Those who tremble when the adop-
tion of the Honor system is suggested
may ask, how can the college expect
success while it is being fed from high
schools where nothing like th honor
system is operative? Before answer-
ing that one, ,why not ask, just what
is the situation' in the average high
school? The writer has had an ppin-
ioni on this subject for a long time,
hut it had' no hasit in fact until re-
cently. It was my opportunity last fall
to speak on the Honor system t a
group of over 60 pre-freshmen. These
men came to their' university early,
onI inviitation, and were treated to a
kind of Freshman XMeek. They were
selected from among those admitted
from many states, :hence the _informa-
tion to be gathered from them was
likely to be of a general nature.
By asking for an Informal showing
of, hands, answers to a few questions
were -easily obtained. If thre results
are to be taken as representative of
conditions over the country at ,large,
then -first, the =Honor system or any-
thing like' it virtually does. not exist
-in tile high school ; and second, i-
bonasty is prevalent in the majority
of high schools.j
The answer to the .first. question i
now evident: college student bodies
now successfully operatingHonor ys- j
toms are very largely made up of i
students from high schools wherel
cheating is prevalent, and is not held
in contempt. That is, give the averagef
college man, who comes with !plenty!
of knowledge and often some practice
at the art of cribbing, a chance to re-
spond to being trusted, and he re-
sponds. And by the way. If hie does
not respond, ;the college is very much
to be censu'r'ed for allowing him to
remain in college. Our crooks are too
well educated already.
The Tau Beta Pi survgy has definite
ly established the fact that the Honor!se a a t gets ucs;
in :small, compact professinal, cl-.
leges having inherently a fair degree
of unity of purpose, a high student1
morale, and a good school spirit. A [.
few colleges of this class are so small
and have such excellent faculty-stu-
tend relations that any formal Honor
system is unnecessary.
The greatest difficulty in adoptingf
and ,operatng the Honor system is
encountered in the overly-large cl-
lege having a mixed student group
in which little unity of purpose is r
:manifest either in college work pur-
sued or ultimate goal sougt.. TheI
usual example of this kind of groulp is
found in the college of literature, arts,
and sciences. ;Let us therefore con-
fine the discussion by referring, brief-
ly, ;to the Liberal :Arts college..
The all-too-usual reaction obtained
to a suggestion of adopting the Honor
system in the Liberal Arts college is
this., our students are of both sexes;
4a most of them are here only for a
general education,: they have no unity;;
too many of them have no serious
purpose of any kind; ;the .general mo-l
rate, .as Indicated.'by lack of what may
be called ;school spirit, is low; the
mass is too heterogenous; how can
we hope for success of the Honor sys
temR
The argument of the preceding pr-
agvph can be best discissed with the
statement that it completely lacks
spine. It furthermore disregards com-
pletely the crux of the problem which
Is: the more loosely the student body
is .made up, the worse conditions are,
and the greater the need ;tor some
kind of character-stimulating influ-'
ence. I do not insist that the Honor
