THE REALIZATION HAS COME.
With but seven cases of cheating; brought before the stu
dent advisory committee during the past term as against 29
for the term proceeding, students and faculty alike have cause
for rejoicing. The decrease is not due to a decrease in watch
fulness on the part of the faculty, but rather to a realization
on the part of students that cheating does not pay.
The high-water mark has been reached and passed. It is
highly improbable that the students in the future will toler
ate cheating. They have come to a realization that, cheating
is dishonesty, and that dishonesty is a sin. It is not with a
feeling of pride that the student tells of a large number of
students caught cheating. The decrease in the number of
cases brought before the committee is cause for feeling of
It is true that during the past term, more than in any pre
vious year, the students have come to look down upon the
cheater. The student who lets it be known that he is a cheater
doesn’t rate so high in the estimation of his fellow-students as
he did in the past. He admits dishonesty, whereas in former
day he admited a peculiar quality which enabled him to fool
his instructor. It is dishonesty now, not cleverness.
While tlie amount of publicity given to penalties and to
the University regulations and the policy of enforcing them
may have influenced some, the majority were influenced sim
ply by the proposition that cheating was wrong.
A still greater decrease during the final term is to be
hoped for. The question of what constitutes cheating may be
the cause of several cases, but students are now convinced of
.the moral depravity of cheating and dishonesty. It is with a
feeling of pride that we say, “Cheating is NOT.prevalent at
the University of Oregon.”
The varsity nine plays its first game of the season this
Saturday. Let’s all be out to get a line on what’s to be ex
pected during the coming season, and incidently show the
players we’re ready to back them as far as they can go.
Language students are likely getting worried. Maybe
the elimination of the vocabularies in the back of the book will
be the next move.
It’s getting time to trot out the Mexican athletes. The
doughnut track meet looms in the horizon.

PETITIONS ARE DENIED
Minimum Standard of Seventeen Hours
In Two Terms Must Be Made
Without exception, the probation com
mittee denied the petition for re-in,state
ment in the University submitted by
eleven of the 215 students who had be
come ineligible for registration because
of failure to make sufficient hours
'Neither were any exceptions made to the
100 students who have been placed on
probation for the spring term.
The committee takes the stand that,
regardless of the cause, the 17-hour
minimum must be achieved. It held
that in establishing the 17 hours for two
terms the University was setting an ab
solute minimum, and that students com
ing under this minimum must conse
quently be refused re-instatement.
These eleven students who had peti
tioned the probation committee had made
from eight to 10 2-3 hours in two terms.
Of these, one made 16 2-3; one, 161-3;
one, 11 2-3; and one, 15; but it was
found that the students making these
credits had received low grades.
A new scholarship code replacing the
existing probation code, and containing
one or two substantial changes, will be
submitted to the faculty at a meeting to

in this regard, keems decidedly re
The dean visited the University of
Kansas, Kansas State College, Univer
sity of Missouri, Princeton, Harvard,
Columbia, University of New York, Uni
versity of Michigan, Marquette Univer
sity, the Jesuit school at Milwaukee, and
the University of Wisconsin, of which
he is a graduate and the University of
Minnesota. He also visited a number
of smaller colleges. “I feel that the
work at Oregon compares favorably
enough with anything in the East,” he
said, in speaking of the journalism
training. The eastern training, he said,
specialized in different lines of jour
nalistic work, while the western system
embraced a wider, more comprehensive
curriculum. The University of Kansas,
the dean found, was the only school of
importance where the general journal
istic training was being given similar to
that at Eugene and Seattle. “The East”
he said, “will be slow to give full credit
to the Western universities. This is
due to the fact that the East does not
now, and probably never will, know
much about the Pacific coast.”
Aiumm Are met.
In Chicago Dean Allen met William A.
Dill, formerly of Eugene, and who at
one time owned the Springfield ^News.
He was a reporter and desk man on the
Register, later the Guard and Portland
Oregonian. At present he is the night
editor of the Associated Press in Chi
cago ,and is secretary of the newly es
tablished Medill school of journalism, at
Northwestern University. At Harvard,
•the dean met Lamar Toozet a . graduate
of Oregon. Toozc will complete his law
course there this spring, and will begin
his practice in Portland. The dean also
met Mrs. Tooze, who was formerly
Marie Sheahau, also an Oregon student
While visiting Princeton, Dean Allen
met Doctor .T, D. Spaeth, who has been
at Oregon during several summer terms
in pnst years. Dr. Spaeth was coach
ing the Princeton crews and the dean
first encountered him on the lake, di
recting four varsity eights with the aid
of a launch and megaphone.
The dean visited the offices of many
of the metropolitan papers in the cities
where he stopped and was impressed by
the wonderful equipment used by the
modern newspaper. Only one paper, the
office of which bears the memory of the
airly days of journalism, was found.
This was the Boston Post, a paper which
numbers its daily circulation at a cold
half million. Amid the crooked streets
of Boston the office of the Post is still
to be found in the original building. The
nnrrowness of the streets gives rise to
a law against the erection of new struc
tures in this part of the city and New
England tenacity prevents the Post
from moving. To get the space neces
sary to house modern presses, they dug
a basement seventy feet deep. This did
not give space enough so buildings on
the side were bought and the same pro
ve* ding carried on. Presses and raa
:hines were crowded in until the alleys
ictweeD them rivaled the crooked streets

idjoining building did not quite match,
