ming for this week's grind of exami
nati&ns to relish the real oppor
tunity they afford. What-are they-—
. these two-hour sessions with blue
books and fountain pens? Does the
instructor in charge of the course
try to see how difficult he can make
bis questions? Is he trying to flunk
a large percentage of his class for
the purpose of showing how high are
his standards, Is he trying to find
out how much the poor student
There is an answer to each of
these questions found in the real es
sence of Education itself. For what’
purpose have w’e been reading his
tory, economics, literature and law?
Are we seeking a mass of informa

to success spelled with dollar signs?
We can learn facts; we can read
endless book material and listen to
interminable lectures without becom
ing educated. But if, in the course
of our work, we learn to discrimi
nate; if we take the critical atti
tude, toward all we do, then we may
go into the examination room this
week fully expecting to do our very
best. If our minds are arbiters of
the true and false, the good and bad,
the attractive and repulsive, then
the period of examinations gives us
a chance to exercise the gift of good
judgment. Do you know something?
Why? Of what use is it? Does it
make you happier? Is the informa
