"That story," he said gravely but
enthusiastically, "is the best short
story that has ever been handed in
to me. In fact, it is the best that has
ever been written."
These instances are undoubtedly ex-
ceptional, it is admitted. Nevertheless
the practice of using other people's
work as a model, if not in act, is al-
together too common among students.
Like all other forms of cheating it
seldom accomplishes even the un-
worthy end it seeks and always hurts
the user. The offender is the victim-
also. The number who have been able
to pass a course they would otherwise
have flunked by copying themes is so
small as to be negligible.
In addition, many more of the of-
fenses are detected or strongly sus-
pected than most students realize. Ie
is always a delicate situation and the
camouflage is sometimes so well done
that the instructor can take no official
action. Whether his personal convic-
tion is or is not harmful to the
chances of the offending student is not
difficult to guess.
THE DRAMATIC FIELD
There is no doubt but that the num-
her of students attending campus dra-
matic presentations would be vastly,
increased if their -,alue was more gen-
erally known. Everyone enjoys the
opera when it gives its yearly produc-
tion, but there is no reason why They
should not continue to be amused by
campus talent in the weekly perform-
ances of smaller organizations.
S everalof these can already point
to past members who now,, occupy

There is no species of manual labor
that I enjoy but of all the jobs that I
remember engaging in I can recall
none that combines so many disagree-
able features as ashing 300 feet of
ashy walk. If the condition of the
pail (it's got to be an old pail) is such
that the handle is in momentary dan-
ger of coming off unless just the cor-
rect balance is maintained the job is
particularly hazardous, but even with
a good pail it's not an inviting occupa-
tion even to persons who have more
zest for household tasks than I have.
I suppose the percentage of ashes
that one inhales is .so small that if
t wel'e expressed mathematically one
wouldbe ashamed of even mentioning
such a trifle. But even .00000000003
of four pails of fine ashes becomes of
some significance when the said insig-
nifieant fraction passes through one's
respiratory tract and lodges in the
Sand can be substituted for ashes
with considerable advantage. You get
just as cold putting it on, you have
to fill the pail just as often (oftener,
probably), Land you're just as likely to
fall on the ice and pay with'a fracture
for the altruistic service you're rend-
ering to your neighbors. But it can't
so easily blow in your face, lodge in
your hair, and fill the cuff of your
trousers. There is no sandpit on our
premises and if there were it would
be frozen hard when needed. Ashes,
on the other hand, though they are a
loathsome product from every point of
view, are offensively plentiful in our

The French people have naturally

THOSE WHO MARE THE NOISE
The headline actors have always
been written down in history and
their periods judged by them, while
the people, the steady, useful, indust-
rious,:'well-meaning people have ever
been overlooked. Mastadonic figures
are the ones that stand out and yet it
is the bees, the ants, the mice, and the
beavers that do the lasting work. Thu:
while statesmen and orators are dis-
posing of the country's destiny, "doing.
up its fate in half-pound packages,"
and generally making the noise, buy-
ing and selling, marrying and bury-
ing goes on quite the same.

the world that amounts to a hill of
