An honor system for the school of
commerce has been suggested by a rep
resentative group of Senior majors in.
that department, and vvilf be voted on
by commerce students tomorrow.
This is a new student movement for
the purpose of higher scholastic stand
ards in the University, according to
those backing it. The plan is originat
ed by the seniors in the school, who
have prepared a pamphlet setting forth
the scheme and its advantages.
There has been a general feeling
among those responsible, that an honor
system would create an incentive for
better scholarship, and thus increase the
general efficiency of the department.
Speaking for the faculty of the com
merce, Dean E. C. bobbins nays he is
in favor of (lie plan, aud has announced

Students to Punish.
The system is regarded as an out

SUBJECT OF LECTURE
j Wisconsin Dean Writes Dy
ment of Opinion on Subject.
Although the question of establishing
Junior Colleges as a means of solving
the problem of increased attendance at
the universities lias never become a pro- j
i jeet in this stale, it is regarded by some I
| members of the faculty as a. matter .de- j
serving much consideration. G. G. Sol- j
lory, dean of the College of Letters and
Science at the University of Wisconsin,
recently spoke oil this subject before the
National Association of State Universi
lies at Washington, and has written some
reasons for his remarks in a letter to
! Dean Colin V. Dymeut.
Dean Sellery says, “Our attendance is
doubling every ten years because more
and more people look to the university
as the gate of opportunity, either for
success along technical lines or along
other lines. We are confronted, there
fore, with the double problem of nnin
| bees and costs. We can not raise stand- |
iirds above the requirements of the pro- j
fessions. We can not exclude students '
and meet the expectations of our oiti
i zens. Will (lie Junior College help? The
Junior College, if we establish several of
them in a state, will not reduce numbers j
or costs. They will, however, give us a
higher range of talent at the central uni
versity for the last two years of the
course, provided they are "put from the
start under the control of the central
university. If they are not put under the
control of the central university, their
standing will be local and variable, and
consequently the students who puss from
them to the junior year of the univer
sity will not he ready to march forward
"We can not look, therefore, for de
creased numbers or materially lower
costs, and consequently must rely upon
-increased taxation and that means the
education of the American people to a
weight of taxation from which they have
been exempt. However, they must learn
to view education as an investment.”
