SATURDAY, MAY 26, 1917.
Dr. Abraham Flexner once declared
that "a youth may win his degree in
college on a showing that would, in
an office, cost him his desk." This
charge, made by a man whose opinion
is well worthy of our consideration,
is of too serious a nature to be ignored
by us.
This accusation against the college
man has been made, not only by Dr.
Flexner, but by other great educators.
Already the idea is prevalent among
the American people that the college
is a place to loaf and to have a good
time; that students are merely at-
tending college to win honors and
trophies in athletics.
Although it is true that most uni-
versity students are too sincere to
be suspected of loafing and misrepre-
senting true college ideals. it must be
admitted that there is a class of stu-
dents in our universities whose con-
duct is well deserving of censure and
is not in accord with true college
A case might be cited where two
freshmen and a junior, all from the
same town, were called upon to ap-
pear before the dean in answer to a
complaint made by their landlady,

If a remedy is to be sought for the
evils of college life, we can find it
right here. The upperclassman, as thej
most experienced of the two, interprets
the meaning of college life to the
freshman; the fresh, on the other hand,
inexperienced as he is, at a time when
he has first broken nis home ties and
entered into new surroundings, fol-
lows the examples given him by his
seniors. The conduct of the freshman,
therefore, depends upon the interpre-
tation of college spirit and college
traditions as made by his elders.
Thus, when we consider that the
freshman is to be looked up to in the
future, we realize what a great re-
sponsibility rests upon the shoulders
of the upperclassman.
If, as President Woodrow Wilson
has, said, "The college is for the train-
ing of the men who are to' rise above
the ranks," then the upperclassman
has an important duty to fulfill.
The making or breaking of the
freshman depends upon the attitude
of his elders towards him. He under-
stands his college as it is interpreted
to him, and it is up to the interpreters
to interpret wisely.
