Attempt to Foster a Greater Spirit of
Honor Among Students
With the end of the semester in
sight the question of taking examina-
tions without faculty supervision has
again been raised on the campus. A
group of students, desiring to discover
the attitude of the undergraduates on
this question, has drawn up the fol-
lowing petition. All who wish to sign
it may do so at the Union or at The
Daly offices inthe AnniArbor Press
building, Maynard street.
In an attempt to foster a greater
spirit of honor among the students of
the University, and with the hope of
making that spirit felt by the faculty
and the people of the state, we have
signed this creed:
(1) That Michigan has given up
something for which we owe a debt
(2) That our class has an honor
spirit which we are in duty bound to
(3) That we each as individuals
should preserve our self-respect and
(4) That our standards should not
be lowered by countenacing the giving
or receiving of aid by any individuals
(5) That one of the ways in which
we can fulfill our duty to our Uni-
versity, to class, and to ourselves is
to maintain a spirit of honor in exam-
inations as our conscience directs.
