Rome, are a magnificent monument to hundreds of
men and women who died as heroic deaths as he -
but Lincoln, the Man, should be revered because he
had a vision - a vision which embodied the real
spirit of equality ; and because the opposition of the
most brilliant men in the world at that time did
not deter him from the course which he had chosen
because he believed it to be right.
Lincoln was primarily a real man, the sort of
man whom any one of us would be glad to know.
That he was born in a log cabin of humble antece-
dents, and that he was shot to death by a half-
crazed fanatic would seem to be two of the most
unimportant components of the picture which the
great American public should hold in its hearts of a
man who believed in administration of right as he
saw it, who had the courage of his convictions and
whose death was nothing more than the reassur-
ance that he could give, like those men whom he
revered and for whom he silently wept, "the last
full measure of devotion."

Rersons wishing to secure information concerning news for any

of all news to be printed that night.
The outcome of the honor system, on trial to-
morrow in the literarycollege, is now purely a mat-
ter of the state of mind in which the students in ex-
amination sections place themselves. The great de-
sirability of the system if it can possibly be applied
is no longer a matter of discussion - the class
meetings which adopted the plan did so without a
dissenting vote. But enforcement is a matter of
will, involving not only a disposition not to cheat,
but a determination to enter into the spirit of the
plan. Here are some of the most important means
to make the system a success:
I. The attitude of the entire class must be ab-
solutely serious from the opening of the examina-
tion; the honor system must not be made a joke.
:. Wherever possible, the warning method
should be used. The student who will stand on his
feet and say "there is cheating going on in this
room" is not only giving a possible offender another
chance, but is making it improbable that many
names will have to be turned in.
3. Care should be taken to call the attention of
one or more other students in the vicinity to any
violation, so that there may be sufficient evidence
when the name is reported.
4. Every student should be careful to avoid any
appearance of cheating. Alternate seating arrange-
ments should be provided for.
5. At the completion of the examination each
student should be sure to sign the pledge stating
that he has neither given nor received aid.
There is a tendency in our all-too-ready idealiza-
tion of the man's lowly birth and martyrdom, to
forget those principles for which Lincoln stood -
or at least to mask them behind a romantic veil of
"from rail-splitter to president." Too much of this
spirit is prevalent among the teachers of our pri-
mary and grammar schools. The log cabin origin
of the man who has been if not the greatest, at
least one of the greatest presidents of the United
States, is stressed; the tragic death of Lincoln is
made much of; the fact that Lincoln freed the
slaves is considered, at least in the Northern states,
to be of prime importance; but ft is Lincoln the
man - Lincoln the warrior, whose real personality
is often dimmed by a veil of romantic and popular
In thinking of Abraham Lincoln, popular orators
commit to a great extent the same error that pas-
tors often make in dealing with the life of Christ,
the greatest man - they stress too much his mar-
tyr's death, and leave out entirely the side of him
which exemplified the warrior - fighting contin-
ually for Right - believing implicitly that the prin-
ciples for which he fought were true, and strug-
gling for their realization.
When we think of Lincoln, instead of placing him
upon a pedestal, a somewhat remote personage to
be honored, but in no wise to be understood, why
would it not be far more commendable to treat him
as a man, as we may be sure Lincoln would much
rather be treated? Reverence for him should
come not from the fact that he died a martyr's
death - the crumbling ruins of the Colosseum, at

Six stars may be measured with a fair degree of
accuracy. Out of all the millions of stars in the
heavens science as represented by Dr. A. A. Mick-
elson has evolved a formula which will give the di-
ameter, or half the diameter or double the diameter
of these six stars.
Just what the advantage is of knowing that the
diameter of any one of these six stars is so many
hundreds or thousands of miles or twice that many
miles or only half that distance is beyond our ken.
Perhaps we are too prone to poke fun at the new
step in astronomy and ridicule it merely because it
looks so useless. We cannot see how life on this
planet will be affected for either good or ill simply
because some few men can calculate the size of
these stars. Probably, we say, this knowledge will
of itself never be of any practical aid to human life.
Be this as it may, we should never forget that sci-
ence struggles forward slowly and often blindly.
Billions of apples had fallen before Newton was
"beaned" and the theory of gravitation evolved.
Countless generations lived and died knowing that
the earth was not a ball. When isolated thinkers
here and there maintained that the earth was round
they were hooted and jeered, because an ignorant
commonality failed to see the implications of either
flatness or rotundity. Before the days of Galileo
astronomy was held prisoner by astrology and few
were the dreamers who visioned the effects that
would be produced as the direct result of the pos-
sibilities opened by use of the telescope without
which astronomy, accurate navigation, and trans-
oceanic exploration would have been impossible.
Condemnation of Dr. Michelson as the inventor
of a formula which represents nothing but a waste
of time and an exercise in astral mathematics should
be withheld.

Dear Noah:
I have just killed the hero in the Union opera which
I have been writing. What shall I do now?
K. L. S.
If your Union opera hero was like some we have
seen, all you have to do now is to sit tight and wait
for the student body to give you a vote of thanks.
Girls, Ain't We Cutting?
Her-Come on now, 'fess up. You fellows would
just as soon go out with a dunb co-ed as the others?
Hiiii-What others?
He Said to Her
I met you on the campus,
With other dames so fast.
I saw you rouge your cheeks one time
As I was going past.
I saw your hair in rags,
Tomake tomorrow's curl,
And so I'll say "Good bye" to you
And hunt myself a Girly!
And Her Comeback
I met you at the Union,
With other flirting "he-vamps."
I saw you enter Huston's
With a lot of other scamps.
I heard you cuss a time or two,
As only rough-necks can,
And so I'll say, "GOOD NIGHT" to you
And hunt myself a Man !
Heard at the Basketball Game
Co-ed-Why did they call a foul on our man?
Escort-For holding.
Co-ed-Tee hee, he's just like the rest of the
