some of the "regulars" enter the class-
room with the odor of the eye-opener
oozing from their pores. Old St. Pat-

and promised daily that it would be
released "tomorrow," but tomorrow
ziever came, and the poor old snake, the
last of his race, died like so many of
the last scions of noble families die

Backed by the sincere desire to
better the university, and feeling that
success must surely be theirs, will
these dry-zone advocates leave Ann

The snakes remaining in Ireland are

Editor, The Michigan Daily:-
Cheating continues. No decisive ac-
tion is taken by the students. The bur-
den is left upon the shoulders of the
faculty when it should rightfully re-
vert to those of the students. When
the question is put before the majority
of students they nod, gulp and walk
away muttering, "Why concern my-
self with the dishonest ones, they can
do no harm to me?"
Here is just where the "rub" comes
in. The honor system is misunder-
stood. Its consequences have gained
but faint realization. Let us attempt
to show wherein the honest student is
harmed by ailowing the dishonest one
"to put one over," as it were. To do
this some exaggeration of the situation
will be made.
To some extent the professors must
rely on the standard of the classes in
order to gauge their grades. Here is
'where the cheat does his greatest
harm to the "innocent bystander." The
cheat hands in knowledge not his own,
and thereby influences the professor
to think that class an exceptional one,'
and his grades are gauged accordingly.
An A is no longer an A. It means
much more. The standard of the class
.is higher, and double A work must be
done to receive an A. If we carry this
far enough, and allow f6r exaggera-
tion, we have something like the table
below resulting.
For AA work one would get only A.
For A work one would get only B.
For B work one would get only C.
For C work one would get only D.
For D work one would get only E.
For E work one would get only F.
There is still another reason why it
is up to the student body to discard its
mantle of inactivity, and to go forth
and root out those who not only dis-
turb the equilibrium of the marking
system, and cause unjust grades to be
given, but also compel us to live in an
atmosphere of ethical distrust, an at-
mosphere of almost penal restraint.
They create just that stranger-dis-
trustful, suspicious attitude between
teacher and student that pervades not
only this university but also almost all
educational institutions. Michigan is
making great strides toward the lift-
ing of this veil of distrust in which we
are enshrouded, and we, the student
body, should keep the ball rolling by
active work in rooting out the black
sheep' of our fold.

That the competition in the annual
interscholastic meet, scheduled for the
latter part of May, will include schools
from farther away than any previous
meet, is evidenced by the letters re-
ceived by Interscholastic Manager
Frank G. Millard.
In addition to the inquiries received
last week from a Pittsburgh high
school, and several Wisconsin schools,
Manager Millard is in communication
with California schools, and recently
received a letter from a New Orleans
high school. If enough material is
developed before May, the Louisiana
school promises to send a list of en-

Rewards for the main competition,
or the class A events, will be similar
to those of last year. They will con-
sist of medals for the first places, and
special cups given by nearly the same
honorary societies and merchants as
donated them last year. The events'
in class A will be more numerous than
in the smaller class, and probably will
be the same as those of last year.

Unfailing optimism and a tendency
to disregard the temporary failures of
life pervade the book. It is a reaction
against the present day worship of the
dollar sign, although there is no trace
of bitterness or satire brought into the
simple narrative.
The poet, who is undoubtedly a char-
acterization of James Whitcomb Riley,
the Indiana bard, smiles tolerantly but
wisely throughout the pages. Acting
in defense of the principles which his
poetry expounds, he steps in and saves
the home of a man who has been led
aside from his ideals to a subservience
to the idol of financial gain. And he
prevents a young man and girl from
being swallowed up by commercialism,
setting them on the road to happiness.
It is a cheery, hopeful tale, and, al-
though not so forceful or emotional as
the theme might warrant, can well be
recommended as an antidote for an at-
tack of the blues.

We make clothes to FIT. The shoulders are per-
feet, the collar sets to the neck, the lapels hang
smooth and graceful, the whole contour of the
garment gives you a feeling of ease and satisfac-
tion. There's an artistic tone in clothes made by
us that few tailors equal, and that you cannot find
in-ready-made clothes at all.
