WHAT IT MEANS.
There is plenty of room for moral-
ization in connection with the results
of the student vote on the question of
thehonor system. The mere fact that
such a large number of students voted
is something to be proud of, but there
is a further consideration that we
think goes a little deeper.
There are 1.800 students-exactly
two-thirds of the total number bal-
loting-who feel that a change in pres-
ent methods is necessary. They are
dissatisfied with a system that permits
students to cherish a lack of respon-
sibility toward the University and to
regard dishonesty in examinations
It is probably safe to say that there
are many in the remaining third who
share the attitude expressed by the
student who said: "If it is a question
of'choosing between a flunk and crib-
bing, just watch me crib." We be-
lieve that an honor system will ulti-
mately reduce the ranks of students
of this opinion to a negligible minor-

Eminent Jurist to Embody Opinions
of Detroit Alumni in January
Not a little comment is expected to
follow the publication of an article in
the January number of the Inlander
by Judge James O. Murfin, '96L, of De-
troit, who is also a member of the
board in control of student athletics.
The eminent jurist is said to handle a
question much agitated upon the cam-
pus in his article, "The Case Against
the Conference," as well as to embody
the opinions of a number of the De-
The contents of the coming number,
which will appear on the campus
next week is as varied as it
is interesting. Two stories each
possessing an appeal of some power,
three articles on topics of interest to
the student body, a number of spark-
ling bits of verse, and two lightly
philosophical essays entitled, "If," and
"The Poet," are said to bring the num-
ber of the magazine up to its usual
high standard of excellence.

Washington University has declined
to schedule another football game
with the Wolverines.
Ohio: Placards bearing the insignia
"B" will be placed in the class-
rooms of the Ohio State University,
in order to keep the honor tradition
before the student body. The honor
system was inaugurated at Ohio last
year and has proved a success.
Oregon: An unknown worth heiress
worth $500,000 in her own right,
with an annual income of $50,000 is

Columbia University. Upperclass-

vide an effective form of student
