The E-Egoogles
In a spot on the Campus,
No one knows it quite well-
In a spot bleak and dreary,
There the E-Egoogles dwell.
In a pot and a caldron,
They, the Finals will brew,
Deep questions and problems
The leering E-Egoogles review.
Soon these Finals shall come,
And soon they will go,
Those who will flunk out-
Just the E-Egoogles know.
In that spot on the Campus,
And I think I know where-
The Prof's head, from the eyes u
The E-Egoogles are there.




Editor, The MichigannDaily:p t
As I daily frequent the precincts
of our Union, one thing always comes
to my attention as being a particular
eye-sore. The periodical room which
is possibly the most frequented part
of the entire building with the per-
haps exception of the tap room is in
a perpetual state of disorder. The
papers and magazines are never on
the racks which are provided for
ther. What is more, it is almost im-
possible to find such papers when
one wants them. We find them strewn
all over the floor, half torn.
It appears to me that if the Union
has zany pride in the appearance of its
building, it ought to see that this state
of affairs is not allowed to continue
for it certainly detracts from the ap-
pearance of the place. Why can't the
Union see that such disorder is stop-

Jpst one week remains for juniors
and seniors in the literary college to
decide whether or not they desire
their final examinations to be taken
under the honor system. Because of
the apparent lack of any fixed stand-
ards of conducting examinations atI
present, it is deemed imperative to as-
certain to what extent the honor sys-j
tem will be responsive to public opin-!
ion. Seemingly, the only manner in1
which this can be done is through the
co-pperation of the faculty in taking
a vote . on it, especially in coursesj
open only to upper-classmen.
Because a class does not on its own
initiative hand in a signed petitionI
to the professor asking for the honor
system is not necessarily indicative
of the fact that a majority of students
in the class do not want it. It may
merely mean that no one student orf
group of students has sufficient time1
or i, enough inspired to get up a pe-
tition and circulate it around theI
class. If the professor were to take
an oral or written vote as to how the
class wanted the examination con-j
ducted be might find a good many, if
not a majority, in favor of the honor
To install the honor system in the
literary college unless it were sub-
servient to student opinon would be
a nistak e. But the laxity of the pres-
ent method of handling examinations
is the strongest argument for giving
this system a fair trial. The faculty
may play its part in seeing to it that
every upper-classman who wants an
honor examination is able to get one.
One criticism of the modern uni-
versity is that the student is givenj
too much leeway in selecting his
courses. But if he goes about this
task conscientiously in an effort to
take the subjects which will best pre-
pare him for his life's work and help
him to secure the fund of generalI

As archaic theories in regard to the
various sciences have been replaced
by new ones, so have former theories
of education been superseded by more
modern and up-to-date ideas. No long-
er is education regarded as a process
which stops when the individual
leaves school, 'but one which is con-
tinous and unending as long as there
is life. Students in the University who
are intent on entering the business
or professional worlds, particularly
the latter as it requires special train-
ing, will do well to take cognizance
of this fact.
Many of the leading doctors of the
country go abroad every five or six
years to familiarize themselves with1
the latest developments in the medi-I
cal profession from a foreign stand-
point. Able lawyers and successful
jprofessional men in general continue
their thirst for knowledge long after
they have departed from the scholar-i
ly atmosphere which pervades our
institnions of learning. One way in
which this is done is by reading the
more progressive magazines whichI
cover the particular field of endeavorI
the individual is folloiwng.
On the other hand there are count-
less men who think that their periodI
of acquiring new information ends
when they receive their diplomas. For
a while they may be successful. But
soon others with new ideas enter the
field, and those who have nothing to
learn are relegated to the back-
ground. Unless there is a re-awaken-j
ing they are apt to become hopeless
old fogies.

versity every year are hundreds of
students who have prepared to enter
