1b-house, stadiut gridiron, baseball diamond,

THE OBSTACLE OF "THE ROPES"
Ignorance of the daily routine in his chosen pro-
sion or business nearly always puts the college
.n just starting out in-the world at a disadvan
e. He usually finds that before being even
rly well prepared for his life work he must take
e more course of.study - a course dealing with
#gs so simple that they are n.ot worth teaching
college, but so .important they are essential to
:cess.- He must "learn the ropes" in whatever
e of activity he has chosen. No text is used in
s course but actual experience, and credits are
t the keys-to advancement.-
1,1s is, of course, less true in the case of the
die, for instance, than the lit; but it applies in
ne measure to men entering almost every occu-
ion. A certain amount of so-called practical
>erience is necessary before the fundamental and
al things learned in college can be made use of.
e business world demands performance and cares
Le for theory for its own sake. I
jowever it is not decreed that the college man
st be handicapped by a lack of knowledge of
rmonpace routine. Before graduation, either
-ing vaca ion or outside oT class, he may, if he
es to, get the practical experience that will cut
a minimum his apprenticeship after graduation.
the man 'who makes a first-hand acquaintance
h the occupation he has chosen by consistently
rking at it during his spare time or vacation will
I that he has supplemented his college education
-he best possible way.
knother impetus to the movement to lengthen
hly specialized courses such as engineering ands
hitecture so as to include more cultural electives
been given by the American Institute of Arch-
ture's endorsement of the five year plan of
ly. This additional support of a schedule which
for some-time been advocated by advanced stu-
ts of education is of special significance as it
ies from men with a primarily practical view-
;mphasizing thorough vocational training, the
sent system in the professional schools which
uire only four yearsscf study has-the advantage
giving a good technical education in the mini-
in time and with the least expense. But because
professional training itself requires so much
the time-allotted little opportunity is left for
eral studies except through graduate work or
he sacrifice of dropping behind classmates. As
her of these aternatives is very appealing, four
-s is commonly considered as constituting an
:ation and the desired electives usually are
hrough the addition to the curriculum of longer
courses in engineering and similarly situated pro-
fessional schools each entrant will have the bene-
fit of an option between a course which will con-
tain a liberal number of cultural subjects and one
which is shorter and highly specialized. With both
plans presented in more or less detail he can get
an idea of the advantages of each, select the one
which best suits his needs; and follow it throjigh
with his class.

When the authorities of the University Health
service issue a warring concerning, the general
health of the student body, and urge that precau-
tion be used in preventing illness or checking the
spread of any particular epidemic, it is the duty of
all of us to take notice. The larger part of the
'tudent population during the Christmas vacation
- was widely scattered throughout the United States,
and during this time might easily have contracted
diseases which, unless given- immediate attention,
may prove serious, not to the affected alone, but
also to the entire community.
The physicians of the Health service are well
prepared to care for as many patients as may pre-
sent themselves, and any manifestations of illness
should be immediately reported. The saying that
an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
is old, but it is always a wise one to follow.
Proposals for the establishment of a Business
Ethics league, having as one of its objects the in-
troduction of courses in business ethics into the
economics curriculum offered by large universities,
seem to have met with some degree of success. Sev-
eral universities have already endorsed the plan.
Any such proposition appears to us to be im-
practicable ande to verge on the ludicrous. Doubt-
less the level of business ethics in this country
should be raised. Honesty is at too low an ebb,
but it is not to be remedied in the scientific atmos-
phere of the classroom. If a higher and more
idealistic code of ethics is to rule business in the
future it will be because the standard of honor
among men has been elevated, and honor is not
the product of lectures and text books.
Every student of economics should know the
objectionable practices prevalent in modern busi-
ness. Instructors should and do point out these
abuses and suzgest remedies for them. But a spe-
cial eburse in business ethics would be looked upon
by students merely as a -means of acquiring easily
a few hours' credit. Right or wrong is a question
that every man can settle in his own conscience.
Fire in University hall would be no joke, say, at
the slow exodus hours of nine or ten in the morn-
ing. There's a double moral: catch the firebug, and
pass the budget.
From the Maj, and Are. attendance Wednesday,
an obsever might assume that the three bolt rule

Gone also where the woodbine twineth and the
cuckoo calleth seem to be Miss McNutt, Perry
Goris and other luminaries who flashed across our
orbit during the course of the late Contest. What
say the howling mob?

The relation of childhood experiences, especially
those tending to show what a precocious child you
were, will be found especially effective. Thus hav-
ing gained the attention of everybody remark cas-
"As a small boy I had to do all the chores about
the house except bringing in the wood."
If some one registers enough interest to ask-you
why you didn't have to bring in the wood continue
in the same conversational tone of voice:
"You see is wasn't necessary. Poor Dad came
home with a load every night."
From this it is very easy to swing into other
reminscences. Rehearse telling the following one
until you make it sound almost plausible to your
"When I was seven eyars of age, the teacher
-gave the following problem in school one day, 'If
your father had nine gallons of whisky and he
drank three gallons a month, how long would the
whisky last him?' Unhesitatingly I answered,
"The teacher looked me over very sternly, re-
plying: 'Wrong, it would last him three months. I
can see you don't know arithmetic.'" Pause a
second and then ask, "And what do you think I
said to her?" When those. present have exhausted
-all their guesses, you say:
"And I says to her, 'Well, teacher, maybe I
don't konw arithmetic, but neither do you know
From thence on, if all these instructions have
been carefully mastered, your reputation as a Joe
Miller in cfisguise should be established.
