tion, poker should now be relegated to
the garret with "Nellie Bly" and "Old
Maid." We are ready for it. The
game is here. Monte Carlo may well
look to her laurels, for our own fac-
ulty has entered the field,_ unhands-
capped by a "can't lose" reputation.
The highest form of gambling is now
offered in the university curriculum,'
under various names,-S. & R., CE la,
16, '2 and 3, ME, etc.
We would not seem to protest
against the official establishment of
the game within our walls.' We have
always counted ourselves among the
down-to-date progressive vanguard.
But it would ease our conscience won-.
derfully to have the patrons come in-
formed, as they go to San Marino. It
is brutalizing to our sensibilities to
see lambs led to the slaughter) The
situation demands a course in adver-
tising ethics, open to students by spe-
As to Also Ran's Proposal.
The pled of "An Also Ran" for the
institution of a speedier method of com
municating examination results found
in our breast a well of sympathy. The
laws will surely say "Hear! Hear!."
It does not seem to be. the intention of
the writer to criticise the keepers of
the' records. it is a big job to post thef
records and send notices to the
"conned." What is. desired is a dif-
ferent system, one that will obviate
The real difficulty in the matter is
devising a method satisfactory to all
parties in interest. It is highly
desirable to save the faculty the great
annoyance of personal inquiries. The
device proposed by our correspondent,
however, is objectionable from the
standpoint of business ethics. A'man's
class record is his own private buss-
ness until he chooses to make it pub-
lic. To many people a condition is a hu-
miliation akin to disgrace, and' they
are entitled to have it kept from the
curious public, to be spared any han-
dicap the advertisement might bring
them. As to the stimulative effect of
publicity, that is decidely "contrary to
the spirit of individual responsibility
and manhood which We earnestly fos-
ter. Each one of us is presumed to be
serious enough in his class work to
meet his obligations without being
prodded by third grade tactics. The.
writer must suggest another device.

Signs of Progress
Persons who have been and seen, and
whose opinions are therefore entitled
to a measure of respect, habitually
affirm that "seeing the world" has an
educational value comparable to'
that of a university training.
They are, inclined to measure
the value of this kind of
experience by the quantity rather than
