The life of a farmer is never one of
great joy because of the many trou-
bles that beset an agriculturist at
every turn of the way. After the
World War conditions became such'
I that the ability of a farmer to main-
tain a satisfactory income was taxed
to the utmost. Low markets, ineffec-.
Then and there they agreed upon a
set of Canons of Jourpalism, a code
of ethics for newspaperdom., It was
too bad that all the critics of the way;
American newspapers are run were
not "listening in". What they would
have heard of journalism's self-re-
spect and fundamental beliefs in de-
cency and fairness would have been
nighty good for what ails them.
The editors in that "upper room"
did not get out and range the wide
empyrean for the clauses of that
code. The material lay ready to their
They simply took the best and bet-
ter practices of their everyday work
and put them together. Most of the
code clauses are a sort of "second!

There is no new thing in these Can-
ons of Journalism drafted and approv-}
ed by the American Society of News-
paper Editors. Nor is there anything
"revolutionary'? about the code to
men and women who spend their
days on the greater and decenter
For instance, one section of the
code deals with "Responsibility". The
veriest unlicked cub of a reporter
must be taught that. Other sections
deal with "Independence" and with
that great rghit" Freedom ,cf the
Press" guaranteed to Nation and
Newspaper by the Bill of Rights. "Im-
partiality" and "Fair Play" and "De-
cency have their places therein.
Grouped together in the Canons are'

issues. Solution of the problem must
begin with the elimination of indi-
vidual wastefulness. We as students
are not exceptions fo the rest of thel
nation in this respect. We daily waste;
time, both our own and that of oth
ers. We waste money in uselss ex-
penditures. We throw away clothing
which might well be given some
