T'vOES cutting class hurt scholarship appreciably? The survey
made by the University personnel research bureau seems to
say that it does not; but neither news stories nor excerpts from
expert surveys always tell the complete story. It is unlikely
that enough emphasis has been laid on the work of the student
who cuts classes most.
The research was carried out by professors who compared
grades of class-cutters with those of students who had perfect
attendance in the same classes. The results showed that those
who had the most absences still might be leaders, might be
average, might fall below the standard. Grades seemed to have
no great relation to attendance.
Grades necessarily are based on comparative scholarship
alone, and little attention is paid to the proportion of his own
ability used by the individual student. The grading system
counts not ability which might be used but only that displayed.
Just so, students may "get by" very well indeed without exerting
The point here made is that slackers may easily have learned
little in a course, yet may equal the grades of those conscient ious
students who have learned much. That is, the slackers may
not have learned as much as they might have, while the con
scientious students may have learned all that it la possible for
them to assimilate.
Whose scholarship has suffered if those conditions exist?
Whose grades are lower than they might have been? Does
cutting class have any great relation to scholarship? It seems
possible that the man with ability above that small amount by
the course who cuts classes, who seeks only equally good courses
outside, has failed in scholarship. He has succeeded only In
Wanted - Co-operation
fVREGON living groups have had their ups and downs us tar
as their financial and physical living conditions are con
cerned and several attempts have been made to stabilize the
forces which contribute to these conditions. These attempts
have been unorganized and their efforts could be said to be little
more than feeble.
Now, for the first time, tin organized attempt is being made
to make a survey of the conditions and it is being made at the
request of the fraternities and sororities themselves, through
the house managers’ association. An ex-president of the associa
tion. Lloyd Sherrill, is in charge of the survey and he is working
in conjunction with the school of business administration and
John M. Rae, associate professor of business administration, who
has made a special study of the problem.
The usual object of co-operative buying and similar ideas
have been abandoned by the leaders of the project and they will
attempt to go even deeper into the problem and compile infor
mation which will be of much greater benefit to the living
groups. The primary objective of the research is to reduce liv
ing expenses and to improve physical conditions of the organiza
tions. The problem is a big one and many groups should wel
come assistance in the matter.
Common sense tells us that the expense of living is an en
tirely separate thing from the secrets of the ritual and that
every member of the organization is entitled to know just how
efficiently his house is being run. In the past people who have
attempted to make smaller surveys have had much trouble in
securing reliable information about the conditions of the houses.
The tacts obtained in this new project will be kept entirely
secret as to their sources and only general figures will be re
If the attempt is to be successful it will be necessary for
the living groups to co-operate with those in charge of the
survey. The results obtained from the study will be of great
value to every organization and every organization should lend
its support to the project.

Speaking of cutting classes, the
Idaho Argonaut carried a story
last Tuesday estimating the value
of one day of classes at $14. This,
they say, is figured in addition to
the worth, $9 per day, of a high
I school and grade education. The
article goes on to say that 73.63
per cent of those listed in “Who’s
! Who in America” are college grad
: nates. Thirty per cent of these
had degrees above that of B.A.
