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 out. 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 we not? 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 of organizations. 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.

And that seems true—but in a different sense. Not physical size but bigness of purpose should be our standard for judging an indus trial organization just as it is forjudging a man. Where will you find this company with a vision? 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.
