That it was actually taking a risk is indicated by the
victory of Purdue. Had Northwestern played an easy
schedule it might be said that it was not entitled tp
the regular-season championship; but quite the con-
trary was the case.
Back in 1925 Michigan, having beaten Indiana,
Wisconsin, Illinois, Ohio and Minnesota, was defeated
by Northwestern, 3 to 2, in a game played under
abominable weather conditions. Following that game,
Northwestern,'despite its victory over Michigan, con-
ceded the title to the Maize and Blue.
In view of that interesting bit of history, the
undisputed leadership of Northwestern in the regular
Conference season and the concession it made for
charity, why wouldn't it be a fitting display of sports-
manship for Michigan and Purdue to now waive all
1931 title claims in favor of Northwestern? We recog-
nize that some may resent this suggestion as being
impertinent in view of the actual statistics for the
season, including the charity games. But there is
something to be said for generous sportsmanship.
STRETCHING THE HONOR SYSTEM
(The Daily Princetonian)
The honor systei is one of the most integral and
highly valued institutions in Princeton's body of tra-
dition and it should certainly not \ie used by the
Faculty to serve any special purpose not generally
intended to be included in it. Yet last week one of
the, questions on an hour test in Ancient Oriental
Literature 303 asked how many pages of outside read-
ing the student had done. The answer to this question
was to count 20 percent of the total mark.
Not only is this no- means of judging a student's
knowledge but it involves at the same time an ex-
tension of the honor system which we believe might
lead to unfortunate results, distinctly dangerous to
this highly 4easured undergraduate. privilege. No
particular phrase in the pledge itself would forbi
cheating on such 'a question, and it is indeed possi
ble that some men might feel rationally justified in
a partially dishonest reply because. of the peculiar
nature of a question of this type.
In all events, the honor system is too valuable to
be trifled with. If it can be "honorably" disregarded
at one time, it may very easily come to be dishonor-
ably disregarded at others. Certainly it seems highly
uIndesirable that any professor errdanger it by mak-
ing it operate in such unusual circumstances.

To The Editor:
There are many things more important than foot-
ball championships always, particularly at a time of
economic stress, but seldom are there things more
important than good sportsmanship. It is my firm
belief that Michigan by all rules of good sportsman-
ship should recognize Northwestern University as the
Big Ten champions of 1931 football. They won that
championship in the regular schedule beating by big
scores such teams as Minnesota and Ohio State. Be-
cause a post-season game was lost they say the Wild-
cats must share the title. In 1925 Northwestern after
beating Michigan recognized the Wolverines as vic-
tors. So I join with the proposal of the Grand Rapids
Herald and other papers in asking that Michigan act
as a good sport in giving Northwestern the cham-
pionship she would have won had not conditions
been entirely different than they had been before.
Surely Michigan wins enough to stand aside for once
in this unique situation. My study here in the North-
western graduate school shows me that Northwest'ern
always stresses good sportsmanship and I hope my
university of undergraduate days can also look as
fine. James W. McKnight, '26.

be any other explanation of the

aroused the worst passions in the
hearts of the Daily Staff. As the

tours of inspection, President Ruth-
ven was killed for their benefit, and
a wonderful imitation of a Paper
'FacedWith A Crisis was staged.

dance for the Interscliolastic
pressers night before last which
is said to have been a great suc-
cess for the advisers. One of
them-a female member of the
Daily Staff-was dancing with
one of the highschool fellows
and told him she was an advi-
ser. "Is that so?" he exclaim-
ed, "I never would have thought
it. You're much too beautiful
to be as old as that!"
And that, surely, is enough room
to devote to high-school affairs and
furthermore it is all the room we
have today, thank you, and how
are you? A fond farewell and just
oodles of love to all youse darlings..
