.University Honor System Enjoys Record
Gained During Quarter-Century Service

Despite the skepticism of students
In other colleges in the University,
an honor system which has worked
for over 25 years is the record which
incites permissible pride in engi-
neering college students and faculty
members alike.
If figures are wanted, Prof. Axel
Marin of the mechanical engineering
'department, chairman of the faculty
Discipline Committee, reports that
seldom are more than 20 students,
or approximately one percent of
the engineering college enrollment,
brought under the committee's juris-
diction in a year.
.Students Support System
And engineering college students
will willingly testify that there is
little if any debating done which isn't
brought to the attention of the stu-
dent and faculty committees.
The system owes its success to the
fact that it is entirely directed by
'students, Professor Marin believes,
and also to the fact thatno definite
penalties have been set up as inflexi-
ble punisiments.
Cases of scholastic dishonesty are
first reported to the student Honor
'Committee, which decided on a rec-
ommendation to be made to the fac-
ulty committee. In all but a few iso-
lated instances the faculty members
have accepted the student recom-
mendation without change.
Principles Set Forth
The original Declaration of Prin-
ciples which set forth the basis for
the Honor System noted that:
1. It is neither honest nor fair to
his fellow students for a student 'to

It is the duty of all students to up-

Since its inauguration, these basic
principles of the system have been
expanded to include not only written
quizzes and examinations but also

hearted and inconsiderate tempera-
ment of Lola.
The mistreated Santuzza wears a
red and white peasant dress-with
a quilted underskirt to protect her
when she is pushed to the ground by
Turiddu and Alfio.
Great variety was carried out in
the peasant girls', dresses, bright yel-
lows, reds and greens abounding
among them and the men.
According to Miss Hirsch, it was
at this period that the Sumptuary
Laws were passed in Italy to keep
peasants within bounds as to the
amount of jewelry they wore. How-
ever, hoop earrings and varicolored
necklaces are frequent.
Costuming for "The Impresario" is
the exact opposite in type, mood and
feeling to that of the grand opera.
The dainty and sparkly mood is ex-
pressed in the pastel pink and blue
of the singer of sad songs, and in the
"happy" orange and green of the en-
ergetic prima donna. The eighteenth
century white wigs are the finest that
have ever appeared in productions
Tickets for this final operatic per-
formance may be bought at the box-
office of the Lydia Mendelssohn The-
atre any time after 10 a.m. tomorrow.
Horatios Lose At Bridge
Nosing out a student team com-
posed of M. B. O'Neil, '45M, and Art
Griep, '44M, a faculty bridge team
composed of George E. Copple and
William B. Palmer won a faculty-
student bridge tournament by a mar-
gin of eight points yesterday at the

students, as they enter the Univer-
sity, the Honor System is offered to
incoming students in the form of a
card stating its regulations which
they sign to indicate 'their support
of the system.
Perhaps the most important fea-
ture of the system is the pledge
which each student writes and signs
at 'the end of a bluebook: "I have
neither given nor received aid during
this examination."
Other regulations state that the
instructor shall give out the ques-
tions and leave the classroom, an-
nouncing where he may be found for
questioning. Students place their
exams on the instructor's desk at
the end of the period.
Few Changes Made
Completelysuccessful ever since
its inception in the fall of 1916, the
Honor System as first proposed has
been revised only in that student
control has passed from class officers
to the Engineering Council.
Although started at the sugges-
tion of Dean-Emeritus Mortimer E.
Cooley, who felt that "perhaps the
greatest good of the Honor System
is in the increased self-respect felt
by the student,'' the system is actu-
ally the result of a student petition
requesting that faculty men give the
system a trial.
Faculty Men Serve
Serving on the faculty committee
with Professor Marin are Dean A. H.
Lovell of the engineering college and
Prof. R. H. Sherlock and Prof. E. F.
Brater of the civil engineering de-
