STUDENTS AND TOBACCO.
At Eugene the high school faculty
la nrmrtnor'iwar on cigarette smok
ing. This Is a move that could well
be emulated In other high schools of
the northwest. It Is doubtful If mok
Ing prevail any more at Eugene than
Olgurette smoking and the use of to.
bacco In general Is a vice that should
be kept out of the schools. Especially
hould It be rigidly under the bun In
hie" schools and In the grades. In
colleges and universities more latitude
Is allowed, yet even there the UHe of
tobacco Is frowned upon.
The UHe of tobacco will stunt the In
tellect of a student and it will injure
him physically. The student who
smoke cigarettes or uses tobacco In
any other form cannot be the student
be would be otherwise. He cannot be
a good athle's If he use tobacco to
excess nor can he do full Justice to his
school work. -'. '
If after a man is fully grown he de
sires to use tobacco that J another
.matter. But In high ehools, where
character is in the mouUW.where stu
dents are being fitted,' morally, men
tally and physically, for their places
in the world tobacco should be bar
red. School faculties make no mistake
In demanding that students leave to
bacco alone. If they are wise and
practical they will do that very thing.
