through their written papers.

academic study but also in the events which are happening around them both within and outside
their own State or Country as well as in modern currents of thought and in new discoveries
