Honor Systems Again.
“We recommend that the men be given to understand that their
continued presence is no longer desirable.” This was the verdict of
the student committee from the law school which investigated the
charge of cheating brought against two students. The law school
has an honor system, another of those unofficial systems which exist
in spite of the fact that no honor system has been accepted by the
entire University. And there is a weak point in the law school sys
tem, in that, although adopted a year ago, infects whoever may
register in(the law school.
This could undoubtedly be overcome if every new student who
registers in the law school were to have the opportunity to sign
a written agreement or to accept an oath that he or she would ac
cept the condition of the honor system. There could be also a per
fectly clear and defined system of student-made and student-ad
ministered rules for the operation of the principles of honor.
The honor system has long been a bone of contention in practi
cally every university in the country; some have adopted it, others
have rejected it. Only last year the school of business administration
here rejected the honor system on account of a clause in the pro
posed consitution for the system which declared that any student
who witnessed an act of cheating should report to the honor com
mission the case and the name of the student caught.
Back at Illinois there has been an extended controversy over
the system because it appears that a so-called honor commission lias
passed a set of rules for the conducting of honor examinations.
Honor systems are not going to be established at Oregon as long
as a strigent set of rules is laid down. Honor is a matter of char-1
acter, hardly a matter to tie up to rules which savor of honor under
In the recent examinations a number of instructors conducted:
their upper classes on a purely honor system basis. There were no,
cases of cheating in these classes. In other classes the instructors
paraded the aisles and took observation posts, passed out alternate
sets of question and other divers acts, which caused them to be an
object of ridicule to the students. Some students may have thought
it a sporting chance to beat an instructor who adopted such an at
The honor system at Oregon will apparently not be a model of
efficiency and success as long as there is a decentralized control as
is now the ease. Student government and the honor system go hand
Editor of the Kmeruld: A few days
ago, the questiou wan asked In the
forum column as to what would be the
attitude of the students toward abolish
iug Junior Week end. Having talked
with a number of students and having
gome ideas of my own upon this im
port ant subjeet, 1 ask tor a little spaee
in your columns to air my views.
First, attacking the subjeet from a
general standpoint, 1 would say that
Junior Week end is a necessary and
important adjunct to our college life.
As for abolishing the whole thing, 1 am
decidedly against it, just at present.
1 have reasons for my viewpoint. Each
college which draws its students from
the same territory as ours, has a junior
Week end. or at least, some similar at
traction bv means of which it draws
from tin' high schools. It Oregon were
to do nway with Junior Week end, how
big a chance would wo have of getting
desirable high school students to come
here? Naturally, we wWui 1 d be dubbed
a “dead bunch” and would be turned
down in favor of some other institu
tion, no doubt of even inferior grade,
but which entertained high school stu
dents in good style. The purpose of
Junior Week end is to allow high school
students to become acquainted with col
lege. We should have some definite
time in which they can be entertained
This is, at present, taken care of by
Junior Weekend. 1 am in favor of.
limiting our invitations to high school ’
One of the chief objections to Jun
ior Week-end, is the expense of it. If ]
we are to keep it, the expenses should ,
be cut to a minimum. It seems to be
tti« gcperal policy to let the students
pay for as much as can be loaded upon
them, whereas the University should
stand the expense, or a major part of
it, anyway, because it is the one who
profits in the long run, by the improve
ment of its student body. Let us
enumerate First, the canoe fete, which
is put on wholly by the students; sec j
end, the senior play, to which everyone
goes and pays a good price for admin
sion; third, the Junior Prom, for which \
the students reach down in their pock |
Every college Junior Week-end has
some distinctive feature. The one that ;
stands out at Oregon is the canoe fet>.
If we retain our Junior Week end at I
all, we certainly should retain the dis 1
tinctive feature of it. As for the Sen
ior play, that is one way of eliminating
some of the expense. Have it some
other time, and thus do away with
buying tickets for a houseful of guests,
tin top of this, thev stick an extra price
on the field events!
Keep Junior Week end, but cut down
the individual expense!

Not to be surpassed!
Students, are you getting the very best satis
faction in your grocery trade?
Some of you are not regular costomers here;
it is to you we are aiming directly. Perhaps
the service you have been getting elsewhere is
not quite what you would wish.
Only give us a square tryout or else go find out
directly from the other students.
Our line of groceries is popular both in Price
and in Quality
