Make the Best of It.
The average student of the University sees in the words of Alfred
Zimmern, who pleads that “the University is not a glorified high
school,” a laudatory note. Made so, because he or she applies it to
the individual case and there is the usual self-satisfied feeling always
accompanying the realization that initiative and ambition have
brought about a spirit of independence. We, as individuals, revel in
the fact that we are independent, that we are no longer subject to
the “schoolmaster” idea, and that we can meet the faculty instructor
on the same level and talk to him as man to man,—seeking his counsel
and advice as he may seek ours.
The faculty members of the student affairs committee,—which
committee probably has ruffled the students more than has any other,
by its part, in regulating the affairs of the campus,—declared them
selves ready to see the establishment of student government here.
Their statement was based on sound principle, and they have shown
their readiness to get away from the “schoolmaster” idea,—they are
convinced just as we are convinced; that our problems are our own,
we who must abide by the solutions of them should first work them
Consider for the moment, the recent statement by a well known
college president of the principle under which his institution was
conducted. He found a wholesome desire among some parents to
throw the responsibility upon the college, but in turn threw the
responsibility back upon the students, allowing them to work out
their own rules and regulations. When they transgressed these rules
and regulations they were oidy working against themselves.
We have been dealing in generalities; let us take up the specific
details of what such a plan will mean. We are reminded of the com
munications to The Emerald Tuesday which requested that the org
anizations be allowed to regulate their own social affairs. Then we
as students, electing a representative body to attend to the details
of working out just this sort of thing, would be content to abide by
the decision of this body,—made up entirely of students. Would
Now that we have been offered the ladder with which to climb out
of the dank abyss of faculty rules and regulations, are we going to
fall down and show that in the very beginning we are unable to be
gin the construction of this ladder,—rung by rung, until we have a
perfect organization of student government!
We, each of us desire in our hearts to bring about higher stan
dards of education, and a more complete realization of the responsi
bility as citizens of a great democracy, by facing our own problems.
Let’s do it.
The thing most needed now is a wholehearted discussion on the
plan,—the working out of the details. This must come from inform
al and formal gatherings of students, from the women's league, from
the Y. W. (’. A., from Pan-Hellenic, from the Y. M. C. A., from the
inter-fraternity coucil, from class meetings and from various meetings
It has been made an issue, let us prepare to think it out and have
an expression which will carry the sentiment of the campus. Take
a stand on the matter as an organization, work out the details and
prepare a report to the student council. We have made a plea for
students to take the initiative. Here is the opportunity; make the
best of it.

HEN the talk turns to where should a
V V fellow start work, a question arises on
which college men naturally take sides.
“You’ll be buried in the big company,” say
some. “Everything is red tape and depart
ments working against each other.”
“Your little company never gets you any
where,” others assert. “The bigger the
company the bigger your opportunity.
And that seems true—but in a different
sense. Not physical size but bigness of purpose
should be our standard for judging an indus

Whether its plant covers a hundred acres
or is only a dingy shop up three flights is on
the face of it no indication of what you want
to know—is such and such a company more
concerned with developing men and ideas than
boosting profits at the expense of service ?
You must look deeper. What is the or
ganization's standing in the industry ? What do
its customers say ? What do its competitors say ?
There are industries and there are companies
which offer you every opportunity to grow.
Spiritually they are as big and broad as the
earnest man hopes to build himself. If you
are that kind of man you will be satisfied with
a company of no lower standards.
Conversely, if you are working for such a
big-souled company, the very fact will argue
that you yourself are a man worth while. For
in business as in social life a man is known by
the company he picks.

see far and think straight.
