the theory that to repose a trust pro-
duces generally a desire to respect the
trust,, the so-called honor system has
been introduced in anumber of Ameri-
can universities. Its chief objection is
that It is ethically extravagant. It is
a serious thing to drag out of is nat-
ural soil in the subconscious the del-
icate sentiment of honor and at the
end of each examination make each
student declare that he has neither
given nor received aid.
The evil of cheating in examinations
can never reach very serious propor-
tions in a well conducted institution.
Student sentiment in no college will
tolerate "cribbing" to win scholastic
honors. Such cheating as student
sentiment condones is confined mainly
to cases where dull or lazy students
attempt to escape being dropped.
The evil can be cured by simple
means. A good instructor gets papers
of such a nature that illegitimate aids
are of little avail. Grasp of a sub-
ject, the relation of part to part, judg-
ment on critical questions, application
of principles to facts,-these are the
essentials of a college course and can
be extemporized no more with than
without outside aid. Vital teaching,
fraik and friendly personal relations,
and firm administration when requir-
ed can secure results quite as satis-
factory as those claimed, for the doubt-
ful honor system.
VERIFICATION CLUB PLANS
PROGRAM FOR NEW SEMESTER
Members of the Verification club, the
new faculty organization of the Home-
opathic department, have arranged a
program for meetings during the pres-
ent semester as follows: -
Feb. 27.-"Accessories to Homeo-
pathic Prescribing," Dr. R. R. Melon.
March 12.1"Impressionistic Pre-
scribing," Dr. W,' B. Hinsdale.
March 26.-"Do Remedies Influence
the Growth of Tumors?" Dr. D. T.
April 23.-"Eye Symptoms of Kid-
ney Diseases and Remedies Indicated,"
Dr. Dean W. Myers.
May 7.-"Hemorrhagic Remedies in
Gynecology," Dr. C. B. Kinyon.
At each meeting, after the paper is
read, the members of the club will hold
an informal discussion The object of
this association is to discuss the va-
rious elements of materia medica, and
especially the verification of remedies
as used clinically.
LIT SYSTEM OF MARKING TO
BE GRADED IN PERCENTS.
When the literary faculty adopted
the "special order" of the administra-
tive board Wednesday night, providing
for the new marking system, a special
subsidiar~y stipulation was added to
the resolution to the following effect:
In a rational system of marking, the
grades are distributed about as fol-
lows: A, not more than 10 per cent.;
B, 15 to 20 per cent; C, 40 to 50 per
cent; D, 15 to 20 per cent; E, about
10 per cent.
it is not expected that such will be
the proportions in any one class, nor
even the record of any one semester;
but in the long run the marks are ex-
pected to work out as above.
