One Never Misses
What He Never Had
BLOOD spilled in the name of
freedom and self-rule saturates
tho pages of history. Many au ar
dent patriot has bitten the dust in
this cause sinco Moses led his party
across a courteously-disposed Red
Sea to the hoped-for freedom of the
promised land. Many a sturdy
Gaelic, cranium has succumbed to
violent pressure for tho sake of
autonomy in Iho Emerald Isle. But
' at least wo have come upon the
group that is loftily indifferent to
self-government on whatever terms.
This group simply does not care
The student council at Yale has
resigned with tho recommendation
that student government there bo
abolished. The Committee of Seven
of Amherst College recently resigned
in a huff because the college hired
a policeman to usurp their duties
because, duo to the efficiency of
this policeman, some Amherst and
iSmith students were dismissed for
conduct unbecoming the quiet virtuo
of the Amherst campus. Even tho
serenity of Harvard calm has of
late been ruffled by student gov
ernment controversy. It is hap
Student government rests neces
sarily on the honor system. Collego
students just cannot got enthusiastic,
over the honor system. It is a
fundamental truth of undergradu
ate life that, virtuo must have its
vacations and that college regula
tions must inevitably be sometimes
disobeyed. And although there is
a certain sportsmanlike joy in slip
ping one over on the administration,
one’s honor cannot be similarly light
ly treated. Tho honor system holds
one too strictly. It is a pretty
idea, but it works too well.
Here at last is something that we
don’t have to abolish at Dartmouth,
because that wo don’t liavo any.
True, we have our l’alaoopitus and
our Occom Council. Hums are duly
planned, freshman fights restrained
this side of barbarism, football ral
lies tenderly nurtured, train conces
sions awarded. But all discipline
is quietly ami inexorably meted out
over in the sanctums of the admin
istration building, and everybody is
glad of it.
A Hint of How
Things Should Be
(University of Washington Daily)
THREE or four students, majors
in history at the University of
Washington, got together not long
ago and organized what is now
known ns the History club. At
present it is still an infant two or
three weeks old but it has gathered
strength by the addition, of several
more student and faculty members.
To most of us it is probably a
History club and nothing mare —
just another of the legion of groups,
clubs, societies, organizations and
elans that befuddle the averago stu
dent with a conglomeration of
Greek, Anglo-Saxon and typically
But when tho program and ob
jectives of this small group are
given more than cursory thought,
there seems to bo something in it
that sets it apart. Tho programs
are made up by papers on some in
teresting historical subjects pre
pared and read by members of tho
club. Discussion has its place. No,
there is no credit involved, no rec
ognition, no reward except that tho
individual members may fool that
they have learned something, have
sifted some kernels from tho abun
Tho History club is not unique.
Wo call to mind another group, ex
clusive in a sense, made up of stu
dent and some faculty members,
who functioned in practically the
same manner but in fields literary
Scavengers of knowledge. Many
of the student members got more
out of the meetings of tho club
than out of many of their courses.
It was not work although it was
study. It was mental stimulation.
Somehow or other, this form of
study and tho attitude involved
smack distinctly of University, or
what University should be.

WOODWORTH FALLS FROM
J. Alden Woodworth, dramatic
star, went horseback riding the
other day. lie thought ho was a
good horseman and picked a snappy
horse at the stable. However, he
overestimated his ability. The horse
started to run away and J. Alden

to look like an Arctic explorer, he
harnessed some wild wolves and

horse up the perpendicular cliff and
swam Box Canyon two inches ahead
of a log jam.

“Yes,” Colonel I. Wiggle replied
haughtily, “You may wrap it up in
