, THE SCHOOL OF COMMERCE HQNOH SYSTEM.
•r,. ■ fl-be students of the School of Commerce are to vote to
morrow on a proposed honor system for the students of the
school. -This will be the first step taken by the students of
the University towards student government; and the results
of the vote, as well as the result of the system, if adopted, will
be watghed with interest by the rest off the University. i
v The system proposed is an interesting one, and as outlined
hi the pamphlet prepared by a group of senior majors in com
merce should prove as effective as any honor system in any
^Iher; institution. .If approved by a two-thirds majority of
Majors and Specials in Commerce, the Honor system will be
come, effective for all students taking courses in the School
of Cbftdnjerce. The purpose of the proposal is to create an in
eeijtive to scholarship and thus increase the general efficiency
Of the $chctol. .
The reasons outlined in the pamphlet for the adoption of
the system ate eonvineing. “Honesty is the only policy in
pusiiiness!! Honesty should be the only policy in securing a
business education,” is the first.argument in its favor. Not
only does that argument apply to a business education, but to
any other education received in an institution of higher learn
MTt is an undergraduate protest against cheating,” says
'(the second argument, which after all should be the reason for
tile adoption of the honor system* “It will protect honest
students from the work turned in by the cheat. It will re
ward the deserving student,” reads argument three. Not
many students of the University realize that the honest stu
dent lias in the past received the same degree as the dishonest
student. It is a fact that the University, has unknowingly in
the past granted degrees to students who literally stole them,
by obtaining University credit through dishonest, work.
Adoption of the lionor system by students of the School of
Commerce will mean that the degree offered by the School
will be a degree which will be worth its face value, not dis
counted by the character of the student who receives it, or that
graduates of the school will be prepared to compete with their
classmates in the world of commerce on an equal1 basis.
It is possible to pick flaws in the system as outlined in the
pamphlet. For instance, no provision is made as to how the
hpUor commission, which disciplines all violations of the svs
feeUi, is elected or appointed, excfept to sav that the commis
sion will be composed of representative students. The pamph
let announces that the proposal for the adoption of the.system
will he voted on by Majors and Specials in the School, while
every,student enrolled in any course in the School will be gov
erned by the system if adopted. If the system is to govern
alhstudents taking courses in the School, those students should
have a vote on the system.
. da taking the vote it is necessary that those voting sign
their names. If the ballots should get into the hands of the
faculty, it. is presumable that the faculty of the School will
bald themselves on honor not to let the vote of any one stu
«ent have any influence on his or her grade for this term
• “The School of Commerce is now the largest school on the
