FRIDAY, NOVEZMBER 29, 1912.
..Night Editor-Charles S. Johnson...-
In keeping with the established cus-.
tom of Thanksgiving appointments,
the staff of The Michigan Daily is
augmented this issue with the names
of a number of new men. In many
cases, this recognition has come after
nearly a year of worK for the paper,
with the campus none the wiser.
In all cases, it has meant a lot of
hard work and sacrifice, and we usurp
this bit of space for the purpose of
thanking those men for their loyalty,.
and congratulating them on their at-
tainment of the goal long looked for-
ward to, and, with apologies for nat-
ural prejudice, quite worth while. +
THE HONOR SYSTEM.+
The demand for the introduction of
the honor system in examinations by
a number of students in Prof. Turner'sa
course, and the campaign for reform'
along the same lines which has arisen
Aimultaneously with it at the Univer-
sity of Illinois, poin' to a basic weak-1
Ness in the system of faculty supervis-
ion. We cannot close our eyes to thel
?act that cheating in examinations isl
far too prevalent, How many of us
ire there who can say, as do most of
the graduates of Princeton.; where thet
honor system is in force,~ that theyl
have never seen a case of cheating in
examinations? How many of us
would regard it as a low estimate that
thirty per cent of the students who
take an examination here, give or re-l
ceive aid? Suppose, circumstancest
forced you to employ a doctor, a law-
yer, or an engineer who got his degreei
by cribbing in examinations. Leaving1
the matter of personal honesty out ofc
the question for the moment, should
a }degree from the University of Mich-I
igan not stand at least for a certain
amount of honest work done while in1
school by the man who holds it?
But can this result be brought about
by adopting the honor system in ex-
aminations? We have referred to the
success of the system at Princeton.
The honor system has also been adopt-
ed at other institutions with equally
desirable results. Among the schools
which have adopted this system and
since evinced no desire to return to
the other, are the University of Vir-
ginia, Washington and Lee, Vander-
bilt, Wesleyan, Williams, Lehigh,
Washington and Jefferson, and the
University of Texas. This list of
names carries a great deal of weight
as an argument for the adoption of
the plan at Michigan.
It would hardly be a fair test to
adopt the scheme in one class only.
A student who comes from an exami-
nation where he feels that there is
no harm in cheating if he can do so
without being caught by the profes-
sor in charge, can hardly be expected
to change his attitude within a few
hours when he goes to a class where
his work is not done under the super-
vision of the faculty.
If the honor system is to be a suc-
cess the students must realize that
their conduct during examinations is
a matter of manliness, fair plays and
honesty to their school and fellow stu-
dents. They must realize that they are
not simply "slipping one over" on the
professor in charge of the examina-
tion when they succeed in cheating
without being detected, but that they
are being disloyal to their school by'
lowering her standards, unfair to their
fellow students by discouraging hon-
est work, and unmanly in their whole
attitude by adopting a dishonorable
and contemptible means of boosting
their credit. The only way that this
can be brought about is to have the
spirit general throughout the school.
No such spirit can 'prevail if a stu-
dent is to pledge his honor as a gen-
tileman not to cheat in one examina-
tion, and go to the next feeling that
there cheating is perfectly legitimate
if he is not caught at it
If the system is to be a success, it
should be eftirely free from faculty
interference. The students should be
completely on their honor or not at
all. It is foolish to think of adopting
an honor system if it is accompanied
by rules which provide that students
shall not sit near each other when
writing, that no student shall leave
the room during an examination, or
that the faculty shall try all cases of
cheating under the system. The stu-
dents must feel that the matter is en-
tirely within their -own hands, and
that success or faillure of the system
is a test of their own character and ef-
fectiveness, and not of the watchful-
ness of a member of the faculty.
And if the system is to be a success,
the demand for it should come, as it
has come, from the students. It is a
matter which the student council, the
Michigan Union, and the various cam-
pus societies can profitably take up,
and The Michigan Daily solicits com-
munications on both sides of the ques-
tion from any member of the student
