The Chicago Tribune has of late been running a
politeness campaign and giving fifty dollars every
day to persons deemed worthy by the "politeness
reporter". And,. if accounts from visitors to the
Tribune plant are to be accepted, the employes of
this newspaper practice what they preach in the
way of courtesy.
In conducting this campaign the Tribune is aim-
ing at the development of a characteristic which it
would be well for all of us to acquire. But it is
feared that while in college we are inclined to lose
it to a considerable extent. Impoliteness toward
professors in class rooms, occasional lack of con-
sideration for the rights of women, thoughtlessness
of the feelings of others, are faults we are too often
guilty of which will mark us as a bit lacking in
some of the niceties of life.
Politeness is just a habit. As college students,
we ought to acquire it. As has been said time and
again hne of the things a man should learn in the
course of a university career is plain everyday po-
liteness, whether he learns anything else or not. It
is a quality which cannot be gotten from books; its
acquisition requires thought and practice and just
an attempt now apd then to put ourselves in the
other fellow's shoes and try to decide what we
would like to have done under certain circum-
stances. Courtesy is a simple characteristic but
inost surely marks above all others those who have
fully learned its use.

THE BEST SAFE-GUARD
Down Columbus way, at the University of Ohio,
the campus "is all in a stir" about cheating and
"cribbing" during examinations. The matter has
taken such a serious turn that several student mass
meetings have 1een held, addressed by indigant
speakers denouncing the cheaters as blights o the
honor-of Ohio State. The only and most effective
method of remedying this fault, according to sev-
eral emphatic editorials in the Ohio State Lantern,
is for the entire student body to take concerted ac-
tion in immediately reporting anyone caught in a
dishonest act during an examination.
This shows, perhaps, one of the strongest rea-.
sons why, now that the honor system has been
started in the lit school, it should be put through
by the student body. Our best safe-gurd against
such occurrances as are complained of at Columbus
is for the student body, of its own initiative and
volition, to assure the success of the honor system
by unanimous co-operation.
No progressive movement can succeed without
the whole-hearted support of those affected by it.
, The Senior class of the literary department has set
a laudable example by installing the honor system
this semester. It should have all possible encour-
agement in carrying out the test which is to deter-
mine whether or not, in examinations at Michigan
every man is to be his own keeper and guided only
by his honor.
Today there are no new continents or rbutes to
India to be discovered, but the interest in explora-
tion which reached such a height 'at the time of
Columbus is still strong.,
During the coming year at least two expeditions
in which Michigan will have a part will be sent to
remote corners of the earth. One, oganized by the
universities of Michigan, Columbia, and Indiana,
will go to the head-waters of the Amazon in search
of biological specimens: The other, in charge of
Prof.,William H. Hobbs, who is to be financed by
ex-Gov. Chase S. Osborne, will traverse a more ro-
mantic locale; but it also is going for scientific pur-
Such enterprises as these are typical of th mod-
ern attitude toward geography. The promise of
untold wealth which in former centuries has been
the chief stimulant to interest in unknown lands is
today almost ineffectual. True, some chance of
gaining appreciable wealth in the out of the way
places of the globe still exist, but they are far less
inviting than were those in the days of Cortez, and
people prefer making their way at home to facing
the hardships of the frontier.
As a result, exploration as a source of wealth
has been superseded by exploration as a source or
knowledge, and- to most people foreign lands .and
peoples have become an interest in them-
selves. This interest has undoubtedly been fos-
tered' by well-selected travel movies. That it ex-
ists is shown by the popularity of such publications
as the "National Geographical magazine".
Even what, from a commercial view point, may
now be the most barren parts of the earth
THE TABOOED CITY1
There is a city in our midst, whose beauty em-
bodies all the art and grace of imagination, whose
characters are the ideals of the centuries, whose
civilization is the product of the ages. And yet this
city is forbidden, and those who enter therein are
frowned upon, and are misjudged. Its name is the
City of Literature, and visitors are often called
grinds by those who do not enter its portals.
But to the grind this city offers no attraction, and
seldom does he pass its threshold. Nor does he
mingle with the others who remain without. Rather,
he confines himself to the narrow passages of the
text book path, and his view is shut in by the walls
of poor fellowship and isolation.
Meanwhile the guests in the City of Literature
are surrounded by the beauty, the friendships, the
art the-associations and the glories of every realm
and time. They sip nectar with the Greeks, or
munch Lotus on the banks of the Nile; they urge
chariots in Pompeii, or recline in palanquins at
PeLin; they aid Napoleon at Waterloo, or even don
a gas mask in the Argonne. Theirs is the privi-
lege of a wider vision, of a broader view upon life.
Yet, as they enter the portals, the ones* who stay
without because they do not believe in this wonder
city and would, rather seek amusement elsewhere,
sneer and scoff at them as they pass and try to turn
them from their course by branding them with un-
just names, and telling them that the City of Liter-
ature is tabooed.
