The titre-honored saying, "Virtue
is its own reward," mig htwell be
twisted around to apply to the work
of scores of students who enter vari-
ous phases of campus activity, and
hold some minor position, out of
which there is no hope of advance-!

and in which lies only the opportunity
of personal development through ex-

negligible in accomplishment, yet the
officers who occupy them are given a
credit for holding down responsible
and painstaking jobs. It is in viewing
these that we, too, often forget that
there are many others in contrast
whose holders occupy positions where
work is the only payment for effort.
To these holders of thankless jobs,
credit is due.
Too many times we award theE
credit for some undertaking to the
wrong person--to the person who
merely did the overseeing, while the
"underdog" carried out the actual
work. In any activity, we find that
the routine work, of which there is-
usually plenty, is carried out by the
holder of some thankless job.
But there is nothing startling In the
situation. The people who hold down
these' jobs seemingly do so because of
the human desire to be doing some-
thing. And the "higher-ups" will tell
you that the work must be done.
It is our duty, however, when op-
portunity offers, to give a word of en-
couragement to the person who gets
so little for his work and show him
that he really has 'his place in school
