Class of 1913 Decides Not to Give
Portrait as Memorial.'
A custom which has been followed
by senior classes in the law depart-
ment for twenty-two years, that of
leaving as a memorial the portrait of
some faculty hiember, is to be broken
by the class of 1913, which has voted
to provide some other commemoration
of its career at the university. What
form this will take will be decided
upon at the next meeting of the class.
The first law class to leave a memo-
rial of a faculty man was that of 1891
which presented a picture of Prof. Wil-
liam P. Wells who died that year.
Each succeeding class has presented a
painting of some member of the lav;
faculty. These portraits have been
placed in the library and other parts of
the law building.

A new three years course in pharma-

board of regents at its meeting last
night. The present two and four year
courses are retained but the degree of
Ph.G., graduate in pharmacy, instead

The degree of B.S. -will be granted at
the end of four years.

are anxiously waiting news from the
flooded districts.
Several telegrams have been sent,
from here,but at a late hour last night,
it was reported that the telegraph
company had been unable to get any
wires through..
Stanley C. Auschberger,'16, is greatly
worried over the situation. "My 9ar-
ents live in the lowest part of the city,"
he stated, "that part of Dayton which
is most likely to be flooded. For that
reason I am afraid that the house was
one of those flooded." Auchsberger was
one of the students who failed to get
a telegram through to his parents.
Miss Leah Moskowitz, '16, is another;
student with fears for the welfare of-
her parents. "Our home is in the up-
per part of the city," she declared, "but
I fear that my father was in the lower
part of the city attending to his busi-
ness when the levee broke. I haven't
heard from home since the flood and

Louis Haller, '12-'14L, had the worst
scare that fell to the lot of any of the
Nebraska students. His parents re-
sided directly in the path of the torna-
do, and he was the first to wire home
for information. Yesterday afternoon
he received a telegram stating that his
parents were all right.
Miss Helen King, '16,was also alarm-
ed as her parents live in the zone of
danger, but she received word that no
one had been injured, and her house
was left standing.

Instituted by the^ "Father of Democ-
racy," Thomas Jefferson, in the Uni-
versity of Virginia at its founding in
1819, the honor system fdrmed the
corner-stone of that great statesman's
policy of student self-government. It
was his idea that the effects of fear
are but temporary and unsatisfactory,
and that the proper way to correct the
indiscretions of youth was to inculcate
"pride of character and laudable am-
bition" which 'would create a soundx
and permanent "spirit of order and
Jefferson's policy proved too liberal
in some respects, and the governors-of
the university went to the other ex-
treme. After many changes, a medium,
was reached in 1842, which hit a prop-
er balance of faculty control and self-
government. The students in a reso-
lution agreed to sign a pledge at the
end of every written examination that
they had neither given nor received
any assistance, and the faculty agreed
to take them at their word.
As used in Virginia' for 71 years, the
system has proved highly satisfactory,
according to those acquainted with its
working. The plan was instituted at
Washington and Lee under the presi-
dency of General R. E. Lee; in Van-
derbilt in 1875, and in the University
of Texas at its founding in 1884. Wes-
leyan followed in 1892 and Princeton
a year later. Williams, Yale, Leland
Stanford, Lehigh and many others
have since adopted the honor system,
and it is now under consideration at
Columbia, Syracuse, and Wisconsin.
A Princeton man, recently explain
ing its working to the Syracuse Daily
Orange, told how the freshmen on en-
tering the university were informed
just what the honor system meant, and
how, as a result, the whole tone of un-
dergraduate life at Princeton has been
raised. He says:
"The system here is the very foun-
dation of Princeton life. Every man
is just as much bound to report a case
of cheating which may come to his
notice, to one of the honor committee,
as he is bound not to cheat himself.
The whole thing depends on a man's
holding the -integrity of the system
above his .own personal feelings. It
is this loyalty to the highest interests
of the whole college life, which has to
be-built up."
The honor plan of taking examina-
tions was adopted this winter at the
University of Illinois, but failed to car..
ry by about 150 votes when put to a
popular vote at Syracuse two weeks
ago because of a clause requiring that
"cribbers" be reported. It also failed
to carry at Wisconsin a year or so ago,
the bone, of contention being the "tat-
tling clause."
"Personal Experiences" will be the
subject of the talk to be given by Don
Gregory, aviator, before the Aero club
at 7:30 o'clock tonight in room
311 in the engineering build-
ing. Mr. Gregory has built
several aeroplanes with which
he has made many successful flights,
and his talk tonight will deal with
problems he has encountered both in
the construction and navigation of the
